Unexpected downtime

Hey everyone, We are currently experiencing some technical troubles involving routing and networking and have been working with our provider to diagnose the issue (specifically packet and arp mapping issue). I apologize for the downtime and we’ll get the grid back online as soon as we can resolve the issue.

INI and code changes Aug 21

Hey everyone, Just a quick note to keep everyone up to date with current changes to OpenSim and our configuration files for OSgrid.

Megaregions have been removed from core OpenSim and will no longer function on latest code base.  This was enabled with the CombineContigousRegions option in the OpenSim.ini and this option has now been removed!

If you are running a Megaregion configuration and are planning to update you will have to make sure you have vaild backups of your regions and reload this all back to a Varregion.

Grid Maintenance

Hey everyone!

Most of you have probably noticed and possibly been affected by recent outages in services. We are working on getting these issues resolved and getting the grid stable.

This week (aug 1) we will start running diagnostics on the servers to make sure there are no problems with hardware as well as some configuration changes to the cluster to achieve this. This is our top priority right now and your patience is very appreciated.

Most of this should not cause any interruption in services but some of it will require downtime and when we get to that point we’ll be giving advanced notice with date and times, as well as any eta when possible to help make this happen as smooth as possible.

I apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

Grid status, expected action and timeline

Well by now most of you have noticed the grid is down and the issue has not been resolved as quickly as I had originally hoped. The issue we have is with the cluster and it has booted into a state I am unfamiliar with and rather risk data in an attempt to resolve an unfamiliar issue we have asked for assistance in this situation from Melanie Thielker.

Unfortunately Melanie is in the process of moving, and has not had a chance to look at the problem which makes it difficult to set a precise time for resolution. Thanks for your patience and understanding in this matter.

Grid services updated to 0.9.0

Great news to share: grid services now updated to OpenSim 0.9.0. This should fix a lot of the teleport issues and border crossings issues with var regions. Older simulators are still functional with the new services and teleporting between 0.8 and 0.9 simulators has been working well too. If you are running 0.9 and have run across any bugs please open a mantis asap with detailed information as well as clear method to reproduce.
