Load Test this Friday (16th October 2009) – 1PM PST in Wright Plaza

This is a quick reminder, we will be doing another load test this Friday, at 1PM PST in Wright Plaza. Want to convert this into your local timezone? Click here.

If previous events are to be judged, we will need between 30 and 60 minutes of you, and ideally your friends time. Please bring as many people as you can – if they are not experienced with OpenSim/OSgrid, I suggest recommending the Meerkat Viewer which has excellent cross-grid support.

Our target goal for this week is for 150 concurrent users (we hit 85 last week targetting 100) – these tests really help improve OpenSim stability as many of you may have noticed in the last two weeks. This week may be slightly less stable than last week – but we wont know for certain until we get a chance to try it out. We really would like to try hit 150 concurrent users, so if you have any groups which whom you can share the message with – we’d be appreciative.

Disaster will likely strike, so this week we’ll be a little more careful about handling LBSA as a fallback (last week LBSA froze due to the traffic when Wright was shut down.), if you are able – logging into our IRC channel on freenode (#osgrid) during the test will let us communicate with users who are disconnected or frozen.

Thanks for your assistance & support!

    Hi Guys,
    I really do not understand a loadtest at this point.
    1.Logging into OSgrid is a disaster last few days (1 out of 4). Starting at unintended very high altitude or stuck at coordinate 0,0. Staying alive also was never this much trouble ever in OSgrid. Or am I the only one with this much trouble?

    2.Also I found that changing water and ground-texture heights messes the number in the last version(v0.6.8.0178387) and not in version(v0.6.6.25e7697) Reading articles from the past this could be a european decimal problem what is back which makes it harder to reproduce for you guys I guess. BUT please understand this only happens in the last(v0.6.8.0178387) version.

    3. The Meerkat viewer is really not ready yet. I use it sometimes to copy items over from sl but its way way slower and more crashy then the Hippoviewer. well it is at least for me (win2K on an older machine)

    One other thing: I searched but could not find any place where I could post my above findings of the last days. Is there a place to put remarks like above to let the creators know the users experiences after updates?

    Keep up the good work. I love the Opensim and OSgrid initative and your hard work for it.

    Hi Sylvia

    as to your q’s

    1. your not alone :), a lot of things seem a little rougher

    2. i don’t know, sorry

    3. i have been trying out the release candidate of meerkat, really is pretty stable now, the production version i had probs with also.

    one other thing: the forums have good response to posts, regarding lots of topics, just look under social menu on main page. 🙂

    patiently being patient

    take care all

    I did not understand what is going on in the last 2 weeks with developing.
    All Grids have the Problems that Sylvia tells.
    Writing Mantis has no effect, no one of the develpoper ar interested in.
    Loadtest are the last what is needed at the moment.
    On our Grid we go back to a version of the 06.Oct.2009.
    Is it possible that the commercial interests of IBM are growing in the developer comunity?
    Why else are loadtests needed for now?
    The most question my residents ask me, “didn’t they test there Version before they put it into GIT repository?”.
    I have no answer for this. A very disapointed Hallow…..
