Co-Lo Stability Problems

Unfortunately, our co-lo had some stability problems Friday morning.

First up, they lost all of their connectivity to the facility that holds all of our games. This took them about 40 minutes to diagnose and a bit longer to restore.

Much more astonishingly, they rebooted all of their machines (which means all of our machines) while they were fixing the problem, with no notice. This probably had minimal repercussions on the SkotOS games (Marrach, Ironclaw, Lazarus, and Lovecraft). There may have been a rollback of an hour or two.

TEC and Grendel's Revenge are more troublesome. TEC will suffer a rollback of 10 hours, to midnight (PT) last night, since the unannounced reboot happened one hour before the next backups. GR suffered a more complete failure. We're being forced to restore the entire machine from its backups, then we'll need to restore the game from the backups stored within that backup. The lineup of dates look promising (which is how we laid them out, 'lo these many years ago), so the hope is that we'll only suffer a 7 hour rollback, to the 3am (PT) game backup, but it's a bit dicey at the moment.

Apologies for the inconvenience; we're now making sure everything is stable, and we're looking into whether our most recent upgrades to TEC will support increasing the backups to every 6 hours.

Edit: The GR problem is proving even more intractable than hoped. As best I can tell, our colo is still having some issues because I can't boot the first restore I made of GR and I can't build a new node either. I expect this will just clear when they get their act together, but in the meantime I'm not able to get GR back online until they fix these problems.

    Certainly a good question.



    I think I just forgot something...

    I'm trying to decide if I want lunch or dinner. That's enough for me right now.

      For the game I enjoy, and the players who don't disgust/disappoint me. For now they still outweigh the negatives.

        *nods* Fair enough.

        What if I told you that your inflammatory posts are one of the major things that disgust and disappoint most other players? Would you stop that to make the game better for everyone else?

            If you'd mentioned that to me a year ago, perhaps.

            Now... I just don't care anymore. If my posts seem so incendiary it'll cause people to react that way towards me... so be it. I won't apologize for putting my point of view out there anymore.

              So it's okay for you to act like a retard but not everybody else? I don't understand.

                I don't see it as me acting like a retard. Honestly, you're no beacon of truth and light and goodness yourself, so why would you be trying to challenge me on this?

                  I disagree. I personally read in the new player files that Marnevel is the official TEC beacon of truth, light, AND goodness.

                    Yesterday I thought these forums couldn't possibly get any worse.


                    I stand corrected.

                      but yea, if not allowing re-rolls benefits me and my char having good stats somehow over others... then it should be illegal.
