Why wikiprice is often down

Recently we had some issues with wikiprice. It goes down almost once per day, and often the collection "resets" - and it takes 1 hours to fully populate again.

This is because we are getting a lot of traffic and a lot of visits. We had 1.000 unique visitors per day last month, and now are at 1.500. Our database used to store 8 million cards, now we are at 13 millions. It's an incredible success that brings us new and different problems, such as the computational resources of the server and the speed of the queries on the database.

We are solving these problems and soon as possible wikiprice will be stable again, for now we thank you for the patience

  1. how many of those visitors are "hitting" the server 24 hours a day?
