Being a sys admin myself I know how things go. I don't know if most of you realize the complexity that goes into the cluster that they use. This isn't just a couple of servers working together. This is some real complex equipment.

Multi-blade chasis with servers having RAM in the Tera Bytes, Storage Area Networks having probably at least two if not three controllers with the same for the hdds that probably number in the hundreds to host everything. THen you have to have the core switch/router infrastructure that supports a high enough bandwidth to process all of the transactions internally and externally that happen. I'm sure just the Databases alone are probably on some massive Oracle server or three to even manage everything.

In a system like this saying that it doesn't "Startup" is like finding a needle in the proverbial lake, and the needle is made of clear glass and doesn't have to be at the bottom.

I'm sure CCP tried all the usual suspects first to get a quick restore and when that failed they are having to methodically not let their heads spin off their shoulders and go through each system involved and check it.

*cheers* good luck and I will now head back to my spreadsheets in space companion game.



I work at a medium size hospital, and we have a respectable IT infrastructure. Lots of wireless stuff, telemetry, iPads with medical records, digital forms and such.

Walking into the IT server room was something like walking into the computer fore of a futuristic starship, IMO. Blinking lights, wires everywhere, racks all over the place, a robot, clicking and beeping and all that fun stuff! Our system really isn't even that complex, too!

I can't imagine how complex the CCP server cluster is, if it takes all that just to run a hospital in a medium sized city!

Have you tried to taser the hamster back to life? I see doctors use those pads on patients, maybe tase the hamster a few times to get it up and running.

just sayin ..


Kinda hard when it doesn't happen but once in a blue moon, eh? And the trouble isn't with the "game", it's the hardware.


are you for real??? lol
"it isn't in the game but in the hardware"

This is the story of a game named EVE. EVE worked for a company in a big server where she was Cluster number 427. Cluster Number 427's job was simple: she sat in hamster ball 427 and pushed out the tics on the server. Orders came to her through the cluster's network, telling her when to push the tic, how many to push, and how fast. This is what Cluster 427 did every day of every month and every year, and although others might have considered it soul-rending, EVE relished every moment that the orders came in, as though she had been made exactly for this job. And EVE was happy.

And then one day, something very peculiar happened. Something that would forever change EVE. Something she would never quite forget. She had been at her for nearly an 24 hours when he realized that not one single order had arrived from CCP. No-one had showed up to give her instructions, call a meeting, or even say Hi. Something was very clearly wrong. Shocked, frozen solid, EVE found herself unable to move for the longest time.
