  • Atrocious Lag

    Not sure how many people experienced this last night around 915-1000 PM EST, but lag was seriously delaying a group of us.

    - People following the leader were getting dropped
    - Weapon attacks weren't registering
    - The group, when it followed successfully, would actually lag behind a pace, sometimes showing "So and so arrives following player" when you arrived at your destination
    -Long delays in talking, whispering, etc
    Nothing much to say.

    I noticed it last night leading up to the event. Whoever was setting that up was killing us with lag.

      Opps! Meant tonight, 17 June. But yes, last night too.
      Nothing much to say.

          The following problems have been happening for 2-3 days now. It's been @reported by a couple of us, so hopefully they can find out what's wrong.

              I've posted an update in the Admin thread.

              In short, I've done what I can to allow some system-intensive processes to take short cuts so that they may run as smoothly as possible tonight, and I've updated Shannon on all data I've managed to collect on our recent lag. I've given him and the other staff my hypotheses on causes, probable sources and effects. I'm going to bed now.

                You rock.

                Plus, when the poor over-worked hard drives get some much-needed attention, and everyone notices how much faster TEC is, your hard work will keep on working - and help the next time someone sneezes in the server room too

                P.S. Don't sneeze in the server room.

                    Did the game freeze everyone out or is it just me?
                    No time for this - there are artifacts to find!

                      Nope. Seems the game is down.

                      Edit: After about 10 minutes not being able to connect, seems she's back up.

                          The hamster spinning the wheel to run the server died of a massive heart attack as of 15 minutes ago. Pity, that's the third hamster this week.

                            The sticky note that was on Tale's Big Red Button that says "Do not press this button" fell off. I pressed the button. Sorry guys. We're back flying again.

                              If I had to deal with that machine noise, I'd be screaming at the servers too.
