rendering process runs 23/7 ... at 2 portraits a second, that's about 82800 portraits rendered a day. Need to render about 600k portraits, so roughly a weeks worth of "catching up"


Wait a second, I don't quite follow.
The only way you'd have to render 600k portraits is if you generate all possible portraits regardless of subscription status and/or character active/deleted flags (if they exist somewhere in the first place).

So you have 150k active subscriber accounts, max 3 characters per account (more like 1.5 on average, but I digress), so maybe 200k portraits that SHOULD be rendered. In TOTAL. Including the ones already rendered. So more like 100k or less portraits that need rendering.

Furthermore, what if you started with portraits that HAVE at least 1 post in the forums first ("!" only first), THEN work your way through the active subscribers without rendered faces, THEN leave the machine running on all the rest.


And why not, make a small check on each post in forum... check for portrait availability (or last update, if older than 1 month) = generate it (again).
I mean, nobody cares if somebody that does NOT post in the forum DOESN'T have the portrait generated... now does it ?

Heck, even more fun: link the generating machine to the image-serving machines. When ANY of those serving machines detect a image timestamp older than 1 month upon image request, they automatically submit a "generation request" to the other machine.


...and so many more solutions that DO NOT involve "mass-dumb-rendering" approaches.


Yes because when those characters come back they don't deserve to have their pictures waiting for them.

Let it go. Your stupid picture will be up in a few days. Get over it.

If it's not fixed by the christmas holidays, I'll most likely get fired.

We've put our efforts in getting this to be the next task on my list and we're geared towards getting this up and running asap.




Sorry to revive this thread - but I assume t20 has been fired?
Sad

EDIT: Oh, where did I get 20'th December from - In my mind I though 20th december - it's christmas holidays ...
Okai t20, fight for your job :D

EDIT2: Does it occur to everyone else that you're not seeing any portraits atm? Is it the broken JPG thingy thats affecting our portraits as well now? (The billboard bug issue).

If the deal was to make the ! disappear, he succeeded.
And the icon is a placeholder for an imagae.
It is not the icon for a broken picture. Wink

We're nerly done!

What's the "good start"? Has anything visible been done? All I've seen for the past year or more are a bunch of promises.

The "good start" is that he removed all most ALL the portraits. Most are just little red Xes now!

Yeah, it's rather odd, now the portrait service is just down for the count completely. I'm guessing hardware is just being torn out and replaced wholesale.

And from Redundancy's blog it sounds like half the art-programming department is imperiled by this problem at this point. Razz

The portraits not loading has been intermittently happening before. I was thinking it's more of the same this time. I'll be glad to find out I'm wrong.
