The Software Center broke its old bandwidth usage record last month — 1.424 Terabytes of data flowed from it out to the rest of the Internet ether.
That's a pretty impressive number considering it is just a single Apache server. A single Apache server that doesn't even do the Software Center full time. Most of the time, it's busy with its-services.case.edu (amongst others, too). Unbelievable. That's a pretty rock-solid web server.
The biggest day seemed to be November 28th, which was the Sunday after Thanksgiving. That seems a little weird, but I guess when you need your software, you need it.
The top software downloads for November:
- Microsoft Office 2003 for Windows
- Matlab 14 for Windows
- Adobe Acrobat 6 Professional for Windows
- Microsoft Office 2004 for the Mac
- Matlab 14 for Linux (ed. note: Go Linux! Crackin' the top 5!)
