The 2010 World Cup has created a massive spike in traffic to the sites we measured, as well as other sports, news and social media sites like Twitter.
(PRWEB) June 30, 2010
WatchMouse, a global industry leader in self-service website and application performance monitoring, released a report today that measured the performance and uptime of the websites of the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying teams including the websites of all six football federations, and FIFA.com.
Out of the 38 sites monitored, 10 had 100% uptime including the team sites of Australia, Japan, Côte d’Ivoire, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, United States and Uruguay, as well as the CAF and the UEFA federation sites. Coming in at the bottom of the list were the team sites of England, Mexico and Paraguay. North Korea was not included because they do not have a site. Overall, the 38 sites performed well with 80% of them falling into an acceptable uptime range. Click here to view the full report.
“We recently placed a dedicated monitoring station in Cape Town in order to monitor and test the availability of website traffic emanating from South Africa,” said Mark Pors, CTO and co-founder of WatchMouse. “The 2010 World Cup has created a massive spike in traffic to the sites we measured as well as other sports, news and social media sites like Twitter. What’s not often anticipated is how a website will respond to a foreign IP address. Load times, site availability and general functionality are different based on the geographical location of the web visitor. It’s important to know how your website reacts from a global perspective.”
