Blogrolling Cache Update

If you're not a Blogrolling.com user this information is of no interest...

One of the benefits of the Blogrolling caching solution used at Wizbang (and available for your own use) is that I have a log of all of the times Blogrolling servers have been unreachable - for whatever reason. I was curious about the outages so I had a look at the logs. Here they are (edited for extraneous information) for the last month and a half:

[28-May-2004 06:33:09] Blogrolling Down
[28-May-2004 06:46:34] Blogrolling Up

[30-May-2004 03:20:10] Blogrolling Down
[30-May-2004 03:28:09] Blogrolling Up

[04-Jun-2004 07:48:09] Blogrolling Down
[04-Jun-2004 08:08:09] Blogrolling Up

[23-Jun-2004 06:28:09] Blogrolling Down
[23-Jun-2004 06:38:09] Blogrolling Up

[09-Jul-2004 06:33:09] Blogrolling Down
[09-Jul-2004 11:30:04] Blogrolling Up

That July 9th outage was a humdinger so I did calculations with and without that outage. All told it's about 6 hours of downtime (or unreachability) out of 1080 hours (24 hours x 45 days), or an uptime of 99.3%. If you remove the July 9th outage the reliability increases to 99.9%.

Either way you owe it to yourself to be protected from slow loading pages by implementing the Blogrolling.com caching system.

That's so cool that you did... (Below threshold)

That's so cool that you did calculations. As a data analyst at heart, I think I love you. :) Seriously though, that's incredible reliability. It just doesn't feel like that when it's down. Thanks for the info on the caching system, again.
