Servers Reconfigured

Postby lackattack on Thu Jul 22, 2010 2:08 pm

Due to recent improvements like Improved Army Printing and New "Intensity Cubes" as well as many changes "under the hood", Conquer Club runs much more efficiently than it used to.

Up until recently we had two web servers with a load balancer to split the traffic between them. Since the faster server is now able to handle everything on its own, not much traffic was going to the slower one. So we got rid of the load balancer and now the main website is running entirely on the faster server. We still have the slower server around taking care of email, live chat, the developement site and a few other things.

We experienced some slowdowns on last Thurdsday and this Monday as a result of experiements gone wrong. I'd like to apologize for that - we should have made an announcement once we realized something was wrong. The good news is we learned what not to do from those experiements and the server situation should be very good for a long time to come :)

Cool, to see improvements I like combining with speedups. Let's hope you won't suddenly need that second server for the main site again (unless it's because of a sudden huge increase in players ;) ).

There was a huge lag just recently today no more than 20 minutes ago. Is that due to some server stuff? And it should be fixed now correct?
Anyways great updates.

Good work. We've got some more server updates and reconfigurements to come in the next couple of months as well.

There have been some reports that when a PM arrives announcing a medal, the image is not displayed and instead a message saying "It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image." appears. I can confirm that the same thing happens when I try to preview a PM that I am composing with such an image embedded. A direct load of the image using the URL displays fine. Could this be due to the server reconfiguration?
