What are Advanced Metrics?
Since version 1.8 (Beta) of Minecraft, there is a built in API to collect certain statistics about your server. This uses the GameSpy4 Protocol to query servers and get information.
If you enable the advanced query protocol, we will collect the following information:
- Server Type
- Player Count and Player Maximums
- Plugins Installed
- Online Player Names
