On June 25, 2009 Michael Jackson passed away. In the 24 hours which followed traffic on the internet surged by up to 20% worldwide. Twitter failed after reaching a volume of over 5000 tweets per minute about the event. TMZ crashed and burned, as did the LA times. Dozens of more sites failed under the load.

This has unfortunately led to an explosion in the number of marketing beacons per site. Adobe, Facebook, Google, hundreds of more (and it seems like more by the day). Now we come to the problem. You have dozens of people in your marketing department. They each have a favorite solution.

Find out more at www.FoulkConsulting.comSession is one of the more confusing items in performance testing and engineering because we use it so many different ways. Session duration is the time someone visits the site from beginning to end. Session objects are the items that we hold in memory until a person leaves a site. Session timeout is how long we wait after the last request to clean up the session objects after the last request. I want to speak about the first and the last because too many people conflate session duration with session timeout when setting up their web server, often with disastrous results on high load days.

Today was the first day of operations for a site managed by the South Carolina Cares act. The site opened up this morning to accept applications from nonprofits, minority owned and small businesses with fewer than 25 employees that have been impacted financially due to COVID-19.The site became inaccessible almost immediately for registration, reporting errors to users that the site had reached its available portal license limit.

Today's Episode if brought to you by* Foulk Consulting Services: https://www.foulkconsulting.com* Catchpoint Software: https://www.catchpoint.comToday’s show is co-hosted by Brian Brumfield (Foulk Consulting) and Nithyanand Mehta (Catchpoint), backed up with observations from Tim Western in ChatWe face continued interruptions in basic services due to the Cover-19 Pandemic. In this show we cover a few industry patterns* Unemployment Insurance (Government) - We discuss user behaviors on a run on the bank model, the patterns of development and deployment that have lead to failures across states and countries* Grocery Stores - This is a worldwide problem associated with delivery to consumer, especially where populations are under quarantine conditions and it is difficult to book a timeslot for delivery. While the architectural patterns for deployment are varied across the industry, there are some common issues associated with dynamic pages, cart allocation, session and whether the delivery system should be commingled with the cart system.* General Government Information sites - NOCDN, Dynamic Web Pages, Hard Coupling for forms. How can these systems be revised for better performance in a short timeframe. Rather than tackle this at the site construction level we bring in alternatives on the web server front: IIS, Apache, nginx, Lighttpd, Cherokee, GWAN, plus varnish.* https://howmuchtoiletpaper.com/ - It’s the thing everyone wants to know, do I have enough toilet paper to survive the quarantine period? And that is exactly what lead to the demise of the site. While they did do some things well, such as employ a CDN, they also engaged in practices to defeat the CDN benefits. Off the shelf also cost them an optimized performance path.
