RolePlayGateway Downtime

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Remæus on Sat Mar 16, 2019 7:25 pm

Hey everyone, just wanted to give you a quick update on RPG's latest downtime. We're investigating an abnormal surge in traffic volume and intermittent failures in our underlying load-balancing infrastructure. My suspicion is that we're at the limits of our current hardware configuration — I'll let you know as I find more. Thanks for your patience!

tl;dr: we're on it! Updates in this thread as we have them.

It looks like we had a disk failure on our database server, which was causing intermittent slowdowns in our query pipeline — these slowdowns backed up the request queue, bringing the site to a halt on several occasions over the past week.

On Sunday night, we completed a migration of our database to a new disk, and things seem to be returning to normal. Apologies for any inconvenience!

Thanks for the update. I had a feeling something was up and I was hopeful a solution could be found.
