Anatomy of a Crushing (Pinboard Blog)
Possibly a good postscript story. How Pinboard took Delicious users and then Delicious itself, or something like that.

Pinboard shares a web server with the Bedbug Registry, a kind of public forum for people fighting the pests. I started the registry in 2006 (a whole other story) and it existed in quiet obscurity until the summer of 2010, when bedbugs infested some high-profile retail stores in New York City and every media outlet in the country decided to run a bedbug story at the same time.

The Summer of Bug culminated in a September link from the CNN homepage that drove a comparable volume of traffic (about 45 hits/second) and quickly turned the server to molasses. At that point Peter spent a frantic hour reconfiguring Apache

This meant that our two thousand active users were completely swallowed up within a vast, cathedral-like database server.

There were thousands of new users, and each arrived clutching an export file brimming with precious bookmarks. Within a half hour of the onslaught, I saw that imports were backing up badly, the database was using all available I/O for writes, and the two MySQL slaves were falling steadily behind.

To add spice to the evening, our outbound mail server had now started to crash. Each crash required opening a support ticket and waiting for someone in the datacenter to reboot the machine.

large number of recent arrivals had chosen the first option, which meant that we had a backlog of about two million bookmarks to crawl and index for full-text search. It also meant we had a significant group of new users who had paid extra for a feature they couldn't evaluate.

So that's the story of our big Yahoo adventure - ten million bookmarks, eleven thousand new users, forty-odd refunds, and about a terabyte of newly-crawled data. To everyone who signed up in the thick of things, thank you for your terrific patience, and for being so understanding as we worked to get the site back on its feet.


I think start the whole thing with this story ^
