Short Term Optimization
Temporary (1 month) burst of traffic

 8:43 pm on Apr 3, 2005 (gmt 0)


I've got an unusual situation (at least for me!). I've a fairly large website - fairly optimized for speed to begin with. But due to events beyond my control I'm experiencing a huge flood of traffic - and expect that to continue through the end of the month. (To give you an idea - I've had almost as much traffic in the last 3 days as all of last month.) Any suggestions or tips about any additional short term optimizations I could do? (graphics are already at a minimum)

what is the idea, to get the bandwidth down or get more money?

Bandwidth down - its not a commercial site.

FYI, I've already added some pages that gather together the most common info folks are seeking. And I've added links to those pages at the top of the front page.

Have you looked at Coral [coralcdn.org]?

hmm, never heard of it before - I'll do some reading on it
