  • (rhk) The C10K problem; © 1999-2003; Dan Kegel; updated: 5 June 2003; — "It's time for web servers to handle ten thousand clients simultaneously, don't you think? After all, the web is a big place now."

  • (rhk) Surviving slashdot'ing with a small server; David P. Anderson; ca 29 Aug 2003 — Describing how they use a redundant server to help overcome a slashdotting (and one or more hardware failures) — this article is more about observations on the Slashdot effect (with an exponential decay over time) than about the details of the server or how to set it up. (They promise (hint?) at something like a howto in the future.) The servers use Linux Virtual Server technology and the Linux High Availability utilities (links available in the article).

  • (rhk) The Slashdot Effect: An Analysis of Three Internet Publications; Stephen Adler; ca 29 Aug 2003 — Maybe slightly OT, but another article on the Slashdot effect.
