Lag and Irritation

September 3, 2009 by reacher · Leave a Comment 

As many of you have noticed, and commented on, we are experiencing some pretty brutal lag, and other issues with assets and rezzing in general.

LindenLab is currently working on the servers – implementing a rolling restart slated for next week, in the meantime, we are left to deal with the sluggish grid, poor teleporting, textures not rezzing, unable to log-in, as well as a slew of other issues.

Reach Isles is well aware of the hassle, and knows this leaves aggrevation for our residents, we too are affected.  There are a few ways we keep track – the main one being the status blog directly from SL/LL – you can find information here:   http://status.secondlifegrid.net/ (this is a great resource and saves alot of confusion for SecondLife residents)

What does this mean?  Well, for now, we are all gritting our teeth and hoping things smooth out without too much hassle.  It’s a good thing, honestly, as this means LL is addressing things that need to be handled, meaning, in the grand scheme of things, we are all better off!

As always, one of us is always around, so should you need us – send a page from your HUD, or the office – or simply IM Jori Watler, or Kickikantor Ling directly.

Thanks for your continued support, and your patience.

Slated Rolling Restart from the Grid Status Blog:

Posted by Status Desk on September 1st, 2009 at 05:16 pm PDT

We will be deploying server version 1.30.0 to Second Life during the weeks of September 7th and September 14th. The rolling restart is scheduled to look like the following:
  • Thurs Sept. 10th: 1.30 deploy to pilot regions
  • Weds Sept. 16th: 1.30 deploy to 1/2 of agni
  • Thurs Sept. 17th: 1.30 deploy to 1/2 of agni

As with all of our server deploys, each region will be restarted once during one of the rolling restart periods. Most regions should be down no more than 5-10 minutes, although some fraction of the regions will take 20-30 minutes to upgrade. If your region stays down for more than 30 minutes, please contact support. Each region will receive warnings starting 5 minutes before that region is restarted.
