- The Stack That Helped Medium Drive 2.6 Millennia of Reading Time — Medium Engineering — Medium
Interesting rundown of the tech behind Medium, interestingly it looks like they only do about ~1m page views per day (assuming ~1 page view per unique user which seems like what the average would be). Interesting to note the use of ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana), which is the second time I’ve heard that recently.

Really cool next level analysis on database performance issues, ie: tools (New Relic for instance) these days make it easy to figure out if you have a slow query or a set of queries against a specific table that are slow… but in certain cases (and I’ve been there) you have 2% of the set of queries against a specific table that are accessing a 98% of the table, which causes huge perf issues.
