Default Humorous...

So I had a channel stopped because I was testing it just before a 4-day Thanksgiving weekend.

I was surprised to come into work this morning and see that there were 20,000 received messages with 40,000 sent out.

Not too big of a deal because I was reading and writing test files from/to sserver folders. Still added up to over 300 MB on the drive.

I assumed the server was restarted at some point over the weekend.

Had to share. Thanks for listening.

At least now you've load tested your channel.

I accidentally load tested my channel a few weeks when I created a bug in the downstream script that caused it to silently reject ~97% of the data sent to it. Realized after a full week that the volume was down to 3% of its usual levels, and went back and reprocessed all the messed up messages. I now have pretty exact data on CPU usage and know exactly how quickly we can get through it. Seems max capacity is approximately 12x normal capacity - seems we should be good for quite a while then....

I've spent about 4 hours over the past 3 days trying to figure out why a field in a custom segment wasn't being passed to my SQL query, causing an error.

I use a split function and step through each element of the array. Its not uncommon for some of these to be blank (which I coded for...sort of).

I tried every string manipulation trick I knew....

I realized a short time ago that in my test message the first index of the array would be blank and this was my code.....see why it didn't work?

for each (line in ArrDocs) {

  if (line = '') {continue}

  //other stuff

...sometimes I could just smack myself in the head
I can be reached through gmail and Google Talk using davidrothbauer at gmail dot com

Test all my code suggestions prior to implementation
