I'd like to know how many page views per second (or hour or minute) you have.
I see these "users online" on forums but that isn't much use to me.
For developing forum software I need to know what level I need to get the pages per second up to. I already have it pretty high but need real world examples so I know how high is enough -
eg is 50 pages per second enough.
Originally posted by rhs98 Does that mean your software can cope with a burst of fifty pages per second or continous? Fifty pages a second - is this fifty complete (graphics, etc.) pages a second?
50 pages/sec? where does that number come from?
The software probably could handle it actually. But I doubt the hardware could.
The requests per second are probably even at a lower level than graphics and icons etc. I'm guessing it also includes initial request followed by an ack response followed by headers followed by another response followed by ... etc. I could be wrong, but that's my understanding.
the 50pages/sec came from the orginal poster; he was asking how many pages/sec was reasonble for a peice of forum software. Did you have to pay for your forum software of is it open source/free stuff?
Word of mouth, virial marketing, spamming (we don't condone it and disallow it on our forums, but members tend to advertise on other forums). We did, maybe 1.5 years ago, try some print ads but they didn't work well at all.
