Saturday (9/5) about 5:00pm, I had an interesting and unexpected surprise, HACKADAY publish a note about my ERB-EspWebServer.
As a result, my Blog and the my ERB-EspWebServer Farm were hammered with Internet requests.
only one Esp8266 Farm Server working (nod169) at the time (others were
offline) the request rate was intense. For the next 16 hours the single
Esp8266 served about 1650 page requests for 1050 unique visitors. When
"choked" with Internet Requests, the Esp successfully rebooted itself
(several times), and I only occasionally had to help with a power-on
The above shows the first 16 hours of the onslaught.
next day about 10:00am the Internet Requests were still coming in, I
had to leave for the day, and therefore had to leave the Esp to its own
fate. It eventually crashed, and therefore it was mostly down for the
next 24 hours.
Once I returned, the Internet Requests started up
again, with a little less intensity. And now, 4 days later, the Esp is
receiving about 10 hits per hour, see current/live stats here. So far, the Esp has handled about 3500 requests.
I added new code to serve a local "Server Farm Photo" which is about
30KB, it can be seen on the current Esp Server Info Page.
This has been a fun and exciting Experiment of Esp Web Server Load Survivability, the Esp8266 did well for itself !!
