Tripwire update, this work has been performed by Belriel Klaedin, Rin Arji, Aurorah Akika, and Kraesk - they were kind enough to share the code with me to bring these changes to everyone so please thank them! They may be sharing more soon.

Multi-character tracking via CREST is now possible! You will see an option to authorize additional accounts just below the existing one. This feature does work with auto-mapper but the current system will only track the Tripwire account character. Also until the feature to permanently add characters to a single Tripwire account - multi-char tracking only lasts until you close Tripwire for >20min since it is a temporary tracking option.

Set Destination/Waypoint is back again! This even works with the multi-char tracking.

Fixed a date format conflict with the system comments.

Enjoy!

Been using tripwire for a while. Anyone know of a way to increase the text/font size of text pated into the sig window? It's pretty small on my 2nd monitor in portrait mode. Text size stays the same regardless of how big you make that particular window or I haven't found it.

Most browsers have a "zoom" feature to do just that - otherwise no there is no option to do this in Tripwire.

Tripwire has been adapted to work without the IGB via CREST calls.

Additional work is being made to completely revamp to support ESI.

so i have a problem with tripwire.

I have crest authorized and corp selected under account however i cannot see any connections passed our home WH.

I've tried reauthorizing the crest but idk how to troubleshoot it beyond that

weird thing is it was working for about a day perfectly. I hadn't changed any settings outside of copying and pasting identified sigs.Then it just stopped working one day while i was logged into it. I alt tabbed and bam ever since then all connections vanished. Just home WH. O.O

any help would be greatly appreciated. However due to security reasons i will not be posting any screenshots of how it looks. Just imagine

C3
HOme
J(whatever)
l
l

Nohing

I should mention that no i am not doing this solo so its not because the WH despawned my corp has been ID'ing WH"s since and its not updating on my end...


>>>>>>>>>>I just remade the tab and its fixed idk what was wrong with it but its working now.. disregard!<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

I too have suffered this problem on a number of occasions. One minute my Corp tab is showing all my fellow corpies scanned chains, the next it only shows my home chain. I've made no changes to settings or anything, but it just won't show me the shared information. I've tried re-authorising Crest, and I've tried making a new Corp tab, but to no avail. I'm currently suffering Tripwire in this state, and can only hope that it resolves itself, as it has done in the past, sooner rather than later.

Released some code today... no new features or anything...

  • Fixed many bugs
  • CREST code cleaned up and fixed a few things
  • ~100+ lines of IGB code removed
  • Rewrote several SQL queries to improve performance
  • Added processing time monitoring to several calls
  • Fixed multiple PHP errors showing in the log files


Also if you haven't been keeping tabs on my Twitter feed I have been spending MANY hours the last few weeks battling server lag and connectivity issues, almost ALL of these issues should be gone - future releases like today will further fix these issues.

In an effort to fight the increased load from so many concurrent users (over 40k accounts now) I have added a new server node and upgraded the load balancer. Tripwire now runs on a cluster of 6 servers with a total of 8 CPUs & 6GB RAM. Also some configuration changes have made it easier to upgrade servers or add more to the cluster without any service outages.

Server costs have gone from $40/month to $60 - thank you for your donations that pay for these servers!

I want to rewrite that feature and fix a few issues including that one.

Right now I am about half-way through rewriting the undo/redo feature so it could happen soon. Watch my Twitter feed for more frequent updates on whats going on.

Tripwire patch day!
Some QOL fixes, undo/redo rewrite, and SQL improvements are now live.

Changes:

  • Signature age is no longer reset when changing to/from a wormhole type
  • Bug where wormhole life length will sometimes change when editing the connecting side is now fixed
  • Auto-bookmark naming based on system class is now more consistent
  • Fixed a bug where you couldn't select a character when registering or logging in
  • Undo/Redo rewritten, now each browser tab has it's own undo/redo history (lost when closing tab)
  • The landing page has been updated


Note on Undo/Redo:
It doesn't seem like an improvement but moving the code from server side to client side adds a massive performance boost in server response time. It also makes expanding this feature much easier down the road - let me know. Finally it paves the way to the new signature add/edit abilities coming later and it is now possible to keep long term history on signatures (new admin features to come).

For those who host your own Tripwire servers:
Merging in these code changes might be difficult if you have custom changes to signatures, you will likely have to deal with them because future changes will likely require some of this code. I have also just created a new Tripwire database import script downloadable from https://bitbucket.org/daimian/tripwire/downloads (you won't need the crest.sql file it is included). It shouldn't be difficult to move your current data over into this new database as no major structural changes were made.

SQL Changes:

  • Multiple table indexes added
  • Improved the signature delete trigger (major improvement to deleting signatures)
  • Added a "cleanJumps" event to clean the jumps table out of old data

and here I am again with another Tripwire patch...

CREST support has been removed, EVE SSO is still available and ESI has been added which is what CCP will be replacing the old xml API and CREST with eventually.

You WILL have to add characters to track again, sorry this is a must.

So what has changed?

  • Adding and removing in-game tracking is now easier, but pretty similar
  • You can now choose which character you're tracking to use in Tripwire (highlighted orange)
  • In-game tracking in Tripwire is now optional, select the active character to toggle (highlighted orange)
  • All characters added are tracked at the same time, no limits track 100 if you dare
  • Tracking is now stickier - characters you add won't go away unless you remove them
  • Tracking is now just like it was with the IGB, ships and all (Mass tracking is back, pods shouldn't automap)
  • Tracking is now done based on Tripwire user, meaning you can track the same characters for different accounts if you want


Additionally:

  • Pasted signature life setting is now honored again
  • Pasted wormholes no longer reset the signature age
  • Edited wormholes should now always keep their proper wormhole type based life length
  • Performance increases with removal of old code and new ESI support


All these changes mean we needed some database changes - I'll be posting these later tonight for anyone updating their copy of Tripwire.

Tripwire database updates are available now.

Changes:

  • "active" table has had several columns dropped (biggest change to adapt)
  • "crest" table dropped in favor of new "esi" table
  • Columns from "active" table put into new "tracking" table
  • Added "trackingRemove" trigger to "esi" table
  • Moved "jumpHistory" trigger from "active" to "tracking" table & added a "GATE" exclusion
  • Added "trackingClean" event

The Tripwire outage tonight was caused by a memcache session server failing in one of Tripwire's 3 node servers.

This caused nearly 1/3 of the active users (~680) to get logged out of Tripwire and they began seeing the sync error message appear, most simply waited for the sync issue to go away.

As time went on the other 2 memcache session servers progressively became overloaded from session start, session destroy commands which cause more users to get logged out and add to the load.

At this point Tripwire users were basically DDoSing the servers and I began taking servers down and trying to bring them back in various configurations.

The servers were simply getting overwhelmed by users still sitting on the Tripwire page waiting for the sync error to go away when they had been logged out completely and only a log-in would fix it. Within just moments of starting the servers they were quickly brought to a crawl with failed session attempts.

Finally I decided to try changing the code so not so many session calls were made when a users was logged out, this finally allowed me to get the servers back on their feet again.

Very late night for me and I am exhausted... passing out now.. ZZzzzzzzzzzzz
