Re: Fix Killing Floor 2 Server High I/O, Hard Drive usage custom maps

The beta gets rid of most of the extra reads. The game mostly (or exclusively) does them when it starts up now, instead of doing them near-constantly.

Re: Fix Killing Floor 2 Server High I/O, Hard Drive usage custom maps

Interesting! The beta also mostly fixes this, but possibly the two could be combined for the best results. Did you notice any side effects?

Re: Large Red FX Letters

This isn't a game that we support in our managed system, so I'll move this post to the dedicated servers forum. We're also familiar with running servers for this game and I did not know that the files were available for it. If you have privately-distributed files, have you tried connecting with your...

Re: PHP FTP access on Managed VDS

Nope, we don't set pasv_min_port or pasv_max_port for gameserver vsftpd installations. This means that by default it will "use any port". And, all ports are let through the firewall on our end. Since the game server VDS is multihomed, the explanation that you found of the FTP server returning an une...

Re: PHP FTP access on Managed VDS

We don't use a NAT, proxy, or stateful firewall on game hosting machines and the FTP traffic is let right on through, completely unmolested, across all port ranges, so there aren't any firewall settings to twiddle on that side. I hope the setting change works for you. If it does, it sounds like you ...

Re: PHP FTP access on Managed VDS

We aren't using any sort of proxying setup on our end, no. FTP connections go straight through to the actual machine. If you're running your PHP queries though a NAT or have an unusual firewall configuration, though, those might be factors. Some sources suggest that this error can occur if the serve...

Re: Backup script stopped being able to write to my VDS

Difficult to say from here since we don't appear to control the software on either end of what you're doing, but since it started after you updated the system, you might try rolling back some of the updates. Having a connection refused error on a passive port like this would suggest that vsftpd is n...

What about NVMe?

NVMe is a faster interface between SSD storage and the processor/memory. An SSD running on the fastest SATA interface will top out at a random write rate of around 500 MB/s, while a similar drive, from the same manufacturer and running on an NVMe interface, might write at 2,500 MB/s. Since both type...

How do server-grade CPUs compare to consumer-grade ones?

We use Xeon E-series CPUs here at NFO instead of the consumer-side chip equivalents for a few reasons: - They use ECC memory, which is important for preventing crashes (both application and OS crashes). Random bit flips in non-ECC memory are suprisingly common -- Google found that 8% of DIMMs were a...

Windows 2016/2019 now available, along with E-2186G machines

Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2019 are now available as options for virtual machine customers. If you have an existing VDS and are looking to switch, you can back up your files and then use the re-imaging tool on the "Server control" page of our control panel. We have a few E-2186G machines...

Re: IPS to myBB Conversion

I'm not familiar with your import process specifically, but it seems that MyBB set up the database to require that the "pid" value be an integer. Your import script doesn't seem to be handling that properly. It could be that it should be setting it to NULL instead of '', or that the pid should be se...

Re: Haloce SAPP versión?

We are not allowed to include SAPP by default or with an autoinstaller due to how it is licensed. You should, however, be able to install it yourself through the server FTP. We also offer an autoinstaller for Gandanur, which we generally recommend over SAPP. The version of Gandanur that we include a...

Re: Explain the installation of the SAPP in the FTP. HaloCE

strings.dll is a special case and explicitly allowed to be deleted and replaced in our system, allowing you to install this or other modifications. You would just need to stop the server before deleting it. You would not be able to delete haloce.exe. I have not experimented with SAPP recently. Previ...
