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.

    • I was thinking that Dish could be in a pickle with limited low-band.  But forgot they will have n26. Dish needs to also push carriers to support that band as well. I know that is like 14x14.  With 5G, is that something that Dish will be fully able to utilize?
    • Update: Throughout my time in Ireland, I've been on 4G (LTE) via Global Roaming with no issues. Nothing from Sprint/TMo re upgrading service. Hopefully, no bad surprises on my next bill . . .   Installed new TMo SIM in my daughter's phone while here, and she's had no data whatsoever. I had received mixed responses from TMo folks prior to the trip as to whether that was possible.
    • Went up to Woodbury again and it looks like the Archdiocese and NW Spectrum LLC are hampering T-Mobile's ability to expand beyond 40MHz still. Unlike in NYC, Band 41 is still alive and well on Sprint in Orange County. I was seeing 20MHz of Band 41 on both Sprint and T-Mobile. n41 is still at 40MHz unfortunately with no sign of a second n41 carrier anywhere. 
    • Author kinda doesn't know what they're talking about, as they assumed their speeds were n71-only (it's like they half-read the PCMag article they cite). The speeds they're mentioning are 100% from n71 + n66 SDL, which also explains speeds dropping off a cliff when they walk indoors. In fact, Dish has some paired AWS-3 in Spokane, albeit just 5x5, so I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't bothered deploying that and are just doing 71 + n66 SDL (the former at 5x5). May head down to San Marcos and New Braunfels tonight to do some testing. I expect either n71-only or n71 + SDL, not sure which. n71 is 5x5 here as Dish has leased half of their 10x10 to T-Mobile. When that lease expires they'll be at 10x10, and they could get another 10 MHz FD (albeit not contiguous) from speculators if T-Mobile didn't outbid them. Will be interesting to see who buys what when.
