If you are preparing for peak load on your system you might be interested in this story from one of our eCommerce clients. Their site went down 7 times during last year's holiday season. They identified that the load balancer was configured incorrectly which resulted in a cascading effect on their application causing all app servers to crash. Recovery of the system was up to five hours each time the site went down. They shared this story at a recent application performance conference and I thought to share it with you
