---- Matt Wells interview
takagi - 9:37 am on May 13, 2004 (gmt 0)Currently Gigablast serves half a million queries per dayGigablast can handle about 40 queries per secondHandling 40 queries per second for a whole day would result in handling 3.5 million queries a day. I'm not sure if Gigablast can really handle 40 queries per second for 24 hours, but even at 60% of that peak load it still would be able to handle more than 2 million queries per day. BTW, Gigablast is now searching 321 million pages which is about the maximum on the the 5TB Matt Wells mentioned in the interview.
