On Wednesday, June 23, 2010 between 0900 and 1500 UTC, Tranquility will be down while we move the cluster. CCP Yokai's new dev blog gives all the details on the move and improvements to the cluster.

By the way, this is Yokai's first dev blog. Some of you may remember him from Fanfest 2008, when he and a pick up team (Bubblegum!) made it all the way to second place in the mining PvP tournament :D

Update: The blog has been updated with the downtime schedule, which is as follows:

0900: All EVE Services go offline. (Web, Forums, Test Servers, EVE Gate, TQ, basically everything hosted in London)
1200: EVE Online web, secure and Test Servers come back online. (all network services reestablished in London. Only TQ should still be down at this time)
1500: TQ back online

IBTC and yay for the blog. Clearly structured and presented in a clear and easy to understand fashion. Bonus points for the pic and the graph.

Are those "extra cold hamsters" there to keep up the motivation of the other, "hot running hamsters" ? Very Happy

Awesome Yokai, thanks for taking the time to do this, the lag doesn't seem as bad as long as your keeping us in the loop as to how your trying to fix it.

Please just don't leave it another 5+ years to do a follow up.

I knew they were going to do something soon, hope this will help quite a bit in our lag free massive pewpew battles. It will surely help a bit.

PICS OR SHENS


Also - good luck. I only had to move a handful of gear during a recent office move (down 2 floors, outside about 100 metres and then up 6 floors) and that was tough enough. Good luck with the epic gear move and do take pics :D

Looks great. See if we can sort some goons out with the new servers :).
Just try to keep use abit more in the loop would be great.

"Just try to keep use abit more in the loop would be great."

That is the plan. There are lots of exciting things brewing in Virtual World Operations right now...

As I mentioned, upcoming blog posts will talk about what we are doing for:

-Remapping EVE
-Next Level Fleet Fights
-Hot Spot Prediction

And yes, the first thing I thought of at the mention of hamsters was Chribba's hamster blankets. XD

I'm really curious to know exactly how the "node" system works. Is it a similar idea to the way VM works, with automated load balancing of virtual servers between hosts, etc? Hopefully you'll talk about it soon.

I'm not a computer specialist but I still made a sticky mess of my pants.
also: in before the whine of "why are they wasting time upgrading the servers while we need Lag solved NAO"
calling it now: someone will come along and seriously suggest this.

As someone who works in a data center and sees moves like this all the time, getting this done in 4 hours will be a HUGE task....that is if they haven't been prepping for this for the past few weeks and the 4 hours of downtime is actually due to copying files

(1x72GB hd? No raid 5? Seems like setting up 15k rpm HDs in raid 5 or raid 10 would help increase the read/write of the SQL database...)

Ehm...

When you place the hamsters back, PLEASE do not forget to feed them or TQ will def stay offline.

Great news to see "our EVE" growing again...

SEXY SEXY PICS! ;)

Software is nice but hardware is the spice!

Seriously though - I have no doubt this new setup and the advanced switches will make a nice dent in the fleet lag problems and "race" conditions. Just a guess.

1x72GB hard disk in each application server... and those have nothing to do with the SQL Server. The EVE server does almost no I/O so disk performance on the application servers is of no concern.

I'm curious. Did you guys consider the Cisco UCS for the blade servers? They've got some interesting capabilities around networking and dynamic provisioning.
