Amount of users
Answer
1/4/05 9:06 PM
Just being curious:
I noticed that the amount of users online is getting higher and higher. Right now there are 391 :!: , that's the most I've seen here uptill now. But did we hit 400 already and would you notice if we had? Do you keep track of this? And are there limits to these numbers? Like do you have to change the site if there were 500 or 1000 online users all the time?

And these are only the users that logged in recently, how many do you have registered right now?

It IS impressive!
But I suppose I was asleep by that time. Right now, when I noticed it being over 380 I kept on wachting it, to see if it would hit 400, and it went up really fast for a while, but now it's down again to 'normal' emoticon .

Did we hit 400 already?
Yes, as Chef mentioned, it happened yesterday.

Would you notice if we had?
We are like you - see the number in the Who's Online list.

Do you keep track of this?
Some explanations first:
The number in the Who's Online list shows only the people who have logged into the site, or visited a page, or hit "save" in the last half hour. The full session is one hour.

From here it becomes a bit complicated: If a user solves a puzzle and doesn't hit "save" for more than an hour their session expires, but they can still continue solving and will get the record "solved" when they finish the puzzle, because each puzzle-user has a unique session which only the applet sees.

We keep track on the database stress and the CPU usage. For us, 100 solved puzzles in a certain moment has more impact than 400 names. :-)

And are there limits to these numbers?
Oh, yes! Think about your computer... what happens when you open 10 programs at the same time? Does it become slower? Does it crash?

Like do you have to change the site...?
Not the site, the computer (webserver) that runs it. Have a better one or another one, or... :banghead:

And these are only the users that logged in recently, how many do you have registered right now?
We set a goal number, when we reach this number it'll be announced in the news. If you seek for an impressive number look at the solved puzzles. Today the number of solved puzzles is: 18514. :happy2:

emoticon But, the "winner" so far is dreamtheater with 659! Let's watch for a number higher than that!

Keep up with the latest number in "Users Online" as suggested by ildjarn.
