Recent EQ2U Performance

Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2 Data & EQ2U

As some of you have no doubt noticed, EQ2U has had some performance issues lately. Usually these outages have been short-lived but last night, EQ2 data updates stopped around 8:15pm last night and only sporadically worked today.

According to a recent tweet from John Smedley, PlanetSide 2 will soon be launching its own twice-delayed API service which will enable player-driven PS2 sites just as the EQ2 Data Feeds have enabled EQ2U and other sites. Hopefully they’re just working out the kinks and things will work themselves out over the next few days.

Just in the last hour we’ve seen data coming in again and starting to catch up. We wish the best of luck to the PlanetSide 2 folks and data team as they launch the second of what will hopefully be a companywide initiative to offer data to the public for all of SOE’s games.

Meanwhile we’ve started looking at some new data which we’re very excited about. Updates as we have it.

Trackback from your site.

      It’s not a hosting issue.

    I noticed the eq2_default.ini was patched yesterday or sometime recently and noticed this line:

    census_paperdoll_enabled false

    Wondered if this turns off the automatic capturing of paperdoll images when we zone. Because it seems my stats and appearance equipment are getting updated (after some time delay) but my paperdoll image has not been (and yes I am doing a forced browser refresh).

    I did not see a similar statement in my eq2_recent.ini file.

      I feel so naked without eq2u

      Updates should be coming through now.

      There was some concern that all the paperdoll images being exported every time people zone/camp was putting too much of a load on the servers when you consider all the EQ2 and Planetside 2 data all being on a single server cluster. Things will be changing soon to ensure performance for both games’ Census services.

    It looks like Zone updates are disabled as well. If you want your character updated in Census, you’ll need to Camp to another character.

    I’m somewhat surprised they don’t put in a manual “Send Census Updates Now” button or something. It makes sense to me to stop sending out updates with every zone. 95% of the time, nothing will have changed on your character anyway. Thanks for the info.
