Getting this server explained...

Good evening.
I've had a lot of people say to me (during the problems last couple days)... "Just put the old server back, it was working so much better".

There is a reason why RoB has to run 3 apache servers now... before the apache server (even though it seemed fine) was running with 90% RAM and 95%  CPU being used. A 5% increase of more players on at the same time would make the server lock up and laaaaaaaaaaaag. This is why we needed new servers.

ReignOfBlood is now powered by this big ass SQL server, and 3 apache servers (one acting as a load balancer). It needed a lot of configuration blah blah to get working correctly. And now I think it's pretty much stable and there shouldnt be any more problems now *touches wood*.

I would like to take the opportunity to apologise for the ups and downs, but these things happen. It frustrates me more than anyone when things are not stable, and I'm happy that they are now.

Lets hope it continues and we can alll enjoy see the site grow.

It's coming to the end of the financial year and i've got a lovely pile of paper work to sort through. Anyone fancy being my secretary?


Some updates to come this week... stay tuned.
Ash

Things seem better now except for that unfortunate blackout, so knock on wood things continue smoothly.

It's like all computer technology. One must be forward thinking to continue to grow. When changes occur, bound to have instability and bugs. Nature of the computer tech beast. However, through work-arounds and diligence, these things eventually get solved. I'll play secretary for cash! However, skirt may be in question. No worries in other words, as it is simply part of growing pains. Growing means going forward!

Thanks a lot Ash... I'm glad to have the site back.. it was hard going without a RoB fix though... ;)

Heres a thought. Get rid of all the level 1 inactives.

There's already an Act. Deletion set up. -.-

Here in the US... touching wood is an.. um... -*very* immature giggle- nevermind.

It's all good in the long run. Fast and sturdy RoB in exchange for a bit of downtime. No big.

If being your securitary got me back in England I'd do it in a heart beat. God, how I miss England, especally the way America is going, ugh.

Legion White Tiger said...

Just a BTW... I think the down occurred after reset and well before the next, no-one lost any VIP days.

All in the name of awesome Ash, no worries. I think we can handle a few days of chaos in return for a better system for RoB ^^ Byyyy theeee waaay, what's the pay for being your Sec?

Always best to have more than not enough.
Not enough causes problems like lagging and viruses to have easier access because there will not be enough memory in the computer's memory banks to support firewalls and what have you.

Thank you Ash! Technology isn't perfect ... after all, it's created by humans! *snickers* As for that position as your secretary ... does that include moving costs? *grins*

SlayerXIII_Boudiccas_Line said...

Thanks Ash for all you do!!! Technology is not perfect by any means ... after all, it's created by humans! *snickers* As for the secretarial position ... does that include relocation costs? *giggling profusely*

Me me me me Ashie baby, I wanna be your secretary, I´ll even let you touch me and sit on your legs for dictation.

But will not shave my legs.

jade dragon said...

Seen Secretary and The pet..and agree TMI on telling us about touching your wood...hhhmm

dylan said...

i would be your secretary ash

Gabriella D. Fidela said...

Thank as always Ash. You are doing a great job. You could be lazy and not give a crap and then where would we be. Tech. is always growing as well as this game, and in order to keep up we must look forward to ups and downs that come with expansion and improvements...those who complain, either don't understand, or they have nothing better to do with their time than to do so. ;)
*thinks* I would gladly apply for the job! *grins and smiles*

sifu black amour said...

damn.... my plan to destroy the server has be foiled. i'll get you next time Ash.. Next time..

Anonymous said...

LMAO In the USA, "touching your wood" in public, could get you locked up as a "Guest" of the proper authorities.

Thanks for keeping us informed Ash, and Kudos for trying to keep RoB running great all so we can feed our blood lust.
