Map Update
« on: April 24, 2014, 04:13:27 pm »
All,

Just to advise after about 1hrs time, the map will be viewable on all 4 axis (North, South,East, West)

Updates will then be switched to hourly now we've settled down the initial exploring a bit

Overviewer is 3D only.

But there are plenty of 2D ones I can also setup, doesn't take long at all if theres a demand for it

Personally I have no issue with every 30 mins, but there are some on the server with slower connection/slower gear that lag when it runs, having it done hourly reduces the effect on them

anyone who is autistic enough to spend more than 30 mins on minecraft (everyone on server) would most likely have the means to run it smoothly

I am one of the people with performance problems so I'll explain.

My rig is more than decent enough to have no problem running MC, so that part isn't the problem.

However my internet connection here at the university, to be more precise in the dorm is limited to say at least. The ports minecraft uses are banned so I cannot use the internet service I have here to play. However I have a USB stick mobile internet, but with limited bandwidth, and monthly data limit. When playing on the mobile internet the map update does influence my lag, but it's like less than 1% of the issue. So as for me the update time doesn't really matter if people prefer more frequent update I don't have a problem with that.

p.s.: Any idea if I can somehow go around the port block (port 25565 is blocked)  and use the regular internet to access MC servers? I tried VPN-s but either I failed to set them up, or they didn't solve the problem.

For now I've put it back to half hr updates.

As for the port block, have you tried port 25566? The creative Server is on there at the minute, if you can get on that I can easily move the main server to there.

Another way is to use a free Proxy service (https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=free+proxy+sites&oq=free+proxy&aqs=chrome.3.69i57j0l5.7180j0j7&sourceid=chrome&es_sm=93&ie=UTF-8), but note Uni may not look to well on that if they find out.

I'd prioritise performance over map updates. I know today was an isolated incident, but I mainly use the map to orient myself. Even if it was updated daily it would be fine for my needs and I'd rather not have terribad lag :p

All,

Keep me posted today on how the server is running.

Looking into overviewer it appears that the 4 worlds are all rendered at the sametime! (This is a known issue) This is what likely has led to the mass memory leak.

If it slows down today let me know here as I have good access to the forums, I'll then switch it back to the one map only that is rendered and will look at other options for the 4 way view (run on my home pc once a day and transferred over via ftp so doesnt eat any memory)

All,

Ok presently were just having the one view angle on the map due to memory leakage.

I have found a fix that I can apply via a cron job, that should let us run all 4 angles. But until I get home I cant apply this to the server so will leave at juts one angle till Monday.
