Server Migration - finished

18 posts in this topic

GatheringRO has been successfully migrated to the new server hardware.

The automated update will fail as soon as the old server will shut down.
In that case please use this manual installer to update your patcher, so you can connect to the new server:

>>>  DOWNLOAD NEW PATCHER  <<<

Simply install it at the same location as you did when you've installed GatheringRO itself.
It will simply replace the patcher file with the latest version.

The game is now running on the latest generation of server hardware.
With more CPU power, extended RAM and SSDs.
This reduces data saving and loading times by tremendous bounds.

Update:

I ran into some issues while migrating the player data into the new Database.
The data cannot be migrated as easily as i've been used to, so rather than simply copying all the data it's currently importing it.
There were major changes on the SQL database system which now needs to convert all the data. This is taking way longer than expected.

 

@symbio
We're still using the same hoster at the same physical location.
But it's a major hardware upgrade which brings us extremly more power.

Just thought I would ask.. What are the new hardware specs?  /heh 

I'm not going into detail here since >90% of all players won't know what's good for such a use and get the wrong idea.
But the biggest change to our last server is that we're now using RAID SSD's rather than HDD's.

The fact that Ragnarok is a MMORPG, this means the main bottleneck for such games are the harddisks.
Because it's reading and writing tons of data per second to the SQL database.
That's the biggest performance boost we get.

But we also have a more powerful CPU and more Ram now.

I see.. If possible, can the new hardware specs be posted somewhere for those who are curious and/or interested?

Update:

The import over night failed, so i had to change some configs and re-started the import this morning (several hours ago).
I expected it to be finished by now (lunch) but i'ts still importing the player data.

Over all these years we have gathered an extreme amount of player-account data.
From the progress i can see right now it should be finished in aprox 3 hours.

But i'm working today, which means i will get home in about 4 hours.
I really really hope the import went well this time, so i need to validate the data first before i can re-initialize the game.

If everything goes fine, GatheringRO should be back online in aprox. 5~6hours.

 

I'm really sorry about the long downtime, i've made several server migrations in the past so i thought it wouldn't be any different this time around.
I didn't expect such a huge delay.

Server is now online.

The patching process is currently automated!
As soon as you hit play it should trigger an installer which you have to install.

If it does not patch for you anymore, that means that the old server has been shut down.
So you will have to install this update manually as described in the news!
