Constant error 503 in last hours using llHTTPRequest

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This is for scripters: is anyone else having this error when accessing another server using the llHTTPRequest functions? My games make use of this function frequently to talk to their external server, and since yesterday I'm getting a lot of error 503. My own server is up and running, I'm watching it, but the error 503 happens since yesterday, and looks sporadic. Stay working for some hours, then start error 503 again.

The error 503, as stated in the LSL wiki, occurs when the LL HTTP server is doing reset and is unreachable in the moment you do the request.

P.S: I'm aware of the earthquake, and can be it the cause. Just want to know if anyone else is having the same.

I have seen the same issue. I know others have filed tickets on this but no updates to the grid status concerning this or any reply to those tickets, other than for one game owner who was asked for additional information.

I have run into that some times now  - some games seem to overdo their calls. AFAIK there is a limited number of http calls you can do from a sim in a a given period, so once some wicked http leech all ate them up all the other users are doomed for a while...

Can also be (ab)used as emergency defence - if you suspect those not-a-vampire game which must not be named on your sim: SPAM the http requests until an error occurs and their HUDs go useless.

My game is working for over 2 years without this problem. And is happening even in the sim there is only my game running, so no "defense" from another running here. it is strange because it can stay like 3 hours quiet, running as usual, and suddenly starts with the error. I can't find from were it is coming. I even checked all the logs from my server, and it is running ok as it always did. My game recovers from the problem almost instantly, so not a great issue, but it is very annoying now.

The throttle for too much requests gives a NULL_KEY in the event http_response, I'm only getting the error 503, nothing else.

i want to narrow down were to look to find the problem.

I have been having this problem off and on for a few months and only noticed as locations were disappearing off the webpage.  It is sporadic but seems to mainly  affect RC regions.  It doesn't always happen everywhere at the same time so if you move to another sim things work as normal.  I have an open ticket with LL and they are investigating.  I've been asked to gather information in real-time and pass it on and am trying to do this as best I can but it can be a bit difficult as the interruption doesn't always last long, nor am I always aware of it happening.

Update: we found that it is a DNS error between the LL server and our server.

Since the website is working to everyone, not a problem in our server.

[13:00] SL HTTP Reset: 503 - <html>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
</meta>
<title>ERROR: The requested URL could not be retrieved</title>
<body id="ERR_DNS_FAIL">
<div id="titles">
<h1>ERROR</h1>
<h2>DNS Failure</h2>
</div>
<!-- ERR_DNS_FAIL -->
</body></html>

Now, it started only after the earthquake. So, we will just wait now to see if thing get fixed.

I'll do it next time, @Mazidox Linden.

For now it is solved, the problem just disappeared today morning, after being less frequent since Sunday. I believe that, in my case, was a damaged DNS router (since it started after the earthquake), and it got fixed now.
