IRCTC Server Capacity Doubled
This has raised the booking capacity to over 14,000 tickets per minute from the existing 7,200. The capacity augmentation has been done as an immediate step to cater to the summer-time demand for tatkal tickets per IRCTC.
The two HP Itanium servers have now helped raise the capacity of concurrent connections to 3,00,000, while the facility for enquiries has trebled to 3,000 per minute. Logging in on the IRCTC's website has become smoother and more efficient."
Thanks to all those who highlighted these issues via Make Railways Better community. If further website issues are faced while booking regular or Tatkal issues, please share with as much details. more
Moreover don't understand why so many CAPTCHA codes required, during login, before updating payment details, before making payment etc. Why not one code during login is not enough???
Is IRCTC website is that unsecured??? Since login is HTTPS (secure) rethink of having multiple CAPTCHA. This plus cumbersome codes adding more complex and literally making impossible to book any tatkal ticket through website. more
