Upcoming Host maintenance

Upcoming Host maintenance

Just a heads up, Our host will be doing some maintenance on routers 1/17 and 1/18 around 11 pm Central Time to 2 am Central Time may cause brief periods of connectivity loss or increased latency for some

“One of our upstream providers will be performing maintenance on one of its routers between 10 pm CST and 1 am CST, starting on 1/17 and again starting on 1/18. This maintenance may cause brief periods of connectivity loss or increased latency for some clients to your service.”

The Hidden Source and DODS Server’s are gone.

The Hidden Source and DODS Server’s are gone.

The Hidden Source and Day Of Defeat Source, Just in case you were looking for those servers I have Removed them to make more room for our Rust server.  Both of those servers were pretty dead anyway.
So that made room to upgrade the Rust server. We went from 50pop to 250pop and stopped the Random reboots of the Rust server.

And sorry for the Last unscheduled Wipe of the Rust server last month, I and my host tried to fix the problem but we were forced to wipe the server and start over.
Hopefully, we will not run into that again.

Rust Update No Oxide until we get a fix

Rust Update No Oxide until we get a fix

 

Rust server updated, But with Oxide installed it will not start. So until we get a fix we will have to run without. Decay will be in effect so Make sure your Cupboards have what they need to keep your base from decaying. Sorry, I tried 5 times to get it to run.

Update: This sucks but I have been trying to figure out why oxide will not let server start with the help of my host and we can not figure it out.
So we will have to do a Wipe of the server reinstall all as new and start over. Sorry

 

Update: Plugins have been installed and the server is back to normal. But let me know if I have forgotten something

 

 

 

Rust Server still being restarted due to High Memory use.

Rust Server still being restarted due to High Memory use.

Still getting multiple server restarts due to high memory usage. So now I have removed all except for one plugin and that one is No decay.  I will start putting them back in one at a time during the next few days if the server is not being restarted.  I’m also wondering if our corrupt map that we have since the last wipe maybe that’s whats causing the high memory usage I’m not sure.

Thursday is the next wipe and I will be home when the wipe happens and I will be able to check out the map to make sure we don’t get a corrupt map again.

Sorry for all the trouble this month.

 

UPDATE:: I think we have it fixed. We had to upgrade from 50 max players to 250 and that boosted up my max memory usage to 8500 MB so we should not get any reboots for going over 3500MB

We will have some server downtime 11-30-17

We will have some server downtime 11-30-17

Hi All, we will have some server downtime on 11-30-17 due to Host Hardware being moved to New cabinets. This will happen in this time frame On November 30, between approximately midnight and 10 am CST,

So we could be down a few hours.

Here is the notice from my host.

“Our facilities provider in Chicago, Internap, is requiring that we move several cabinets’ worth of gear in this facility over to new cabinets. We have been planning these moves for the last month and coordinating with Internap to try to make them as smooth as possible. We have done such moves successfully many times in the past.

We have moved other cabinets already, over the course of several mornings (we are doing them early in the morning to minimize customer impact). On November 30, between approximately midnight and 10 am CST, we plan to move the equipment in the cabinet hosting your specific service. This means that you will see your service gracefully shut down at some point during the window (close to the beginning of it), and boot back up later in the window (as soon as we have finished moving all of the gear — at least several hours later).

We will be taking every precaution to be as careful as we can with your hardware. However, there is always the possibility that a hardware problem will be revealed by the move. Because of this, we strongly recommend that you back up any irreplaceable data that you may have stored on the server.

If you require very high levels of uptime and the hours of downtime will cause problems for you on the 30th, please contact us, and we can investigate how we can help, such as by providing a temporary service or moving you to other hardware. (While most of our cabinets in Chicago will need to be moved, a couple will remain in place, and those will only see downtime when our router is migrated this same morning — likely less than 60 minutes.)”

Having an issue with the Rust server restarting multiple times a day

Having an issue with the Rust server restarting multiple times a day

Hello all, Been having an issue with the Rust server using too much memory and being restarted automatically by my host.
I have removed some plugins with no luck finding the cause.
Today the server has restarted around 6 times so now I’m removing RustIO Map to see if it’s the cause. SO if you like using Rustio for the map
Sorry I will try and get it back as soon as I can.

Thinking of Letting a couple servers go.

Thinking of Letting a couple servers go.

I’m thinking of letting a couple servers go because hardly anyone plays on them anymore. The Hidden Source and Day of Defeat Source.  I love The Hidden, But with the last windows 10 update, it’s very hard for me to play. When I play the Hidden now my mouse will randomly aim at the ground or sky or just spin me in circles. Very annoying.

Day of Defeat I also love but rarely play and I only use it for the stats website for The Hidden. So I think I will remove both of them, And maybe look for something else to install.
If you have any suggestions of what game to have a server for leave it in the comments.

It’s really hard for me to delete The Hidden lol Lots of fun memories on that server.  Had that server running since 2013 and SeaNanners made a video on the server

I’m thinking of trying out a Vanilla Rust server to see if does any better then the Modded Rust Server. I see you can have Oxide installed with only admin tools and it can stay in the Community tab.

Rust Server Plugin Update-

Rust Server Plugin Update-

Hello, all

I have added and removed some plugins. on the Plugin I removed was Remover Tool.  It was brought to my attention that some things could be done using this tool which could ruin the game and make people leave the server. Sorry I love having the remover tool But until I can figure out a way to use it without the bugs it will be gone. I have added a Player reporting plugin That when you are killed, It puts 3 buttons on your death screen that lets you report the player that killed you If you think Hacks hacks were involved or they were playing with more than 3 to a group.

The reporting plugin is installed now, If you have any problems with the plugin let me know. The reports are sent to Madman Gaming Discord server channel Rust-Reports that only I can enter.

Please don’t abuse the report Buttons.
