On the Official AuctionAds Blog CTO David Dellanave posted a picture of the hardware that powers AuctionAds and also some stats:

For the month of April we are averaging over 60 million hits per day. Thats roughly:

400 hits/sec at peak times
58 gigs of Javascript per day
134 gigs of HTML per day
16 gigs of RAM cache
1.1 gigs of MySQL (yes, only)

  1. Nice bit of kit you have there, looking at the hardware prices its so much cheaper than UK Dell Kit 🙂

  2. That brings back nightmares of my day job. I’m so glad I don’t have to spend my time messing with that stuff anymore!

  3. Holy Moses that’s some data transfer! Hmm, looks like I take up about a whole 3 seconds worth of Auction Ads resources per day. 🙂

  4. I’m more impressed at the number of diggs!

    (Must be all the mentions of the word “rack” :P)

  5. Yeah, and it probably still won’t run the game “Crysis” when it comes out later on this year 😉

  6. hmmm is it very efficient? by the looks of it, it seems so… any chance on licensing?

  7. That would make for one hell of a home computer. =P I bet it took an insane amount of thought to hook all that up.

  8. Ya, it’s odd what gets digged and what doesn’t… err probably not 😛 tech = digg

  9. Yeah, I can certainly see 1300+ diggers drooling over that machine. (Heck, even I did :P)

  10. I just signed up for auction ads yesterday from an email I received….I will let you know how it works for me jeremy!

  11. I guess from the number of hits once could calculate how many ads the network is serving daily, right?

  12. that would be an interesting spec to hear. I don’t know how you could guess based on the informatyion given, but I don’t see why Jeremy wouldn’t just give that info. I am sure its an insaine number as well.

  13. You know… we don’t do anywhere near that much traffic and our hardware isn’t that much different. I think I went overkill making sure we didn’t have any downtime. Better too much than too little, though. 😀

  14. I’m actually not surprised.. I mean they are serving ad’s to 10,000+ websites.. That being said it certainly puts my own bandwidth useage to shame 🙁

  15. Ya it’s impressive but don’t forget it’s just hits, I would be curious to see how many individual people auctionads reaches every day though

  16. More then likely he wasn’t joking… Auctionads must be like printing your own money

  17. In some cases it can be bad but for the most part I think we’d all be better off if some global stats were published by the big networks, like I don’t see the problem with letting publishers know the percentage paid out on a click or action or for that matter what a sites CTR or CPM is..

  18. how much will that set you back?

    yeah btw misleading title! haha … linkbait alert!!

  19. Good to see the auctionads blog is taking off too. Seems that area is getting a ton of traffic too.

  20. Wow, that is some pretty impressive hardware! I’m really stunned at how little mysql bandwidth there is!
