If you do not want to wait for a reboot cycle, you can manually start pkgstats.timer.

pkgstats can also be run manually: see pkgstats -h for usage information.

Results and reference

Statistics are available at https://www.archlinux.de/?page=Statistics.

The following open source project allows you to get the statistics data as JSON: ArchLinuxPkgStatsScraper, as well as a web front end to compare the data is available: https://trycatchchris.co.uk/archpackagecompare/. You can read the official forum thread for more info.
