Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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
