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.

  • Make Caravan Drover make a Think announcement

    As a newer character I have found that this is basically my only real source of decent income. However, its hard to just wait around for the drover to show up. Could we just have him announce that he is looking for help?

    If you go two paces west, there is a wagon that you can take to RV. The tickets are like 250dish, and you can go pretty much right away, versus waiting. You can buy a return ticket on the other side. FYI people will not auto-follow you onto the wagon, and they only have ten seconds after whomever has the ticket enters the wagon, to also enter, or they'll miss the ride and have to buy their own ticket.

      He's talking about the guard job caravans.

      They show up at a certain time of day IG. Maybe someone else can give you the exact time, but I believe it's around sunrise.

        That makes significantly more sense, thanks! 8)

          It's approximately 7am IG time. You can check the time IG by clicking the "more" tab under Events on the main TEC page.
          This isn't a bakery. We aren't gonna sugar coat sh*t for you.

          Tell a lie often enough and with enough conviction, it will become truth to all who hear, and say, it.
