Massive server lag

Post by MissEvelyn » Fri Mar 09, 2018 2:29 am

Over the last few days I've experienced some serious server lag on the Cities and Planes server. Having tested my own connection, I can assuredly say that it hasn't been on my end.

Am I the only one experiencing this?

Nope not just you. Happened to me last and another today. Server time was around 20h up for the one today. Didn’t last too long though.

Usually when the server numbers reached the top 70+ player mark is when i noticed annoying lag.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one. Are there any plans from the staff team to address this issue?

It would help us if you can post the exact times here when the lag happens, so we can identify the cause. Might be we're running a test server at those times, or handling back-ups. Or doing heavy log searches or MySQL queries. Or it's something in the scripts, but last time the issue was running an extra test server.

Definitely! I'll keep an eye out for when it gets severe again.

This corresponds to the test server being launched. Thanks.

One weird thing that happens on this server (for me) is that it seems everytime an enemy group pops in a dungeon and I see them, my computer stutter-lags for a moment, which is bizarre. I mean, I've played servers with gobs of overrides and haks necessary to play them and they play smooth as silk.

This? A vanilla, basic server? Nope.

That sounds like something on your end, a bit of software incompatibility or some-such.

Could these be interfering? Try removing some of them.

I play in the evenings EDT / EST, and have noticed a fair amount of it as well.

It's a client side video rendering issue.

Certainly not the case, at least for me. My connection with (only) Arelith has been laggy for the last few weeks. This was a shared experience, too, among the few that I was playing with last night as well.

This manifests in delays with inventory loading, abilities and spells being used, as well as other basic actions.

It seems that we are having phi-sets and delays in server resets, too, if that's any indicator.

I know the server provider Arelith uses can have some DNS issues routing to certain locations. I hardly ever experience any latency on Arelith mainly due to my location being so close to the provider or the routing just works properly to my source.

I'm in the same time zone. Lots of lag in the late evenings, 10PM and beyond. It gets really bad around midnight. It's pretty much a daily occurrence lately.

Same timezone and can confirm (or re-confirm).

Server took about 15 seconds to show me my character list and another minute to load the marketplace zone.

More tremendous server lags now?

Whatever you guys are doing, it's nearly always at the same time.
