“ When the map went live yesterday, the response was astounding, with the number of requests to the website averaging more than 1,000 per second! Below is just a short list of the metrics we observed on our first day;
Total hits yesterday: 158,123,884
Hits served by cache: 141,068,348 (89.21%)
Total Bytes Transferred: 863GB
Peak Requests per Second: 8,970
Average Requests per Second: 1,095
Visits in the first 10 hours: over 500,000
This phenomenal response shows that the investment of time, energy, and — not least of all — Congressional funds were well worth it. The National Broadband Map clearly has a market of interest, and we’re extremely proud to see that market being well served.”
