OpenSim Weekly News – week ending Saturday Nov 1st, 2008

Over the last two weeks, I have run a longer term test on Yang, Celt, Io, Europa, Phobos & Deimos on First with version r6917 for one week and then with version r6976 for one week. In both cases, the six regions had a total of 4 crashes each week. The four crashes were spread across different regions and appear to be unhandled exceptions. There is a reasonable, but slightly lower amount of traffic on these regions compared to Wright Plaza which is right next door. In fact, all logins to Wright Plaza also manifest themselves as child agent logins to Yang, so Yang does have significant activity.

Some search is now functional, thanks to Fly-Man, Homer Horwitz and Melanie. Additionally, Diva has implemented a “HyperGrid” notion that allows teleporting between OSGrid, UCIGrid and back. UCIGrid is the grid at University California, Irvine.

We have 45 LSL functions left to implment and they can all be found by searching the source for the string “NotImplemented” in the file LSL_Api.cs. Patches are greatly appreciated.

OSGrid has had a significant number of new users in the last week or so. We finished the week with 6000 users, 600 regions and about 1250 logins/day. It was necessary to increase the maximum number of simultaneous connections to the mysql process on the server from 10 to 1000, but the server appears to be handling this load well.
