In an earlier post, I reported on some figures measuring the then maximum transaction load levels on PINES. Two of those were from the day after Memorial Day in 2007 (that is, May 29, 2007). What happened in 2008 the day after Memorial Day (May 27, 2008)? Well, we have another busy day.
May 29, 2007 May 27, 2008 Total circs 96,326 100,427 per day Maximum circs per hour 11,305 12,227 (11AM-12PM) (11AM-12PM)
This year’s total figure is 4.26% over last year’s.
The busiest minute in 2008 was 331 transactions while last year’s maximum figure was 548â€”although it was a day earlier in the month.
What was the busiest second? Why, I am glad you asked. There were three seconds during the day when 9 items circulated.
