Domestic ticket sales in China are halted after 8 million hits and 200,000 orders per second overwhelm the booking system. By Suzanne Tindal / Published: November 1, 2007 /

Only half an hour after this week's start of second-round ticket sales for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, the online booking system broke down.

In a statement published Tuesday night, the Beijing Olympic Committee said it had decided to temporarily halt domestic ticket sales in the second phase to improve the technical plan.

"Because of the overwhelming volume of page visits, the technical system was unable to perform the tasks well enough, and many applicants were unable to successfully submit their applications," the committee said.

Eight million hits and 200,000 orders per second overwhelmed the technical system, Chinese news site Xinhua reported.

Ticketmaster, which hosts the site, is working on a solution to the deluge.

It's incredible!
200,000 orders per second!!!

One of the official said that the system is capable of allowing one million people to visit their sites every HOUR.

I don't think they know anything about the Internet.

Yeah 200 thousand orders per second? Thats 12 million orders per minute. In 8 minutes they will have almost 100 million orders. Hmmm...anyone believe this 200k orders per second? Because I don't.
