Busy Stores / High Load


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I run a store which is generally under very low utilization. However; twice a year we run a prmotional sale for approx. 48 hours in which we regularly see 30-100+ concurrent users shopping. During these peaks of traffic the server load soars 30-50 (linux box). This year we upgraded to a dual Xeon 2.8GHz + 2Gig Ram + Raid 5.


Does anyone have any advice that runs similar systems or gets hit with spikes of traffic also? This is a single machine that is one the whole greatly under-utilized 99% of the year. PHP5 & Mysql 5

What exactly is the question? Does the server crap out or are you looking for a better configuration or what?


I ran a site that took 80,000 + uniques in under 24 hours, built on osC - whats the prob?
