Server outage tomorrow morning

Post by loboLoco » Wed Aug 02, 2017 4:03 pm

We're doing one more server upgrade, and then should be done for a long time, so the WQ website and game accounts will be offline for about 30 minutes, starting at 7am Eastern Time (U.S.) tomorrow morning. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Migration is done, so far everything looks good. Please post here if you notice a problem.

Since the migration, the forums have been running slower than usual. It's not a problem from my own connection as other sites work just fine. Other than that, I haven't been experiencing any other issues.

It seems slower to me as well since the migration.

Same, it was really slow but now it's really fast and working fine.

Yeah, tech support did some stuff with memory last night, seems to have helped a lot. We'll see how it goes this weekend.

I seem to be getting random (though infrequent) slowdowns during which the forum doesn't load at all for 5-15 minutes.

I did experience a fairly lengthy and unfortunate slowdown last night (where I may or may not have posted multiple times consecutively in one thread), but the forums are running more smoothly for me today.

I'm going to echo Kirave & Koa above me; the forums were sluggish late last night and wouldn't load at all (~3am EST), but I figured you may have been doing maintenance.

But now the forum is nice and fast again.

I've noticed that as of late the forums tend to work just fine overall, but there are short timespans where topic pages and topics in general refuse to load. Everything else works just fine, and at a regular speed. I just asked about this on Discord to see if it was just an issue on my end, but it appears to be global - as soon as Kirave got to load a topic, my topic loaded as well. That's about a three minute span of being unable to load any topics. Figured I'd make a note of this here in case there's anything to do about it/it's bothering anyone else.

If it's relevant at all, topics I try to access when this happens do not get marked as "read" either. They tend to do get marked as read when it's just a loading issue on my internet's behalf.

Hmm, I haven't noticed anything, but maybe haven't spent enough time browsing lately. This kind of slowdown is really tricky to investigate, but if you can note the times (UTC) when it happens, I can look into it.
