Server Maintenance Reduced

Server Maintenance Reduced - EVE Online -

According to the latest EVE Online developer blog from CCP Hunter, the daily server downtime since launch has been approaching an hour. However, beginning November 1st, the daily server downtime and maintenance time will be reduced to half that, thirty minutes. Daily server maintenance is necessary to keep the database structure in good working order.

What has been done to reduce downtime?

In the old days, systems in EVE Online were built on the fact that there was daily downtime. In the last few years no new code has been produced that relies on downtime and a great deal of work has been done in removing old dependencies on downtime. You could say that we are still paying for past sins.

In addition to this we have worked on the cluster shutdown procedure and startup procedure so that the cluster goes down and up faster.

Read the full blog on how the reduction came about here.
