Nailed down why our apple API lookup failure rate has been so high lately. At the end of each day each front-end server looks at it's logs and runs through all of the calls to the "byitunesid" endpoints and collects all of the failures. We take that list of misses and call the apple API to resolve them all into feedUrls.

A few of the new podcast apps that started using us early last week are requesting tons of iTunesU and RadioFrance id's every day...

...and since we have very few missing itunes id's now, the ratio just skews all the way to the failures.


@dave Any idea which user base are heavy French listeners?

@adam Not sure yet. I’m changing the log collector to give a better idea of where things come from. Been a lot of that this past week - trying to nail down what is going on.
