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.
