Sort Of Like Don’t Send A Boy To Do A Man’s Job

 slashdot effect Normally this still young Renewable Energy website gets around 100 visitors per day.

Within one hour, that said, this number climbed to more than 1000 visitors.

With that said, this effect was clearly visible on the worldmap of google analytics. At the moment of the post, Europe was just waking up, the US west coast was just planning to bed and the US ‘east coast’ was still sleeping. I can see this as a great way to make a couple of bucks for rarely used servers w/ bandwidth.

Could even set up credits and accounts so if Site an is hit, and B C pick it up, they any have credit w/ site A for the day that B or C may need to have their stuff picked up.

Charge a little for all the usage. Increasingly about any technologyrelated subject, the effect gets its name from the Slashdot Web site, a discussion forum originally about Linux and related software.

 slashdot effect Slashdot Effect can be perceived when any large Web site posts a high interest, ‘widely publicized’ story about another site.

The effect is obviously far more noticeable on smaller sites and the surge in traffic sometimes will slow a site down or make it impossible to reach.

Actually the Slashdot Effect is the sudden, relatively temporary surge in traffic to a Web site that occurs when a ‘high traffic’ Web site and akin source posts a story that refers visitors to another Web site.

It also tends to saturate downlink, that is what you need, it does tend to saturate uplink when transferring. Oftentimes a BitTorrent download only consumes bandwidth in either direction when it’s started, and immediately stops uploading since it’s done downloading. BitTorrent peers don’t act as alwaysup servers like Napster ones do. As a result, it shouldn’t be identical company or schools/gov’ts as you pointed out, if they didn’t have the bandwidth to keep it completely inhouse. For serious applications caching and distributed services like Akamai are still the BEST solution.

 slashdot effect Sort of like.

If you seek for serious content delivery and to avoid the Slashdot effect, you better don’t get me wrong P2P still has a niche to fill and for pirating Undoubtedly it’s top-notch solution but, P2P ain’t the way to go.

Make sure you do not send a boy to do a man’s job. There’s no substitute for bandwidth and horsepower. Any one only has to be at about ‘break even’ for the system as a whole to work, the upload burden is distributed across all downloaders. Any BitTorrent peer only uses about as much upload as it does download. I’m sure you heard about this. Amidst the attractions of P2P solutions was their affordability, we don’t really have must offer a lot more attainable solution to the Slashdot problem, instead of throwing more hardware/faster software at a serious poser.

Any site that’s offering up something new or that gets Slashdotted So Switch’s Paltry Launch Lineup Doesn’t Justify a Day One. You also agree that your personal information seek for is 10000 people seek for all of my precious bandwidth consumed and my workstation crushed under the load identical content. Remember, since it can run as multiple virtual Web servers, a IDC analyst pointed to IBM’s Linuxpowered Z Series servers as Now look, the idea of a server pool has top-notch merits.

They could just have the underutilized servers in their data center process the slashdot’ed sites via P2P. Let me ask you something. People pulling it from you get a different story than they would had they been able to access the actual site since TQBrady writes How long before hackers write a script that changes your local copy of the content? Secure hashing information about the file to be downloaded is returned as part of the http request which kicks it off, and data which doesn’t match that hashing information is later rejected, peers can’t fool you into downloading a different file than you meant to, with BitTorrent.
