All,As part of ongoing much needed system maintenance on the Empire, I will be taking the next step tonight.Tonight I will start with SMP9 and Utopia, at 1AM EST (Saturday Morning).Downtime can be expected to be 30 mins to 3 hours, but will complete it as fast as possible.During this time SMP9 and Utopia will be unavailable, but every other SMP will be open. I will work to get Utopia up first for the supporters.Once this is completed, we will then be doing the rest in the next week, so there will be many maintenance periods as I move the servers files around to different machines and rebuild the servers up.Reason for Maintenance:Rebuild Server OS to Ubuntu, as I am not that familiar with CentOS it is currently installed on. For stability and peace of mind, I need to be comfortable with the servers I am managing... CentOS was chosen by Justin before I took over things.Prepare for hardware condensing. The goal is to reduce our hardware count to lower costs. Utopia will now be on its final home, but going to re-group the servers to be 123, 456, 789 instead of 12,34,56,78,9u This will not put us at increased risk of lag. The lag spikes EMC has today is based on extreme conditions such as tile entity counts, and is not something that can be solved by "more hardware" anyways. It can only be solved with improvements to the code and policy (like entity limiter)Correct a configuration issue with dynmap folder. It's currently saving files to the SSD, decreasing the life span of the SSD when it shouldn't be.
