  1. Hello everyone! Indeed, today's rolls have been somewhat unusual, and we've spent almost all of our time trying to get the grid back into a good and healthy state. We're just about there, and we anticipate fewer bumps in the road tomorrow. There will definitely be restarts for regions that need it all regions on RCs, and some RC regions may shuffle around which code they're running, but at the end of tomorrow none should be running anything that's new this week.
  2. As Profaitchikenz alludes to, we made a change to our restart procedure aimed at minimizing disruption (trying to limit each region to one restart) when restarting simhosts (not merely simulators, which as Grumpity Linden posted about is handled by Grid Poking Bot) but unfortunately this exposed a bug with restarting these machines that affected saving scripts in-world. In order to avoid having script saving broken, we started the roll from scratch without this change to our procedure, which is as of this post is ongoing and headed toward the finish line.
  3. Actually this is sort of interesting, we are in the process of making some changes to how we handle inventory backend hosts that could be related to this. It should be mostly transparent to Residents, but if you do see issues like this, we definitely want to hear about them. If you could file a BUG jira at jira.secondlife.com and include the region name, environment information from Help->About Second Life, the time you experienced the issue, and the details of what you tried and what happened I would greatly appreciate it!
  4. Second Life Server: 2019-10-26T00:06:48.532192 Release notes Scheduled Tuesday 2019-11-05 03:00-10:00 PST Second Life RCs: 2019-11-01T18:02:37.532376 (This is a rebuilt version of 2019-10-24T19:07:13.532143 which includes features that are going to Second Life Server this week) Release notes Scheduled Wednesday 2019-11-06 07:00-10:30 PST 2019-11-01T18:05:51.532377 Release notes also TBD, this is a new release that includes just two changes, one of which is internal, and the other of which contains a script to monitor additional region data during rolls Somehow we broke scripts uploading in 532377 (‽), so that's definitely not going to Agni this week! If you see messages about "Unable to upload 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234567890ab due to the following reason" on a version that isn't 532377 we'd very much like to know about it; please file a BUG report at jira.secondlife.com and include all the information requested. On Region Restarts: Regions will be restarted if they have been running for more than 10 days on Tuesday (Main Channel) and Wednesday (RCs) regardless of whether or not new code is being deployed, for the general health and well being of the Simulators. Nothing beats turning it off and then on again ... once in a while. As always please plan events around these maintenance windows. However, if you are hosting an event on Tuesday or Wednesday when we're not deploying new code, you can restart your region ahead of time to avoid interruptions.
  5. Should be fixed now LoganPryor, try again and let me know if you still have problems?
  6. Hi everyone! Sorry for the late deploy plan, I've been testing some changes we're making to internal bits and bobs as a result of the outage this weekend. Release Notes will be forthcoming as soon as I've generated them! (And as a to answer a question I've seen asked about those Release Notes, the date in grey next to a simulator's build ID is the date we generated the notes. Sometimes we generate them on a Friday, sometimes on a Tuesday or a Wednesday, and sometimes we have to re-generated them between rolls of the same version to add or change information) Second Life Server (No Roll) Second Life RCs: 2019-10-24T19:07:13.532143 Release Notes: https://releasenotes.secondlife.com/simulator/2019-10-24T19%3A07%3A13.532143.html 2019-10-26T00:06:48.532192 Release Notes: https://releasenotes.secondlife.com/simulator/2019-10-26T00%3A06%3A48.532192.html Scheduled Wednesday 2019-10-30 07:00-10:30 PDT (Reminder that the US switches from Daylight Time to Standard Time this coming Sunday 2019-11-02.

  7. Hi everyone, our Operations engineers are on the case and currently working to troubleshoot the current root cause (which could include symptoms like rez or derez failures, login difficulties, disconnects when teleporting, and problems sending or receiving inventory items).
  8. We're still ironing out the process of the new release notes generator, and it looks like you found a bug in the process. Thanks! I've forwarded that to the appropriate Lindens to examine.
  9. Second Life Server (No Roll) Second Life RCs (No Roll) Due to a late-breaking bug found during the QA process we are unable to put out a fixed version of last week's roll to RC.
  10. Yep, we are rolling the grid right now to revert the most recent update to LSL script improvements. This should prevent further issues with objects communicating. (But if you continue seeing issues with scripts, whether it's communication or something else we want to know about them!)
  11. Hi there Animats, I can't speak to your concerns regarding overloading, but Kama Center has been up for over an hour. Have you double checked what you're seeing at all?
  12. That isn't a bug, it is the precise version identifier for that simulator build. If a different identifier would be better there's always a feature request describing the user case for when it needs to roll off the tongue (but I hope you'll give this a try first and see if as we get a couple of weeks into this new way of doing things it starts to make more sense).
  13. We've updated the first post to point to the new releasenotes.secondlife.com website for simulator releases (https://releasenotes.secondlife.com/simulator/2019-08-23T17%3A54%3A14.530353.html).

  15. Hey everyone, We've gotten some very helpful reports so far; in order to further narrow down the problem's exact cause it would be really helpful if someone who files a future bug report in Jira regarding this issue could include their viewer logs for the session where they got disconnected on teleport.
  16. Next time this occurs @NeevaBecketEmagan could you please file a BUG at https://jira.secondlife.com with the region the DNS failure happened on, the time and date the failure happened, how you found out that the failure happened, and what you were trying to request (minus any sensitive data that may be sent with the request). Thanks!

  19. I was not in the decision making or testing loop for that decision at all, and I haven't asked around of the people who were, so I can't speak with any authority on the subject. What I can tell you about is a friend of mine who started a small subscription business, who observed that after the discount she was giving for annual users she still made more money per month off those users because of the fixed portion of the credit card processing fees she had to pay for monthly subscribers.
  20. Yeah, I just didn't Pin the topic because it doesn't have proper patch note links yet.

  22. Was the last time you encountered the disconnect dialog after the roll a few hours ago @Sharie Criss?
  23. Hi everyone, I just wanted to let you know that I've updated the Server Deploy Plan for the week to reflect that we're actively working on this issue.
  24. That's what I get for posting release notes while half asleep! This is the same release as last week's roll to BlueSteel and LeTigre, with an added fix to make sure data shows up for newly added estate managers as well as some internal fixes.
