And what if the site is busy, the page won't load properly and Refresh is hit? Is it a hit each time a page is refreshed, or only when a user initially tries to go to the page?


That's another hit, and if you want to refresh your session, that's a hit, and if the site times out on you and you retry, that's another hit... and as the previous poster noted, if you have multiple applets or images on a page, those will all show a "hit" on their servers/load balancers.

If this system is so fragile it goes tits up on "6 million hits" I hope they've done some planning on DOS attacks. Otherwise I could pull out my old Compaq 386 with the 5 1/4 floppy drive and take that bitch down in a couple of hours.

And "hits" aren't the same things as unique visitors, correct?



Correct, and unique visitors are not the same things as actual enrollees.


To wade through the political bull shite you really have to make a distinction between these three categories.

Look for the propagandist to conflate these categories to their advantage.

Floppies! I remember floppies!

Thanks for the clarity. I figured that was the way it worked, but wasn't sure at all.

State officials said the Covered California website got 645,000 hits during the first day of enrollment, far fewer than the 5 million it reported Tuesday.


The problem is there's no accountability so they will continue to lie with no consequences. Whoever released the false information should be fired.
