Two years ago, on July 10, 2010, operations of the IMSLP-EU server were officially announced on these forums. Here are some actuals about the use of the IMSLP-EU server during its first two years of operations:
- Total uptime: 99.96%
- Number of files downloaded: about 3,700,000
- Number of files present on the server: more than 2800
New elements introduced during the last year:
- added a download speed monitoring system. Every 15 minutes a test file is automatically downloaded from a remote location. The time to download the file is monitored and statistics are produced. This is supposed to identify possible server overload conditions that may suggest to distribute traffic on multiple servers in the future;
- added a backup/disaster recovery server in another EU country, daily aligned to the main server. Should any problem occur with the main server, the second server may replace the main one or receive a quota of the overall traffic.
Many thanks to all IMSLP users who supported IMSLP-EU operations and the above improvements with their donations.
