Server Rollback

Post by Ariley on 12/19/2011, 1:57 am

Yeah, I know, this is never a title you want to see...

Just to fill you all in - around 1 AM EST, we noticed that mobs were rarely spawning, if at all, and the server time was moving at something close to a crawl speed.

I had suspicions that the server time clock itself might be slowing down, and that processes going on in the background of the server (i.e. spawning, time, chunk saving, etc) might not be happening at the normal rate. The lag probably wasn't bad, because ping has very little to do with what speed the background server processes are going at.

Turns out I was right, and the chunk save queue when I initiated the restart sequence was around 32,000. And, all of a sudden, about halfway through the save, the server died a little. I think this was the most it had ever attempted to save at once, and it just sort of... shut itself off halfway through the save, and the CMD window closed on its own. Essentially, a small crash.

What this means is... around half the chunks of the server rolled back somewhere between 10-20 hours. We don't know exactly how much. But you might find that half of your house, or your farm, or your whatever, is rolled back a day.

At this point, all I can say is... I'm terribly sorry. I'm still investigating as to WHY the internal server processes were going at such a slow rate - not quite sure at the moment. But I will do everything I possibly can to make sure this doesn't happen again. I know it's sure to piss a lot of you off, and again, I'm sorry.

I very much appreciate the fact that you all play here, and I love you all for that. If you have any questions about anything, don't hesitate to contact me via a PM.

Thanks.

You shouldn't be sorry for a rollback.
People must accept it. It is a way to make the server run better DOH.
