Title: Slow Server?
Post by: cmage on June 20, 2012, 03:54:26 AM
I guess this goes here, anyway for the last two new days the game has been ridiculously slow(to the point of almost timing out while page is loading) for about an hour after the new game day. I'm not the only one experiencing this apparently, so it's not my computer or internet.

The server is experiencing some problems.
SL, LoB, and both forums have been affected.

Neji will address the matter soon.

All I'd like to know is, what caused the major problem on both forums Neji, and is there a backup?

That's weird I've had almost no problems on this forum.

Look around some of the boards, notice how many members have suddenly deleted their accounts? :/

Seems to me like an automatic deletion of members triggered by blah, and the criteria for deletion being blah...
Title: Re: Slow Server?

Members who have not logged in over a prolonged period of time were deleted. ;)

And Neji has updated us all on the recent server related issues via the MOTD.

@Server

SL/Lob were affected, boards only through that they are on the same host machine, different virtual server.

I'll know more tomorrow.

What's this about 'google doing a lot of crawling' on the MoTD?

Aaaand it's happening again.

Well, time for Kitty to troll people even harder now.  :twisted:

See, all is still well.

So I'm not entirely sure if this question was answered and I accidentally skipped over it, but what exactly is making the server slow to a crawl? 

Or is the problem unidentified?
Title: Re: Slow Server?
Post by: Asadi on June 21, 2012, 05:12:57 AM
MoTD said something about Google

Slows in the last 24h
気 Neji 2012-06-20 06:08:51
... webserver was very busy - I don't have the full logs in the analysis tools yet - but seems google did a lot of crawling -.-
Title: Re: Slow Server?
Post by: Ace on June 21, 2012, 05:13:33 AM
From what I can infer from the MoTD...
...basically google (or someone/something) has been pinging the server like crazy, to the point where the server cannot handle it.

And of course that something cannot magically "ping" us so much on it's own. That means, it's probably happening again.
Title: Re: Slow Server?
Post by: Asadi on June 21, 2012, 05:18:41 AM
So... since I can't use my turns, can I keep them with the next game day? xD

I was so gonna get oro for the 3rd time today.

Just kidding in all honesty. Though, whatever is killing the server is getting on the nerves rather easily.



As of right now, the site is slow again.

About ten minutes before the new day, everything was running as smooth as normal with a slight slow a minute before the new day.

It always occurs at the same time of day. I basically donated for Kyuubi for no reason. The slows are preventing me from leveling and Kyuubi is just wasting away.

For now, I suggest not logging into SL- until Neji has fully addressed the matter.
You are able to view the MOTD while not being logged to prevent the loss of Kyuubi.

Of course, after this is resolved, you may speak with Neji in regards to your donation.
But, my advice is simply to ensure you are on the safe side.

Post by: Solo Iori on June 22, 2012, 02:03:16 AM
The slow has stopped acting up. All is normal again, for now.

I was right, they do happen at the same time. It just started at six again...... Well, six eighteen.

The lags spikes occur on occasional instances now (like now when I'm making this comment).

Servers are running fine now.
Keep updating this thread, it might help Neji.

It's fluctuating between speeds in between gamedays, as I can see.  :-x
First, it'll be fine for the new game day then perhaps an half hour into it, it will significantly slow down some.
It's bad enough that I even timed out before I could actually log-out correctly on my alternates and today I almost timed-out on Kamui whilst doing my daily rounds.
Title: Re: Slow Server?
Post by: Angra Mainyu on June 23, 2012, 02:43:23 AM
They're acting pretty slow, in my case anyway (at present).

It's fluctuating between speeds in between gamedays, as I can see.  :-x
That seems to be the case for most players, if not every player.

Well, I find it extremely easy to point fingers. Luckily, that's why you're here Kamui, I'm sure you don't mind- your fault! :twisted:

Sure, blame the camel-man. >>;
My thoughts on this is someone is attempting to do a ping flood but is failing at it.
Title: Re: Slow Server?
Post by: KayentaMoenkopi on June 23, 2012, 02:56:50 AM
Wel I am seriously ticked off now.

I got the broken nav things on the log in page. and Now I can't even look at SL. Perhaps on a different browser I can view it. These lags are infuriating. I finally get some time off to play and blamo!
blocked at every angle.

Doesn't wish to give herself black eyes when she is running.

But back on track...

here it is 5+ hours to the next day and I have massive lag once more. I really see no pattern to this issue with respect to time of day.
Title: Re: Slow Server?
Post by: Solo Iori on June 23, 2012, 04:58:28 AM
I'm experiencing a lag as well. It's always a little before the new gameday, and then a little while after the new gameday.
Title: Re: Slow Server?
Post by: Camel on June 25, 2012, 04:55:21 AM
I don't about you guys but I have been experiencing a massive lag for the past hour, took twenty-minutes for the homepage to appear.
Started about two hours after the new game-day.  :cry:
Title: Re: Slow Server?
Post by: Ace on June 25, 2012, 04:57:51 AM
Lags started occurring with me around 35 min ago.

And now I am visioning Neji going back to the drawing board- oh the fun times. :)
Title: Re: Slow Server?
Post by: KayentaMoenkopi on June 25, 2012, 05:03:08 AM
Yeah. I am not even logged in yet...oh wait. yeah, well I have the new day screen finally and it will grind in the background while I check out things here.

It must be terribly bad cause only a handful of people or even on, according to the log in page.

Won't even load any pages now, just re-directs me to this ->

Do you actually think you can get away with this?!
Very clever of you Kamui to have showed us how you have hacked the system, then claiming you've stumbled upon it to rid yourself of any blame.

As we all know, hacking the system is never used as an excuse when problems arise...never (*coughs* you know who you are). >_>;;;;

dang it camel man! you broke it.

yeah, I got that one too. It is much shorter than the one that showed up the other day.

To be blunt, with the continuation of these server lags for the past couple of days, please understand that petitions will not be handled in a timely manner.

Thanks.
Title: Re: Slow Server?
Post by: Ace on June 30, 2012, 03:28:10 AM
Petitions are being handled in a timely manner like usual- thought I give an update. =)

We understand that navs will be broken, and they will be fixed in a timely manner.
Please do not petition with regards to the lag though, try to use the forum in this case this the problem is known and ongoing.

Thanks!

I'd ask for some help (as 1-4 a.m. I am not really up checking out the server).

From my logs, it seems like "normal usage" when I get on, and I see googlebots crawling, but that might only be a part of it.

The database (which went away, as you saw above) was loaded heavily with requests. Now, the question is "why". Normally this is because of a lot of page hits.

I disabled the "access denied kitty", so we are currently without fast-crawling-protection.

Hints that will help me:

* how many users are online
* did the site go slow rapidly?
* is it a specific time? or randomly? in the first case, get the atomic time (incl. time zone) for me to look up stuff, please

Most things would need to be done on my end.

Probably nothing too serious but I'm seeing page slows in the forest(with 29 players on) starting around 8:50pm EST. I usually clock in at about 1/3 of what I'm about to post.
