In world today in Second Life we keep getting repeated ‘blue cards’ informing us that Linden Lab is experiencing trouble. They are saying it appears to be heavy load on the servers, followed by they are having trouble with the data servers.
What Linden Labs is was not saying is there are 27,320 people online at that time.
It seems obvious that Second Life is not scaling well to those kind of numbers. Maybe when they finish getting the the second location set up down in Texas some of the load will get divided and an improvement will be seen.
With the way Second Life has been performing lately, when over 20,000 people are using the system, it is a wonder if any of the new people stay around for a week much less 30 days!
ok, I slide my soapbox back under the bed.
