Lees dit interview in de Gentoo Linux Newsletter met Ramon van Alteren voor een kijkje achter de schermen bij Hyves met wat leuke feiten en cijfertjes.
"GMN: What is the scale of your website?
Ramon: We currently have over 6 million registered users and counting, peak performance is currently at 150+ million page views per day (13 million per hour). These are filtered page views, raw http requests on our web farm are well over 20.000 req/sec.
On our mysql database backend, we serve roughly 100.000 actions/sec at peak performance. Aside from the web frontend and the database backend we have a very large file-storage for media that our users upload. The total used storage totals around roughly about 280 Terabytes. All in all with all hosts accounted for we have 1800 servers most of them with 2 or 4 cores each. All of these run Gentoo Linux. :-)"
