Deploys for the week of 2013-01-21

[ Edited ]

Two previously-RCed projects are coming back this week, with bug fixes. 

 

Second Life Server (main channel)

Since there was a problem with last week's RC projects (BS and LT had a crasher and Magnum had an issue with parcel search), there is no update for the main channel this week.

 

Second Life RC BlueSteel and Second Life RC LeTigre:

BlueSteel and LeTigre are getting the region crossing improvement project.  This project makes sim performance smoother when objects and avatars cross between regions.  This is the same project which was on BS and LT 2 weeks ago; the only change is a fix for a crasher.

https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Release_Notes/Second_Life_RC_BlueSteel/13#13.01.14.269010

https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Release_Notes/Second_Life_RC_LeTigre/13#13.01.14.269010

Scheduled Wednesday 2013-01-23 07:00-11:00 PST

 

Second Life RC Magnum:

Magnum is getting the interest list improvement project.  This update should reduce the bandwidth usage of viewers due to object updates, and should improve simulator performance, especially in sims with many connected avatars.  This is the same project which was on BS and LT last week, briefly; the only change is a fix for two crash modes.

https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Release_Notes/Second_Life_RC_Magnum/13#13.01.17.269162  

Scheduled Wednesday 2013-01-23 07:00-11:00 PST

 

We will be monitoring this thread as the code gets released, so feel free to note any observations you have about the server updates.  If you have a specific bug you'd like to report, please file a Jira

Respirator. Check!

Body armor. Check!

Earplugs. Check!

Simulator and viewer are NOT getting along well after "the roll" on Wednesday.  This is a mainland region so we have been having to get support to look at it and trying to talk them into restarting.  We find that the restarts, which did change the region's IP address by, presumably moving it to another host computer.  After clearing cache, group cache and allowing time for things to settle, conditions are not improved.

Symptoms:

  • Chat duplication
  • Attachments displayed as worn in inventory not appearing at all
  • Attachments not appearing completely, i.e., some parts of worn link-sets are not visible.  No pattern detected.
  • Some objects in world not appearing at all or incompletely
  • Avatar not always able to enter region "in a timely manner" failures common
  • Upon entering region, ones own avatar appears frozen in place but is probably actually moving when controls are operated (see next item)
  • After entering region by teleport, my avatar hovered at the teleport destination for many seconds before suddenly "warping" in the direction I was trying to travel by walking.  This is not the normal "object interpolation" jump seen when traveling linearly and receiving sparse course updates.
  • Outfit changes are MUCH slower in the affected region than in the baseline region

Affected region:

Maestro,

Bots in Magnum areas are downloading 100kB/sec. Just 1 bot had downloaded over 5GB of data before I caught it. Restarting the bot doesn't help. The usage climbs back to exactly 100kB/sec within minutes.

This image show the bot's usage yesterday. Before/after the roll is obvious:

Here is another view that shows the bot's usage for the first 4 minutes after logging into or TP'ing into a Magnum region. The left side is download, the right side is upload:

Ardy, Triple, NogarDrevlis: thanks for the reports.  We are investigating these issues on Magnum.  At a glance, the issues do seem like they could be triggered by bugs in the interest list changes.

Triple -

I've been examining the code to figure out why the simulator might start sending lots of data to a bot.  I think I identified one mode:  if the bot never sends a valid AgentUpdate UDP message (which includes info about the camera's view angles and draw distance) then the server-side culling will be using some initialized values that might trigger resends of data.  I'll change the initialized camera properties to be more sane defaults and try to get this out in an update, but if you happen to know if your bot implements the AgentUpdate message or not I'd love to hear back.  At the moment this is my only theory for the cause of the problem.

Sorry Andrew, I don't have any way to tell that that I know of. The bot's console screen remains silent, and the bot even continues to function normally as far as I can tell.

If you can set up a test region somewhere (on agni) it would be easy enough for me to TP the bot there and watch the traffic meter.

ETA: Does the 100kB/sec cap the data appears to reach after 2 minutes give a clue? Is anything capped at that rate?

Andrew and Maestro,

I just realized I gave some incorrect information. This problem is occurring with the LibOpenMetaverse bot, not a JVA bot. I used to use JVA but switched. There is another thread concerning a problem with JVA bots.

This bot is open source, so if there if is a good search string or another way to tell if valid AgentUpdate UDP messages are being sent let me know.
