    Lag Issue Update

    I have been speaking with the hosting company about the lag issue, and we decided that it would be best to move to a new node on their network. The reason for this is we think the issue might be another server hosted on the same node as us causing the problem. This may or may not fix the issue, but it is what we have decided to do.

    All this means is that the server IP has changed. Sense you all use the DNS this will not be an issue, but you might not be able to connect to the server while the DNS takes time to propagate.

    Also.. An unforeseen issue is that after the transfer I do not have access to old MySQL Databases. So far I have managed to recover the Towny data, so your towns are safe. But I have been struggling to get back the LogBlock, and the McMMo Data. I am in contact with the hosting company trying to get access to my old MySQL databases. So you might not have access to your McMMo abilities temporarily.

    Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused, and hopefully it fixes this stupid lag issue.

    I am very sad to say that changing nodes did not fix the lag issues. Once again everything is pointing at the maps themselves.

    We can not continue if this lag problem is not fixed. The server has seen almost nothing in donations sense this problem started, and if we are up for another month in this condition we will be bankrupt. I am at the point where trying to save the current maps has become a futile effort, and anymore time spent on it will be a wasted effort. I can not find what is on each map causing the lag. I have spent a whole month looking, searching manually, and searching with plugins. I also think that whoever built whatever is causing this lag did it on purpose, and with malicious intent.

    I will still update the current server to 1.7 and hope to god the lag mysteriously disappears as it appeared in 1.6.4. But after a whole month of tackling this issue I have little hope of it getting fixed at this point.

    To tell you the truth.. I think its absolutely amazing that I have had a server up where we have not had to remove a map in 2 whole years.

    Once bukkit has finally updated to 1.7. It seems as if we have no choice but to start anew everything in order to continue as a community. I can not find what

    After much further testing. I cant say that it is anyone map, or even a map at all. I have loaded each map up individually and seen the issue with all of them. I also did the same with the plugins, and can not pin point it to any single plugin. Whats pissing me off even more is that I cant find any other information about others with this issue.

    I am baffled, and frustrated.

    Tonight I am running a chunk fixer on all the maps. Once again.. there is no guarantee that this will fix anything. But it is something we can do to attempt to repair any corrupt chunks that may be causing issues. The server will be down for the rest of the night while it runs.

    So is it possible that 1.6.4 is to blame?

    Turns out that 1.6.4 was to blame! I knew it. Nothing made sense other than it was 1.6.4. Well bukkit just released an update for 1.6.4. Even after 1.7 is already out. After updating to the new 1.6.4 version the lag has mysteriously disappeared as it appeared when we fist updated to 1.6.4.

    So I am kind of frustrated that I put in so many hours trying to solve an issue that I had absolutely no control over. But at least that is over and dealt with. We can now move forward again.

    We have suffered some major losses due to this lag issue tho. We have almost no donation for this last month. So players need to make an effort to get our ads bumped if they can not donate.
