    I might turn auto draft off for a little while if it keeps happening. Hopefully these problems will be short-lived.

    Please "forget" to turn it back on. :)

    I've done a little tweak to the server configs, we'll see if it helps.

    From my side it looks like there was a big performance improvement. Any feedback you guys have would be appreciated at this point.

    I got a warning from Safari about the server not being verified?

    Otherwise fine, but figured that was worth bringing up

    @IcyLiquid Haven't noticed any changes with page load times, but things seem a bit more stable for now. Also not seeing the 'plural' bug as much as in the last few days.

    Things feel super snappy on my end.

    Thanks for fixing all the things!

    Things seems a bit snappier since the update on my end, however I've had a couple of 503s and logouts in the past hour or so.

    On mobile, have been signed out once and while I haven't seen a proper 503 I might have had them trigger when the bookmarks failed to load a few times.

    Tonight 7/21 - 7/22 I've seen a couple random log outs. But then again I've had random VPN logouts so I'm not willing to throw out my PC being weird tonight. But would throw it out there all the same.

  • XaquinXaquin Right behind you!Registered User regular
    I've had a couple logouts

    once attempting to use the mobile site on my iphone and once on my PC

    Also getting random logouts (but a refresh shows me logged back in) and I've gotten a few over capacity popups too.

    Hate to bring bad news into the thread after a fix was announced, but I've been getting signed out like mad the last hour or so. Is it just a delay in the update or do I need to clear my mobile cache or something?

    Still refining the fix actually, I found the root cause because as @bowen correctly pointed out, this is a dirty hack and I should be judged.

    When you shard randomly, how does that effect performance? Seems like there should be some sort of dispatcher in charge because random could mean stack everything onto 1 server theoretically.

    Unless I'm reading that wrong.

  • IcyLiquidIcyLiquid Two Steaks Montreal, QuebecAdministrator, Vanilla Staff vanilla
    There are a couple of bits of randomness in there. Which part are you referring to?

    +            $shardSlices = array_rand($shardMap, $shards);
    +            $shardMap = array_intersect_key($shardMap, array_fill_keys($shardSlices, true));
    +        }
    

    Mostly this one. Seems like you could stack the deck even during normal randomness? I'll admit I don't have much experience with memcache and sharding though.

    If you're talking about this:
            // If we're sharding to less servers than we know about, pick some random ones
            if ($shards < $mapSize) {
                $shardSlices = array_rand($shardMap, $shards);
                $shardMap = array_intersect_key($shardMap, array_fill_keys($shardSlices, true));
            }
            $mapSize = count($shardMap);
    

    Basically, if the number of shards is lower than the number of servers, we want to pick a random subset of the servers to place shards on. We are picking $numberOfShards items out of the list and placing one shard on each. There's no chance of all the shards being on one server here.

    If you're talking about this:
                if (!count($servers)) {
                    // Use random server keys and hope for the best
    
                    foreach ($serverList as $server) {
                        $serverName = $server['host'];
                        $servers[$serverName] = betterRandomString(6, 'a0');
                    }
                }
    

    Then yes there is a chance that keys will end up in the same place, but this is a fallback in the case where the memcached library has a broken implementation of `getServerByKey()` which prevents it from working, so we just have to make do. Also, anyone who has a broken memcached and is storing large enough data to warrant sharding should probably be hung?

    Just experienced the server throwing another fit, displayed the "Opps, Something Went Wrong" page, logged me out, etc.

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.
