Server browser shows outdated status
« on: November 08, 2017, 09:55:07 AM »
Sometimes server browser is just wrong. This problem is relatively new but really annoying. Server may seem to have players but actually it is empty or it may seem to be empty but there actually are players present.

We have alternative ways to check online servers and players:  https://stats.spikx.net/mwll.html

Someone also mentioned a way to check online players by using discord?

Yes, Spooky has a bot in the MWLL discord that can be summoned to show servers and players upon entering a command.
However, it's not been working for the last few days for some reason....

1. The server/player list was in lag all the time, around half a minute or so.
2. I encounered a couple of times too, the in game and Spooky's list differ for a while
3. Server administration issues seem to be more exposed now, since 24/7 usage is constant
4. Maybe we should consider redundant tracking/listing service?
5. Spooky's bot on Discord seems to be undergoing freqent maintainance?
6. Remember: recent player tracking is done on our own expense, strechin our resources even further.

The bot is "unstable". I need to restart it every once in a while due to an obscure issue with the MySQL server. Haven't had the time to improve all that.

The issue with the server browser only seems to affect Funbocks afaik. We haven't figured out yet why that happens.

It's a known bug with my Gamespy replacement service. It stops updating sporadically until restarted. It does so automatically every 12h. I do not want to go lower, as each restart is also causing a window in which the service doesn't work at all.
don't bother sending me PMs, I probably won't be reading them in time.

Neg. Unfortunately I have seen it happen to other servers too.
