Dore, Ahern, Bonifacio, and Morris are now up!

Recommended Posts

But Mauve is still DOWN! ☹️

Seriously...Dore, Ahern, Bonifacio? Out of those, there is a small rez parcel, the rest of the parcels are no-rez, no-script or no public access.

The sandboxes online are either, no script, Premium only, flat sand.

Mauve is the only sandbox on aditi to have water, green grass, plants, trees, public rezzing, public scripts & public access.

And LL is denying the public access! It's a crime! 😥

As announced at Server User Group, those regions are now running on AWS, in "the cloud". Outgoing HTTP requests and outgoing emails are unavailable at present, while some security throttling problems are resolved.

Notes so far, using Firestorm 6.3.9.

  • Ordinary walking around and flying work fine.
  • My motorcycles and escalators work fine.
  • Walking though region crossings works fine.
  • Driving through region crossings worked once and failed once.
  • Dore sim behaves strangely. Clothing changes don't happen. Changing outfits hung, with the rotating "busy" icon. Logging out and logging back in again produced several minutes of "still logging out" messages. When login succeeded, clothing wouldn't load at all. Stuck at "reddish brown cloud". Able to change clothing in Morris and Bonifacio. Most of the time.
  • Attachments which normally respond to "touch" intermittently don't work in some areas. Still trying to find a pattern.

Not bad for the first day in the cloud.

It isn't the first day a region has been on the cloud, nor is it the first time they announced a region on aditi was running in the cloud.

Morris has been moved on and off the cloud for over two months now.

So far, Ahern, Bonifacio, and Morris seem to work fine. Dore is broken. Vehicle region crossing into Dore failed 3 out of 3 tries. Clothes changing in Dore failed twice. Is there something special about Dore?

Well, it was news to me. Admittedly I don't even get to every Tuesday server group meeting, and rarely any others, so it easily could have escaped my attention (but then I'm not sure, then, what Simon's "minor news" was... the second region on the cloud?).

One thing I mentioned at the meeting: I logged my cheapskate alt into one of the cloud regions (with http-out disabled) and he got spammed by error messages from his freebie mesh body. If I had the paid-for version, I'd sure be trying it there, just to see whether they're snooping on the paying customers, too. But it occurs to me that this http traffic could have been exposed earlier, on land where the owner had run up the http throttles with other scripts.

Many products are backed with http based update checking.

Whether they also monitor your chat or travel is anyone's guess, heh.

That's certainly true. I guess my suspicions are aroused by there being no evidence of it ever getting an update -- including in the entire history of the product's predecessor. So yeah, it all could be innocent, but that'd be off-brand.

Same situation today. Totally repeatable.

Hi guys, thanks for checking this out.  The simulator version Dore was on (which is not running on the cloud) had a misconfigured inventory setting, which caused the clothes changing issue.  This problem should be fixed with an update that went out ~30 minutes ago.

We are aware of the object region crossing issue when an object moves from a cloud region into a non-cloud region (which explains the vehicle issue when driving into Dore).

At the moment it seems only a tiny amount of regions are running in the cloud on the beta grid.

Can you share any ETAs or a realistic timetable on when more regions to be running on AWS? 

Is everything on track for the uplift to finish on time ? Will this be pushed back into 2021 ? 

It's good to see the lab making some progress in this area so far.
