PRC Nursing Exam Results crash servers

Update: PRC Nursing Board Exam Results for November 2008. Copy latest PRC Board Nursing exam results from the website here .

I’ve been struggling with several crashed servers early this evening from what could have been a massive amount of traffic coming in from search engines looking for the 2007 PRC Nursing Exams Results.

Even blog tracking by PinoyTopBlogs caused my server to crash. I can only imagine the number of blogs being swarmed by nursing examinees looking for the results online. All that traffic combined being tracked by PTB killed mySQL and Apache instantly. I can’t even revive it because every time we do a hard reboot, the server is trashed again before I can connect and make some preventive measures. This is like getting Dugg, Slashdotted, Farked, StumbledUpon and hitting Reddit all at the same time.

Traffic is so huge even Inquirer.net had to revert to their lite version (and on several occasions, have actually crashed the site as well). That’s your 80,000 nursing graduates going online and poring over the passers list. Hopefully, it should subside by midnight.

    You can’t kill apache and mysql with 80,000 users. :) Maybe 80,000 + 10 friends assuming they all hit your servers at the same time.

    Web caching anyone?

    oops… that should have been how soon did the PRC’s server crashed…

  15. Avatar for jun jun says:

    Relatives from the province asked me to check some names last night. I couldn’t find a listing that was up. can anybody confirm if PRC’s servers’ crashed?

    There are lessons to be learned here. And opportunities too.

    Like, maybe PRC can get the emails of the takers and just send them the PDF file, cc the media or anyone who wishes to receive the results, maybe preventing crashing. And with a captive (or captured) audience, the government can use this mailing list for updates, communications and whatever nurses may be interested in.

    Yeah, my cousin who has a nursing grad friend, asked me to check on the results.

    Every site I visited (even inquirer and manila bulletin), crashed.

    The only one left standing are those hosted by blogspot.
