    Where are you getting 10,000?

    Chao testified that the sytem tested at 48,000 to 58,000 concurrent users.

    The smaller number of 1,100 was the testing of a subset of the site and not the full site.

    That's the point of the letter.  I think -- unless I'm missing something?

      That is a decent number of concurrent users.  After all we are not building Ebay or Amazon.com.  

      My point was that Issa makes it sound like the web site was designed to sign up 1000 users and that is all.  He does not get the concept of concurrency or is just purposely distorting it.

      The test environment was not the production environment, and the testimony shows that the idea was to use a test environment scaled to some percentage of the capacity of the production environment, and then extrapolate the numbers.

      I think this would be a great opportunity to paint Issa as a man too old and behind the times to understand today's technology, much less be in charge of any of it.
