DRuG MTA now 32 players iinet vps data centre hosted

Postby [DRuG]NikT on Sat Aug 27, 2011 5:20 am

OK, this mta 1.1 is really raping my link... it's not constant, but when the map changes now, my net stops entirely, even name lookups, for about 30 seconds... it's getting annoying really fast.

I've asked rcdarkangel if it's ok to switch the (unused) au fdm samp server to mta or perhaps even just add it.. yet to receive a response, but am also researching different providers for VPSs - web24 seem cheap but their bandwidth charges are a catch.. serverffs seem ok but you end up paying $50/month which leads to the fact there's quite a few at that price point - iinet's offering seems pretty good at that rate, too - $50 for 100GB traffic and a decent hardware spec.

*EDIT* I've just changed my internet plan to iinet home 2 which is $30 less, but the same limits, no static IP.. and bought and iinet VPS2 for $50 a month - 1GB RAM/2GHz CPU/30GB Storage/100GB Traffic/1 Static IP/Linux.

So for an extra $20 a month, DRuG now has a VPS running on iinet.. I'll start it out on 32 players and see how we go with the bandwidth. More news as it goes online. In the short term I have moved it to rcdarkangels server... that will settle my link down in the meantime.

Just added race_splittimes by -]alw[-AcidbRain to replace race_progress which was lagging the fps by about 12 frames... I think the new one is an improvement - it shows a dynamic list of who's winning and the time between each player. You can modify the times it displays next to the names with /splittimes_cycle..

Relative to player (default) - shows checkpoint times for active player, and time differences for all other players.
Absolute - shows checkpoint times for all players.
Relative to first - shows checkpoint times for first ranked player, and time differences for all other players.
Off - no times are shown.

OK, iinet host is UP!

I'm in the process of zipping up the current server and copying it across to iinet, then some time later tonight I'll start the MTA up on there instead.

What's the new address, you ask?

We also now have a subdomain registered - mta.drugcrew.com - vectra, get me on msn & I'll send u a zip of the 1.1 server & register you mtaeu.drugcrew.com... in fact, I guess I can do that now... (done).

More news as the move progresses folks!

Code: Select all
nikt@mta.drugcrew.com's password:
mtasa010911.tar.gz                             71%  626MB  21.6MB/s   00:11 ETA


Errmm - this seems to be a pretty fast link :D

OK MTA is up and now running through the new server - mta.drugcrew.com.

I also just got webstats working on there too, with the ladder & everything running faster than ever before.

Now to sit & consider what else I should do with it :D
