Server Woes...

So for the past month or so the server has decided to freeze up randomly, usually in the middle of the night (and it's the entire machine, not just the game server). I have been struggling to resolve it as I can not for the life of me figure out the cause. Some times it will happen after just a day or two of uptime, other times it will freeze up after a week or more. At first I assumed the likely reason was voltage related, but after raising them to higher then they should need to be it has still happened. I can run full blown stress tests for 24+ hours and it won't happen, and normal usage is nowhere near that much stress on the machine. Nothing else that I can think of has changed in months so I have no idea what could be causing this. And since the system logs are showing nothing related to the lock ups I don't even have a good idea of where to begin to resolve it.

So in the meantime, I'm sorry if the server/stats/etc are down, it should only be temporary until I am around and able to reboot it. I will continue to try and resolve the issue as well.....

Merry AvaXmas

In the spirit of Christmas I have decided to put the server back up for the time being... The AvaNet is slightly crippled at the moment but it should be about the same as the AvaMods 5.o Alpha & Beta network. Plus I wanted to have the server up as we finish off the 10th year since AvaMods split off from team cdrive..

Merry Christmas from AvaMods!

Ok, I have some bad news...

Without going into great detail (due to details that aren't exactly legal), I've decided to pull the whole AvaServer offline. So that means the DoD server, stats, svn, as well as a bunch of stuff not directly connected to AvaMods itself will be down. This website and the majority of the AvaMods affiliated sites will not be affected. While its not exactly a big deal for the DoD server to be down, it still sucks. I could possibly have left everything up but it would have required an IP change as well as a dramatic decrease in bandwidth. I decided that wasn't really an acceptable option, so instead just taking the entire AvaServer machine offline is what I see as the best direction to go in.

I have no idea how long this will be for. It could be a week or two, it could be a month, or it could even end up being permanent. When the server does come back online, there will have to be another IP change (if not several) no matter what, that fact is unavoidable. No matter what the eventual outcome is, I'm sure this hurts me more then it does everyone else put together lol. But I still feel the need to offer my apologies for anyone that is somehow inconvenienced by this whole ordeal.

Hopefully AvaMods 5.o will get a chance to continue on... If not.. well this extension was unexpected anyway and bringing us to 12 years of operation still blows me away..

Doing some testing...

We're currently testing out a build of ReHLDS and Metamod-r on the AvaMods 5.o DoD server. There is a chance of there being issues and some things might not be working properly. If you come across any sort of problem during this period, please contact us or post on the forums about it so that we are aware of the issue. We can easily switch back to the official builds if needed, but so far I have not come across anything that did not seem to be working....


* update #1 *

The server was crashing after running for just a little while and I suspect it might be caused by the Metamod-r build, so I reverted back to the previous Metamod-p build and we'll see if that resolves the crashing.
