Server Replacement

Post by laboRHEinz » Thu 14. Jul 2011, 17:31

Hi there!
If things are going well, the server will be replaced tomorrow during daytime. So don't be surprised when you're kicked out without any warnings ;-)
I just made some further efforts to reduce the lag on the new machine.
Let's all cross the fingers that lag will be gone finally ...

Too bad, the new machine wasn't capable of running a full 32P server. The CPU went into overload with 26+ players. I had to cap the maximum players at 24. But no worries, there's a new, more powerful machine on the way. The 32P will be back then.

There's a little chance that the server is going to be replaced today during the afternoon or early tonight. So please don't wonder if there's a downtime today for about 20 minutes.
The new machine runs a Xeon 1270 then, which has about 35% more CPU power compared to the current Xeon 3450. I hope this will be enough to let us have a full 32P again.

Alright, no server replacement today :(
The tracking service shows that it has been delivered successfully, but the guys at the data center didn't receive anything. So the new server machine is lost in nirvana at the moment :?
Maybe next monday then, gonna keep you informed.
Payed extra costs for the so-called express delivery, but well...

GRUMBLE GRUmble grumble ... :roll:

Unfortunately, the courier company is returning the server back to me, saying the address was wrong - well, I'm sure the Frankfurt Stock Exchange place (where the data center is located nearby) is really hard to find LMFAO :evil:
I will have to ship it again then. Patience please...
