What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 149 Stack Exchange communities.

If not commercially sensitive, what requests/s peak does the site currently handle?

And how do you forecast load? Do you have such a thing as a peak to average ratio? and if so what do you use?

What do you use to monitor/analyse the logs? Presumably the weblogs from IIS are similar to apache's i.e. 1 line per request?

Do you do analysis like Mozilla do on their weblogs to see who and what browsers access the site etc?

Jeff talked about the size/request load in a Meta question about growing communities and int multiple podcasts (right now 1m visits per day), but here's a graph:





The sites are monitored using Google Analytics and Quantcast.

Ok thats great, but i'm really looking to see the max peaks that are seen in terms of requests/s, 600,000 requests per day over 12hrs is only 15/s if averaged out evenly. Even if you have a peak to average ratio of 3 then thats still only 45/s –  Codek Feb 18 '10 at 16:45
