Stress Test Results

Stress Test Results -

Flying Lab Software has announced that they have successfully completed their recent stress test for Pirates of the Burning Sea.  They have posted a report detailing the results of the test.

With the help of the fine folks at FilePlanet and SOE, we just ran our first Pirates of the Burning Sea stress test weekend. The event was an unqualified success. Despite all the painful downtime and very long days, we learned things about our servers that we simply couldn’t have learned any other way. Fortunately the stress testers were good sports the whole weekend and every time the servers came back up the testers were always ready for more.

Starting last Monday, FilePlanet began to distribute stress test keys and to allow people to download the 4GB client installer. Midday on Wednesday, they opened the test to all FilePlanet members (not just subscribers). On Thursday at 3pm Pacific time, SOE activated the keys, and we put up the servers, letting all 15,000 key holders log in for the first time. The response was immediate. Hundreds of people were in and playing within a few minutes. The numbers continued to climb for nearly three hours. Everything with the servers looked really good, and the hardware itself was actually pretty bored.

That’s when everything went horribly, gloriously wrong.
