Second Life Statistics – September 2016 Update

Net Growth At Last

Good news this month that according to Tyche Shepherd last week ending 4th September there was a net growth of 9 regions in Second Life. Linden Owned regions were among the growth this time and it’s good to see the lab adding regions in Second Life after 13 years. It’s always good to see positive net growth at any given time of the year and shows there is still interest for regions in Second Life. Yay!🙂

A net growth of 9 regions on the grid this week and while all the growth was among Linden Owned, the number of Private Estates remained unchanged which is probably news in itself

Second Life Regions

These are the latest grid numbers as of 4th September 2016…

  • Total number of Main Grid regions: 24, 176
  • Private Estates: 17, 098 
  • Linden Owned: 7, 078
  • Private Estate losses now stands at 677 regions (3.8% loss).

The grid has continued to decline in regions since my last report back in June 2016 and if the decline continues then you can expect the total amount of regions to drop below the 24, 000 mark along with Private Estates dropping under the 17, 000 mark within the next 3 months.

With the public launch of Sansar four months away it will be interesting to see what impact that will have on the grid numbers for both Second Life and for OpenSim grids. We will have to wait and see.

Daily Concurrency

The daily concurrency in Second Life seems to be averaging between 51, 000 (at max) – 27, 000 (lowest) on a daily basis at the moment. In the past the daily concurrency average was much higher than this. As the summer comes to an end I would imagine the daily concurrency will start increasing again as we head into the autumn / winter season.

New Second Life Signups

As of 7th September 2016 there have been 47,  331, 992 signups for Second Life to date. On average there are between 10, 000 to 14, 000 new sign ups every day for Second Life.


On 16th August Maria Korolov posted this blog post > OSgrid, Metropolis, Kitely lead in land growth which is worth checking out. “The land area of the active public OpenSim grids now totals the equivalent of 63, 286 standard regions, an increase of nearly 4,000 regions compared to last month. Registered users went up by more than 4,000, to 480,834, and actives increased by 439 to 31,609“.

  • InWorldz, OsGrid and Metropolis have the most active users
  • OSgrid, Metropolis, Kitely have the most regions

My next Second Life statistics blog post will be posted in December 2016.
