So I'm just banging out my intro slides for the MySQL conference. Ya know, the one to whet people's appetites about why they should care about LiveJournal's backend....

I hadn't looked at the logs in a while, but damn it's busy lately:

40-50M hits/day
766 requests/seconds at peak hour.

And those are all dynamic mod_perl requests.... the static files are Akamai.
