CEATEC 2021 ONLINE
Access restrictions implemented on October 19th
October 19, 2021
Access to CEATEC 2021 ONLINE was restricted for new admission registrations around the start of the exhibition on October 19, 2021. We would like to express our sincere apologies to all exhibitors and visitors for any inconveniences caused. We report the details of the restrictions, the circumstances and the cause as follows:
■ Date and time of occurrence
October 19, 2021 (Tuesday), 9:15 a.m. to 10:20 a.m. (JST)
■ Restriction details
From around 9:15 a.m. (JST), there was a spike in the number of people accessing CEATEC 2021 ONLINE to register for admission, which caused problems with web page display. To avoid excess load on the server, new admission registration was temporarily suspended at 9:20 a.m. (JST) and access was restricted. During this time, those who had already registered were able to enter the online venue. New admission registration resumed at around 10:20 a.m. (JST) after the online exhibition venue opened, and operations returned to normal.
■ Cause and progress report
The server was overloaded due to a temporary excessive access to the admission registration page before the 10:00 a.m. (JST) opening time. To prioritize stable entry to the online exhibition venue at the opening time, we temporarily suspended new registrations (those who had already registered were able to enter the venue from 10:00 a.m. (JST)). New admission registration resumed at around 10:20 a.m. (JST) and has been operating normally since then.
