The TechZone got Dugg today and lived to tell about it. Digg has grown really big since the last time TTZ got Dugg and I was wondering if the upgraded servers would be able to handle the load from a site that does 200 million page views a month.
The initial Digg put a huge strain on the Apache server and maxed out the available RAM (4GB). This slowed the site down to crawl. However, after a quick reboot, everything work fine and we were able to handle everything the Digg put on us. This blog and the TTZ Media Network was not affected by the Digg because they’re on separate servers.
Oh ya, the obvious question; how much was this Digg worth? Answer: about $300 extra income. Enough for a night out on the town! 😀
