my home realm has climbed back up from low levels into middle level population between Saturday and Today instead of about 400 Alliance online I am seeing 1300 online.

My realm was so populated it died a few mins before launch and didn't get online till over 2 hours later... sigh :p First census run has taken over 1 hour, and this at 2-3am... think it'll be quite busy for a few days!

[22:20:47]Census+ Finished Taking data. Found 5035 new characters and saw 17816. Took 4 Hr 14 Min.


Erm... what?? Shocked Shocked Shocked I honestly thought the server cap was around 8-9k, never seen higher than 8.5k on a single census before (my realm is 95% Horde so it'll be most of the online pop), now yeah with people logging in and out while the run progresses it'll go up a bit over the cap but 17k? Wow. And 4 hours for a single run, that is just insane...

Edit: well...

Yeah, if it updated 8.7k and found 1k new, 17k seen isn't that implausible. Yes that upload was (or should be) just the one run, maybe with a few from a partial run in it but basically, just that one 4 hour census. Oh and I forgot to mention the 3.5k queue to even log in...

I also perceive what appears to be a slow down in the servers response to /who requests.
Unfortunately that is something I can not fix.

You don't really notice it, but now you say it, I can see it takes 8 sec per request. it used to be 7 to 7,5..

it's not much, but with servers like Draenor, it accumulates into a LOT of time..

Yeah, I think we might be through the worst of the long census times now; I didn't have to queue to get into the server the last two days, which is progress lol, and only got 14k found on my peak-time census run... still insanely high, but LESS high than a few days back Laughing
