  • Note that a site with a quarter billion page views will not typically experience a nice, convenient traffic flow of 95 sustained hits/sec. It’s more likely to be 10 hits/sec a lot of the time and 600 hits/sec at certain times (e.g. for a sports site, maybe right after important matches), averaging out to 95 hits/sec.

    Web traffic is often very bursty.

    But even that hardly affects the point in question. Most people can only dream of having scalability problems.
