I was looking forward to having a look at Mint, another new entry into the site monitoring space (along with BlogBeat and MeasureMap). The fact that their demo site (which I'm guessing shows their results for their own site) couldn't handle the 100s of hits per minute it received is pretty disappointing. Here is their spin:
The demo has been temporarily disabled. While Mint can easily handle recording hundreds—if not thousands—of hits a minute, it is not optimized to display data at that rate. Please check back once some of the initial interest has died down.
The heat from the blog space is giving rise to secondary applications, but I'm surprised that these are being rushed out (just as BlogBeat was - still full of glitches) with minimal QA. The beta tag is always convenient, but it is becoming overly used to indicate lack of discipline IMHO.
BTW, no real news on MeasureMap as yet, though there is a picture on flickr...
