High Traffic API with Laravel - 3 million requests a day

Nov 1, 2017 09:11

For the first time ever, I've managed to hit the 3 million requests a day mark for one of my side projects. This project is a set of 3 Android Applications, all communincating to an API that is based on the fantastic Laravel framework.

High Traffic

A lot of people I've spoken to online over at Laracasts tell me that is near impossible to get decent speeds with a Laravel system and that many requests (about 2,000 a minute, 33 a second) but my little system is ticking on well!

I'll be constructing a better wrtite up of the system in the coming weeks, so make sure you return soon 🙂
