RE: What do you want to see next?
Hey there,

Pat, I never knew you worked for AOL. That is pretty neat.

The first thing I thought of when I saw you put the automated testing in place was the test system capacity. I know a lot of automated tests would put a heavy load on the server.

First, perhaps you could have a limit on the number of tests per time period that can be run from a single domain name. That number could be tweaked over time as more people use the website.

Second, you could have a script to automatically delete hourly data if it is more than 24 hours old. Thus, the trend data for a particular webpage would only show the last 24 hours. Likewise, for daily data, you could automatically delete data after 7 days. For weekly data, data could be deleted after 52 weeks. For Monthly data, you could delete data after 12 months. For yearly data, you could delete it after 10 years. If done this way, a single webpage would never have more than 105 database entries.

Third, you could have it where members have to log in every 60 or 90 days or their trend data would get deleted. This would encourage people to come back to the website.

Fourth, you could have a limit on the number of webpages that track trend data for a particular member. This number could also be tweaked over time.

Fifth, paying for a service would also be a possibility. If you do this though, I think you should have some sort of trial period or maybe even a number of free tests a single IP can do per day. That way you could still reel people in to use the website.

Sincerely,
Travis Walters
