Forums News & Updates SERVER UPGRADE COMPLETE!

Admin — He/Him Posted 4 months ago ( 2020/08/1 03:46:41 )
Previous Update:
Hi Everyone,
We are aware of the lag, I totally understand it's a bummer!
I have looked into upgrading our host plan to double our CPU and RAM (which is not an issue for our funds).
In order to make this upgrade possible I have to take the proper precautions and back up site files (which will take some time).
There will also be some downtime (if everything runs smoothly, approximately no longer than an hour).
I apologize for not coming to the community sooner with this update as plans have not been set for the upgrade and once those plans were in place we would release them as so with adequate notice.

Previous Update:
UPDATE AUGUST 1ST 5:30 PM VOLTRA TIME:
Please plan for the website to be unavailable tonight at 9 PM Voltra Time (refer to the clock on the homepage).
We will be updating our host package which requires the server to be shut down. Expected downtime is 1 hour or less.
You can stay in touch with one another and follow staff updates on our discord server during that time.

UPDATE AUGUST 1ST 9:45 PM VOLTRA TIME:
Good news! The upgrade to our website server went smoothly! We have doubled our available CPU and RAM. Allowing the website to execute requests and connections that much faster. You may still encounter some lag due to high traffic, but it shouldn't negatively impact your experience nearly as much as prior to the update.

Here are some graphs to visualize what this upgrade improved with connections and lag time.
Before:


After:


We will continue to monitor the situation and community feedback during this time. Thank you!

So that means the lag should be fixed after this? That would be wonderful and will help our growth as a site.

Thanks for the update!

I'm not surprised that the lag happened.
I think this is the busiest we've ever been!
I don't mind it, because it just shows how big voltra has grown!
