Bring it on!

Recently I did a bit of show and tell on some of the volumes that we’re dealing with on our new infrastructure. It’s less than a month later and we’re handling over 3.5 billion events per day.

Nov 15, 2011 -- Events per second

(The three spikes that you see are due to the fact that we’re still trying to figure out the balance between event archive compression speed versus size. We should have this figured out over the next few weeks. Hopefully I can convince our Ops folks to do a post on what they’re learned.)

A bit of Show and Tell

The show:

Oct 21, 2011 -- Events per second

Nov 7, 2011 -- Events per second

The tell:

We are in the process of ramping up the traffic on the new architecture that we’ve been blogging about. We recently reached a new milestone: 2 billion events in a single day. The system poked its head up, looked around a little, shrugged and went back to sleep. It performed very well yawning the whole time.
