Product Description

About the Author

John Allspaw is currently Operations Engineering Manager at Flickr, the popular photo site. He has had extensive experience working with growing web sites since 1999. These include online news magazines (Salon.com, InfoWorld.com, Macworld.com) and social networking sites that experienced extreme growth (Friendster and Flickr). During his time at Friendster, traffic increased 5X. He was responsible for their transition from a couple dozen servers in a failing data center to over 400 machines across two data centers, and the complete redesign of the backing infrastructure. When he joined Flickr, they had 10 servers in a tiny data center in Vancouver; they are now located in multiple data centers across the US. Prior to his web experience, Allspaw worked in modeling and simulation as a mechanical engineer doing car crash simulations for the NHTSA.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's a small paperback but Ullyssian in importance.
A good reference to any questions arising when your business friends do drive-bys at your desk and tell you they've just released something to your site that some coder-in-a-cupboard-you-don't-know-about spent the last week on and uses APIs that may, or may not be under sudden load as a result.
Would highly recommend.

Although it's a bit thin, this book introduces a practical hands on approach to understanding how to measure the capacity of your website and predict how it will respond to future load.

The Art Of Capacity planning is an excellent summary of the subject. It is also very practical, I have tried many of the techniques it recommends and found all of them really useful.
