FurrTrax has migrated to MariaDB
Posted by: DarkXander at 01-16-2017 14:46 PM
For anyone who witnessed the small 2 minute outage a short time ago, it wasnt a malfunction. It was me shutting down the old MySQL DB system and switching FurrTrax to instead connect to the new MariaDB Server. Thus far mariadb has proven to be more robust, and efficient, we have actually seen a 20% increase in site performance since the change.

Site Downtime Today
Posted by: DarkXander at 01-09-2017 20:35 PM
Sorry Guys, Today our Ubuntu MySQL core decided it wanted to do some updates, so i allowed it to do them, only to find out(to my horror), that the ubuntu repository was having some kind of issue, and a couple of the updates blew the server sky high. Upon rescue install it still failed.

So i ended up having to reinstall the MySQL system which is a seperate Virtual Machine inside our cluster, which is why the site appeared online, but with all the information missing. We can thank the Ubuntu gods for this....

No data was lost as i rolled backups right before doing the updates. So right down to the minute it went down, we didnt loose a thing.

Intermittently getting login pages
Posted by: DarkXander at 12-19-2016 15:11 PM
For those intermittently getting login pages for no reason, its due to a very large DDoS that is on a neighboring network to ours hitting someone else, and were intermittently getting some of the blow back from it. its already being mitigated according to the DC staff, but it isnt hitting us, just causing some congestion at a common routing point.

Site Donations Needed
Posted by: DarkXander at 12-11-2016 14:24 PM
Hey guys, just noticed, in the last 60 days, we have only had $18 in donations, but i have paid out $315.82. Now part of that was due to all the domains coming up for renewals which i pay for only once a year. but a good chunk is the Server and CDN Costs. Any help you guys can chip in is always appreciated. And donator perks are negotiable. If there is some unique perk you want for donating, ask us, within reason, we will accomidate it. This cost listed above, does not include the 2 new Processors i just bought for our servers.

FurrTrax Upgrades, Hardware and Software, Big News
Posted by: DarkXander at 12-11-2016 14:08 PM
For those who have experienced the site logging them out suddenly for a minute, or sometimes a little longer, dont fret, this wasnt the system going down. This was me working on things behind the scenes, usually doing a database backup before each change. When i do a backup the database momentarily goes offline to do it, thus everyone gets logged out.

Im pleased to report, the first round of upgrades which were migrating the whole site to a new VM in my cluster with updated apache and php completed with only minor hickups.(had to update a few sections that used php code that was depreciated.)

The second batch, which i completed last night with no hickups, and only a few minutes of downtime was migrating the entire database server to a new seperate VM as well, with the latest MySQL. The new version is noticably faster, and i havent even shifted all the cpu power to it from the old one yet. So it may yet get even a little faster once i fully decommission the old database server(moving some extra files i stored there off it before deleting the whole VM.)

The third batch hasnt happenned yet, but involved firmware updates to the cluster itself hardware wise, and then DUN DUN DUN, the install of 2 new processors into the main server of the cluster. Out will go the 2 x Xeon E5620 i7 Series Quad Cores, And in will go the 2 new Xeon X5650 i7 Series HEX Cores. Thats right the main server will have twin six core cpus. and also of a higher speed per core than the old ones.

These processors cost me a pretty penny and if Anyone can help out via donations it would be a nice Christmas/Hanukkah gift for FurrTrax. Remember we are all donation driven, and we intend to stay that way!

FurrTrax Severs Ties with BlueHost
Posted by: DarkXander at 11-07-2016 15:12 PM
In an effort to improve our CDN reliability, and since its mail systems have long since failed us which was its original function, we have finished migrating away from bluehost completely. We have been having intermittent issues for a while now where the CDN goes offline, stutters horribly, and sometimes would even get its software updated, and all of our settings erased/reset with no warning. We have moved to a new CDN host now.

The website itself is all still run and controlled from Spartan, our main server, but the caching of images, video, css, etc, is all now migrated to the new host and so far its been working well.

Todays Unplanned Downtime
Posted by: DarkXander at 09-24-2016 13:39 PM
Sorry for the downtime today guys, we had a power issue due to a UPS failure. The Control board failed not the batteries. Thus everything went offline and i had to drive down and swap it out. All is well again

PSA: Password Resets are Fixed! My Bad!
Posted by: DarkXander at 09-14-2016 13:57 PM
It seems i broke the password reset tool last time i modified it due to a typo in the reset cooldown timer, it always thought you had tried resetting to many times. So it was never actually sending out emails... Special thanks to the person who took the time to explain what they saw with it so i could find the bug and fix it. There were no security issues caused by the bug, only the effect of not being allowed to reset your password via email.

Spotlight: LOL-able DoS Attack
Posted by: DarkXander at 08-08-2016 10:24 AM
Someone throughout the weekend has been hitting us with a DoS with BW usage totaling a whopping ER-MAH-GERD 2.78 GB!! So when you factor in we have been hit by 14 TB in the past and not gone down, this attacker has only managed to splatter a fly on our windshield. The IDS and Firewall call it as they see it, even if its hilariously tiny.
