Rust server updated and wiped 9/07/17

Rust server updated and wiped 9/07/17

The Rust server is updated and working. The only thing that’s not working is RustIO Map. Just waiting on that plugin to update.
But everything else works fine.

VDS upgrade

VDS upgrade

 

Update::  The old map is back…  Backed up from last night so maybe a little setback. Better than starting over.

Hey, I looked into upgrading my VDS server to a more powerful server and I contacted my host and asked if this would wipe my Rust server and they said there would be no data loss on the upgrade. So I went ahead and upgraded my VDS from 4 core to 6 core.  And Umm yeah it wiped the map.

I now have a ticket in support to see if they can fix it for us.  If it cannot be fixed I’m sorry.
On the other hand, we do have a better Server.

Update:: This really sucks 🙁  So far we have restored from a backup with no luck.  I don’t think we will get it back.

The support ticket is still open. I’m hoping maybe the CEO will come in on my ticket he has jumped in on my tickets before and fixed things others
could not fix.

Do to VDS update Reboot. The Rust Map was wiped Sorry

Do to VDS update Reboot. The Rust Map was wiped Sorry

Sorry, Last night there was a Scheduled  VDS Server update that I knew was going to happen and I forgot to backup my server files before the update in case something happened. Well, something must have gotten messed up and the result was a map wipe for the Rust server #1 Sorry.

Update: For the person that left me and everyone else messages on the Rust server. I did not wipe the server. The map somehow got corrupt in the VDS update. I woke up to the Map wipe.
And why would I risk losing players that I have with an unscheduled map wipe?

And yes I do play on the servers, I make that clear on the forums here

I play with a none admin account Named Drew I don’t raid and I don’t go actively after people. I farm and build and will defend if someone comes to raid.
Below is a picture of the notification I got for the server update that happened early in the morning at 1:30 am on the 20th that caused our problem.

Most of the people I run into on the server I tell them I’m the Owner and I also told you.  So If you have a problem you can move on.

Rust update not doing to well with our servers :(

Rust update not doing to well with our servers :(

Update: 04/14/17
Everything seems to be working fine now.  But when the servers restart it takes about 15 minutes for you to be able to log back on. Hopefully, that will get better with future updates.

The new Rust update is really wreaking havoc on our servers. I just got this from our host I will post it below. So, for now, the servers are running like crap.. nothing I can do about that. Sorry

Madman,

 

From my Host
Today’s Rust release contains a major change to the way it runs. Every time that each server is started, the game server now re-calculates an AI pathfinding mesh for the entire map, using 100% of every available CPU core for a minimum of several minutes (longer for complicated or large maps). While it is doing this, the server can’t be used and does not respond to queries.

This is wreaking havoc on our systems by completely destroying the performance of machines. In cases where a machine hosts multiple Rust servers, they can take 10s of minutes to start, also leading our systems to think that the servers are not working properly and repeatedly restarting them.

To allow machines to continue to be usable by our systems and other customers, we are temporarily reducing the priority of all Rust servers to be lower than other processes on our machines, until the developer fixes this (either by removing the new code entirely or by modifying it to be much more well-behaved, such as by performing the calculation in a single low-priority background thread). We hope that the developer fixes it ASAP.

Update: We also are noticing that servers are using far more CPU than they did previously, following today’s update (servers that were using 50% of a core are now using 100%). We do not know if this is related to the new AI code, but if it’s not fixed with another update, we will likely have to raise prices to compensate for it.

All in all, this is perhaps the worst update we’ve seen yet in terms of server performance.

Rust update for today 4/06/17 has been canceled

Rust update for today 4/06/17 has been canceled

Looks like the update for Rust today 4/06/17 is not ready so the Update and forced wipe is a no go. As soon as I get the info on when the update is coming out I will post it here.
I was looking forward to this update. Still am lol, I see some servers are still going to wipe today But we will not since we only have a few players and the update when it comes out will be a forced wipe anyway.

Update: They are shooting for next week with the update.

If anyone thinks we should wipe the map please leave a comment. If we wipe now it will wipe again in a week.

Rust Map Wiped… Sorry :(

Rust Map Wiped… Sorry :(

I had to have my VDS shut down for a day, I didn’t have the $$ until today. they said it would be saved for a few days so when I started my VDS back up my servers would be the same as when they stopped.

But it looks like the Rust map wiped. I tried to restore. But still new map. The old map must have gotten corrupt and could not be restored.

Sorry 🙁

What plugins do you suggest for Rust Servers? Also This is Update/Wipe Day

What plugins do you suggest for Rust Servers? Also This is Update/Wipe Day

Hello all, I don’t want to add a lot of plugins to the servers, But I’m just wondering what plugins some of our players would like to have added? If you would just leave comments on this post of what you would like to have added or even taken away.

Also, The Rust Servers will update and wipe sometime today 01/05/17 with some big updates… Can’t wait to see 🙂

Thanks
