Overnight site hiccups

Recommended Posts

I know it's been previously mentioned that around 1:20am Eastern the site sometimes goes offline for a few minutes and an error message is displayed. Lately it's been happening far more frequently during the overnight hours. I couldn't get on the site for a few hours tonight, and I am still having problems with certain pages (such as "Content I Follow" and the equivalent screen in Tapatalk). The error message that has been displayed recently is this:

 

"s4gru.com Driver Error

 

There appears to be an error with the database.

If you are seeing this page, it means there was a problem communicating with our database. Sometimes this error is temporary and will go away when you refresh the page. Sometimes the error will need to be fixed by an administrator before the site will become accessible again."

 

I didn't see anyone else mentioning this, so I just wanted to make sure it was getting mentioned.

Been seeing it more lately. But usually is fixed in around 15 minute's.  I've been seeing it more with other sites lately

I am getting the error right now whenever I try to click on any of the sub forums. I was able to get into this thread since it was listed on the front page as a new thread.

The View New Content link in The Forums seems to be the biggest culprit.  Most/all other links are working.

This has been fixed now. IP Board has asked me to limit the number of new notifications for members. Currently it is set to no limit. He suggested capping at 100. They said this is the cause of our problems.

I thought maybe Ericsson had taken over the maint contract here too!  :) :)

If that were the case, the new content would available but blocked for an indefinite period of time.

Whoa, I *JUST* saw this once you pointed it out!  That made my day - I kept wondering if there was a way I could see this!  That link is pretty well hidden up there in that corner...

Thanks Robert! I just noticed that I have thousands of notifications saved.. 313 pages of them going back to March. I can't think of why anyone would need that archive, and I'm sure it's clogging up a database somewhere. I started deleting them page-by-page, but that was a bit tedious.

313 pages? That's a lot of pages of notifications.

I had 33 pages. I never realized that they kept building up like that. Fortunately, it didn't take long to get rid of them. It'd be nice to just do a batch select/delete of all instead of what is on the current page.

I changed the maximum number of notifications this a morning. It should help things out tremendously on the server side. We are now limited to 50 for members, 100 for Sponsors, 200 for Premier Sponsors. I did not change them for staff.

So that means I still need to finish deleting my other 30 pages of notifications? I got rid of 10 already. :(

I think you're exempt as "Staff" -- my 311 pages are suddenly down to 4, which makes sense based on my new limit of 200.

Since i'm not staff, do the notifications inform you of post reporting, i.e. spam, violation of user agreement, etc.?  If not, why not limit staff to 1k?

The small number of staff we have just does not put much burden on the servers. It's the multiplier of members that burdens it greatly.

    • Just mapped at least 8 5G small cells (all 109xxxx gNBs) while driving on the Southern State. They all seem to be n25/n41. I'm pretty sure nearly all of them are upgrades of existing small cells as opposed to new builds but I'm glad to see Crown Castle/T-Mobile hard at work getting midband 5G on all of these. Each of the unpinned gNBs belong to 1-2 small cells. I still can't pin these sites until the Cellmapper devs give us the option to split cells for 5G sites.
    • Their offers have been crap recently, so this is just more evidence to not buy from T-Mobile. 
    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.
