Title: Web Page Error Accruing once in a while
Post by: Wrangler on 14 July 2017, 06:30:42
Hi
I know you guys are still in recovery mode.  I'm just reporting just encase this wasn't seen. Properly is.
I'm getting 503 Gateway Error once in while I am going through the threads.  It's not a missing thread that still has link, its basically from what I get is
that webpage times out and is unable to load itself. It looks like I'm still on, but I get the 503 error.  One point yesterday 7/13/2017, the forums were unreachable briefly.

Thank you.

I just prodded people about server errors again myself over email.  I haven't seen any 503s, just mostly 504s (Gateway Timeout) and one 502 (Bad Gateway).  A 504 means that the front end server isn't getting a timely response from the back end.  The receptionist is at their desk and routing your call but no one's picking up when the receptionist calls them on the phone, basically.

I am getting 504's a lot.

Yeah, there's one or two occasionally, then a spike and the boards are unreachable for a time.  I don't have access to get in there and investigate it myself or I'd be digging through log files right now.

So looks like I don't have to start a timeout thread. Add me to the 504 crowd. Got that twice last night around 2:30 EST and 5:30 EST which is not known to be this sites busiest time for people to be posting.

I've also been getting 504s. Less today than I was getting yesterday though.

Post by: Liam's Ghost on 14 July 2017, 16:08:15
I saw a spike of them around midnight (PST) last night. I assumed it was like the way the boards used to become inaccessible around 1 am every night.

No, that maintenance period would give me "Unable to reach the page" errors, not 504s...

Yeah this is a different annoyance than the backups from before.

Before it was like going to the DMV and waiting in line to get a renewed license. Way way too many people standing in line waiting because the line teller is extremely overworked.
Now it is more like trying to talk to someone who forgot to put their hearing aid in. Your words just aren't reaching them at all.

This is the first time I've been able to get in to the forum for somewhere between the last 1-2 hours.  It was all 504 errors.  I hope this helps track down whatever is causing them...

Post by: Daryk on 16 July 2017, 15:33:42
Just back after a few more hours of 504s today.  At this point, I'm actually hoping they're due to maintenance and not some unknown cause...

If I try to go straight to the forums using my shorrtcut (http://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php) I get a 504 error.
If I go to the main page then use the forums button it seems to be fine.

I'm well aware they're continuing.  This is highly unlikely to be location or browser related and affects multiple sites.

I've continued to pass reports along and follow up with the person communicating with the host.  We'll post more information when we have something to share.

No, no! It's ComStar's 504th "Gateway" division. It was on timeout during the succession wars, but was activated a number of times from the Clan Invasion onwards ...

Here some good news: no 504s for me today.  Tried to login and different points throughout the day and never had a problem.  That had not been the case up through yesterday.  Thanks to all involved!   :) (I'll give a thumbs up smiley and applause when they come back)

I didn't have one yesterday, but today (2017-07-21) I had one at 8:45AM EST. Happened on two laptops.

Edit: Happened for me just now, for 30 minutes. 10-10:30AM.

Post by: Wrangler on 21 July 2017, 11:44:48
Had two today within couple hours of one another. I just got out of a 504 Error that lasted 40 minutes.

Let us know if you want us not keep reporting it, but its pretty daily.
Title: Re: Web Page Error Accruing once in a while
Post by: Moonsword on 21 July 2017, 14:36:12
I'm seeing them too, at around the same time some of you report them.  I don't have direct contact with the group managing the server now and our conduit is busy doing things but I'll press this again next week.

Keep letting us know if you have extended issues.  If you see one and it goes away, that's less notable.
Title: Re: Web Page Error Accruing once in a while
Post by: Valkerie on 24 July 2017, 01:08:22
I had an extended outage today.  From around 5:30 PM (PDT) until around 9:30 PM or so.  Timed out every time in that window.  That hasn't happened in about a week now.  Other than that everything has been functional today.

Yeah, it happened me last night as well.  Those 504 gateway errors are getting annoying…I hope it’s not going to cascade into something worse.
Title: Re: Web Page Error Accruing once in a while

Yep, I got hit by the 504th again last night. Think it was around 0100 or 0200 BST.

As a follow-up, I haven't seen any for the past few days, but maybe I'm just lucky. (mbear knocks wood to keep the luck going)

When will I learn that fate has no willpower and always gives in to temptation? 7/26/2017, 6:45AM, 504 error received.

Is the company that suppose to handle the website working on it?  My impression is the volunteers aren't doing that anymore.
I was cut off most of the night yesterday evening.  One moment i was on, refreshed my page and bam i'm hit with a 504 Error.

As I understand it, that's not a website error, but a server side error.
Title: Re: Web Page Error Accruing once in a while
Post by: Moonsword on 27 July 2017, 07:19:55
To put it in non-technical terms, a 504 error means the receptionist is at the front desk and trying to route your request but the person in the back office they're trying to reach isn't picking up the phone in a timely manner.  My suspicion is that the back end is eventually responding correctly because I've seen times where the server is slow but comes back within the timeout, as well as times where a post 504s out but is there when the server becomes responsive again.
Title: Re: Web Page Error Accruing once in a while
Post by: Wrangler on 27 July 2017, 07:22:24
I've noticed slow-downs as well. I thought was just my connection having issues.  So there problem with server essentially?  This 504 error didn't start happening until we moved, but the slowness of the forums themselves has been around for months i am judging this correct.
Title: Re: Web Page Error Accruing once in a while
Post by: Moonsword on 27 July 2017, 07:28:26
This is not the same same server.  I agree there's something going on that's problematic.  However, leaping to conclusions beyond "we have an intermittent performance issue" is premature given the information available.

When it's not bogged down for whatever reason, this server is quite a bit snappier and more responsive than the last one.  It's night and day when I'm posting product pages or adjusting content.  Once we can resolve the intermittent issue, I suspect people will be very pleased with the site's performance.

If its a paid service then someone needs to be fired from that company or CGL should get a few months of free service over this BS. I've seen better reliability from webservers hosted out of someones house.

  A-hem.  Gentlefolk all, the Moderators and forum staff are well aware of the recent 504 problems — and believe me, they’re even more frustrating to us than they are to the general membership.
  That said, I would caution everyone to take a deep breath, keep a firm hold on their tempers, and please, be patient.  All possible efforts are being directed towards a solution, but in the meantime, hostile comments and flying off the handle will do no-one any good — least of all the poster(s) who might get hit with enforcement actions under Rules #1 or #3.

You don't suppose (this sounding stupid) that part of the computers that linking into the server are physically overheating and shutting down do guys think?  The server isn't connecting fully.  With my limited computer background, i remember sometimes depending where their stored. Could it be that the computer being used to link the internet maybe temporarily shutting down to overheating or something like that.  Way this seems to come and go, it kinda strikes me something like that behavior.  That or it's software that's corrupt.

To be honest, and please don't take this wrong, but... nah. Others may disagree with me (Moonsword?), but from where I sit... we know the problem, it's just not something we have a lot we can do about at the moment but wave our hands at the web monkeys and shout "HAAAALP!" about.

The problem IS being looked into, and as was said above there's no one more frustrated with this than the forum staff, I can assure you. But for now, the best we can ask you for is patience, civility, and maybe a beer or two if you're so obliged. ;)

Now, one thing I AM noticing, as Moonsword just alluded to, is that while some people seem to be showing errors at one point in the day or another, others seem to be accessing the page at that point without any problem- I'm showing that Moonsword posted at 8:42 EST, for example, at a point when I was getting a 504 error. That's interesting to me- like it's less of a blackout of the page and more of a brownout, where some can get in but others can't. Maybe I'm wrong on that (known to happen on occasion), but it IS interesting.

I don't doubt it. I certainly was only checking occasionally, and was asleep for 7 hours of that time. For all I know it was up for me the entire time I was asleep lol.

I can't speak to whether it's useful to guys who actually have some web capability like Moonsword here- just that they're aware of the problem (as we all are at this point), and that we ask that people remain calm about this. It's not a fun time for us either, as you probably can imagine.

That definitely sounds wonkey.  I've known it to RARELY happen before, but usually with overseas peeps accessing a stateside site, when some of the routers between their country and the US being down..  Or something like that..
But not from people IN the us having the capacity to access while others in the US not..

Definitely sounds like a brownout analogue, or some form of access throttling, like a 'simultaneous usage limit' or something. Good luck!

Same here... I think the 502s are essentially the same as the 504s as far as troubleshooting goes, though.

Definitely sounds like a brownout analogue, or some form of access throttling, like a 'simultaneous usage limit' or something. Good luck!

The problem with this is the fact that this is a low volume website, even if ALL of the catalyst websites use the same server. While most the websites I have run never hit more than 200 simultaneous users, I have never run across this kind of error even on much much busier sites run under a hosting service. The only usage limit I have seen is generally bandwidth throttling. That being mbps or a monthly cap.

Take a look at https://asdqwe.net/blog/solutions-504-gateway it goes into the tweaks that typically fix the issue, but it reminds me ofor the old dos buffers and files tweaks that sometimes had to be done to get games to work.

I was cut off almost for 24 hours this time.  Someone poke the administrators, we need move this forums to another machine or something.  People will stop coming if this gets into multiple days....

As  per Wrangler - 24 hours no forum for me too. Mostly 504s,and a few 502s. but for the last couple of weeks I've been having issues on and off every day.

All you can do - and all I can do, for that matter - is be patient and wait for this to get fixed.  As a reminder, our staff does not have access to the server, which means we have to wait until someone who does fixes this.  I agree that is taking a great deal of time but please be patient.  When there's some sort of substantive news, it will be shared.

We would also appreciate posters refraining from hyperbolic commentary on the server.

Sorry, Moonstone. I'm am worried and feel bit helpless.  As long were kept in the know that someone is actually fixing this.  It all i ever ask.  Thank You.

I'm in about the same boat, although with more frustration than worry most of the time.  I wish I had something substantive to offer here but I don't.  That's frustrating and I know it doesn't do much to address anyone's concerns.  All I can say is the forum staff is not ignoring this.

FX: Loads a beer keg into the Mech Mortar, and lobs it in the direction of the Frustrated Forum Team camp. (Other beverages available, although not all might survive launch.)

Same here. Getting 502's error for more then 20 hours before accessing the forum right before I go to bed, look at it in the morning and lose it when I change page or post.  :-\

All that since the last 2 weeks.  :-\ :-\

Probably paying for finite bandwidth. So get yet posts in now before the limit is reached.

So has ComStar been fired or are they praying extra extra hard right now for the stability?

I wouldn't complain. If the stability issues have been worked out, so much the better.
That way when the confirm-able GenCon news hits, the Forums'll be able to handle it.

Hope so, but I still wonder if the real issue was found or if some bits were just fiddled with for a temp fix.

i find that in tech troubleshooting, the only difference between the two is results rather than method.
