Guys..... It wasn't the database. Clearly someone at CCP just tripped over a power cord! Razz


I think someone not only tripped over the power cord, they took the nearby transformer down with it Twisted Evil.

too bad failover didn't kick in (if there is any).
would be interesting to read what exactly happened though.
50k users is not a mass you want to play with up/down.

It appears there is an issue with whatever version of SQL Server CCP is using with the cluster and failovers... uh... fail Rolling Eyes

SQL Server has come a long way and it's a pretty good product, but it is still years behind Oracle in terms of reliability and high availability. Imho.

Microsoft is likely using CCP as a testbed for SQL Server and likely have a team of developers dedicated to it. The thing is Oracle solved these kind issues long time ago and has been proven to deliver in this kind of high demand/high availability environment.

EvE uses the microsoft sql, despite the weekly crash, for 1 reason. Microsoft is helping CCP develop the network / interaction between EvE online and dust 514.

why? Xbox live.

And this is why CCP prefers not to talk about it. The more information they give their customers, the more misinformation is spread.

MySQL is perfect for huge environments like also EVE, especially if you go look into the clustering possibilities.



Yeah, it's super awesome.

I love this part:

"The complete solution with complete transactional relay log
synchronization will probably be implemented in 6.1 to cover the few
remaining situations where the relay log can be incorrect."

Don't worry though. It will probably be implemented in 6.1!

my ship keeps disappearing, stations disappear except for the lights then flash back into existence - is this stuff happening to anyone else right now? This can't be good.

Happened to me too. Try installing new drivers to your graphic card and get the latest directX.

Yep, MySQL all the way! On a different note though, wonder if you need to Defrag on a RAMSAN? Haven't bought one yet but with that much RAM...? Maybe run Memtest through it... only take them a week for the first pass! Laughing
