I wonder how they tested the new system - not? Based on the old Metalink visitor statistics, they should have a good guess at the number of logins and concurrent transactions to expect, no? After all, there are currently tons of tools on the market to stress and load-test web applications before they got released into production, no? Or maybe the database backend of MOS isn't Oracle anymore? Maybe it's MySQL??
