The additional asset server maintenance has been completed and the grid logins reopened.
OSgrid logins are closed for additional asset service work and set additional cluster parameters.
We deeply apologize for any inventory or asset issues that you have encountered.
An unplanned emergency maintenance to patch some of the asset server cluster software was started yesterday.
Melanie is applying updates to resolve serious bugs in the cluster code.
During this work, you may experience unexpected error messages during login, region start, or when rezzing items.
An additional note will be posted once the updates are complete and tested.
Hey folks, A new configuration file has been added to OpenSimulator and is included in the new build. Here are some details on how it works:
The new file is called osslEnable.ini and will be located in the config-include folder. By default it is disabled, but can be enabled by un-commenting the include line in the new [OSSL] section of OpenSim.ini
This file provides a way to easily enable OSSL scripting functions in your simulator. you can also edit the path for this file and store it outside of the OpenSim folder so you don’t have to edit it each time you update, or you may not even wish to use it at all.
If anyone has any questions about the use of this new file, give me a shout in-world or in irc and myself (or someone else) will try our best to answer any questions.
LBSA Plaza and a couple sandboxes are offline for server maintenance.
We will bring them back up as soon as it is completed.
While there was no ETA, the data center did say “shortly.”
Thanks to Cuteulala Artis for the initial report of her region connection issues and the related Sandbox region issue.
Touch wood, but so far, the reopening of OSgrid has gone extremely well.
There has also been a 30% increase in concurrency since return to service.
While there were a handful of bumps settling in, the new asset cluster has performed extremely well.
Along the way we have found the occasional bad asset, which were nicknamed “chicken bones” and require an admin to intervene.
But, the admin team has been very quick to find and remove these bad assets as they are encountered.
From investigation these assets were long standing corruption in the asset data which existed long before the RAID crash, which the new asset service has uncovered for us to clear up.
After the assets are rezzed, the problem occurs, and an admin clears the bad asset from disk, the uploaded replacement (good) assets match the asset hash and repair the damage.
VEHICLE CODE AND COMMUNITIES
Improvements in the base OpenSimulator vehicle code have led car, boat, and airplane enthusiasts to begin collecting together in their respective communities.
Sandbox Plaza III has been updated to provide water space for boat developers, and NPC support is coming soon.
