On just our 64p sever it looks like Insane Limits is issuing over 90,000 player.idleDuration commands in a 24 hour period. I verified it was Insane Limits by setting debug to 10 and watching the log:

 

[00:44:00] [insane Limits] Updating idle duration for: Player-Name

The 90,000 commands being issued represent almost 1/3 of all commands being issued in a given day (615670 total lines in log file, 307000 'ok'). This leaves aprox 308600 commands issued per day. 90,000 of those are just idleDuration.

 

 

Is there any way to disable idle duration from being requested unless it's being used by a limit?

dyn,

From my review of the .cs file, you may be correct. there appears to be two places where IdleDuration is/could be executed.

 

The first is in a C# function called "CheckPlayerIdle", which gets it locally to the function and then resets it back to zero immediatel after. However, this function does not seem to be called from anywhere, so I am guessing that is not the culprit.

 

The second is in a function called "UpdateExtraInfo" which iterates thru a list of players to update each one's stored server idle value (I didn't dig into why, how, or if each player's idle time is used).

 

So at a very preliminary glance IdleDuration does not seem necessary and starts to look that it could be remove from source code, but much more research into falling the potential call stack or the current author would be required to be certain anything could be removed.

This is all the same underlying problem. Insane Limits asks Battlelog Cache to do something and then waits 30 seconds. It doesn't get an answer back within 30 seconds and gives up with an error, then some time later the answer it asked for finally shows up, but by that time it's moved on, thus the warning.

 

So again, setting wait_timeout to 61 should help. It won't eliminate the errors, nothing will. Battlelog is just being very slow for you, which is not unusual. Dont try setting wait_timeout above 90, that just causes other problems.

Do you have a lot of idle players? Because the command isn't sent for every player, only those with 0 score and 0 deaths:

 

Code:

if ((cpiPlayer.Score == 0 || Double.IsNaN(cpiPlayer.Score)) && cpiPlayer.Deaths == 0) {
                    DebugWrite("Updating idle duration for: " + cpiPlayer.SoldierName, 5);
                    ServerCommand("player.idleDuration", cpiPlayer.SoldierName); // Update it
                }
How about as an experiment you comment out the ServerCommand above? Like this:

Code:

if ((cpiPlayer.Score == 0 || Double.IsNaN(cpiPlayer.Score)) && cpiPlayer.Deaths == 0) {
                    DebugWrite("Updating idle duration for: " + cpiPlayer.SoldierName, 5);
                    //ServerCommand("player.idleDuration", cpiPlayer.SoldierName); // Update it
                }
I bet you will continue to see idleDuration commands. While IL certainly does issue the command, I can't imagine an actual game server situation that would result in 90k commands in 24 hours. The update happens every 30 seconds, so that means you'd had to have 90000 / (24 * 60 * 2) = 31.25 idle players every 30 seconds. It doesn't add up. Some other plugin is issuing the command and at a far higher rate than IL. Or, cpiPlayer info is bogus and a bunch of players who are not idle are getting to the plugin as 0 score, 0 deaths (extremely unlikely, but I guess not impossible).

 

EDIT: There is another possibility. If the listPlayers event is happening 5x to 10x more often than twice a minute, then it might be IL. IL does generate the event more frequently than every 30 seconds under certain circumstances, but not 5x to 10x more. That's every 3 to 6 seconds.

I don't see anything specific about Insane Limits in there. Maybe you are having a more general Procon issue? Perhaps copy your post to the Bugs forum?

Looks like the fix worked!

 

After making the change going on ~3 hours not a single player.idleDuration command has been sent. The previous 20 hours before making the change? 61,000 player.idleDuration commands were issued to just one server.

 

 

That just eliminated hundreds of thousands of commands which were being sent across all of our servers! Thanks :ohmy:

No, stats are still being fetched. Just checked that with an empty BL Cache DB.

 

EDIT: Although....

 

Weaponstats seem to stay NULL for all records... but the weaponstats fetch link still works...

May take some extra time to fetch the weapon and vehicle stats because I cleared the DB.

Er, that is not the outcome I was expecting. I just meant for this to confirm that it was NOT IL, not to actually fix anything.

 

If you want an actual fix for Insane Limits, make this change instead. Note that the ServerCommand line is uncommented.

 

Code:

if (itIsTime && (cpiPlayer.Score == 0 || Double.IsNaN(cpiPlayer.Score)) && cpiPlayer.Deaths == 0) {
                    DebugWrite("Updating idle duration for: " + cpiPlayer.SoldierName, 5);
                    ServerCommand("player.idleDuration", cpiPlayer.SoldierName); // Update it
                }
That change will be in the next patch of IL, 9.11.

 

That should drastically reduce the frequency of the command, and, if you still don't like the frequency, you can reduce it further by changing your update_interval setting more than 60 seconds.

Did you enter or change any limits? Maybe copied a new one or recopied some old ones? Because the error comes from the very last line missing a semi-colon ...

 

Code:

return false;
Should have nothing to do with the update. I tried your code, plus the missing semi-colon, on the 9.11 version and it compiled fine.

Insane Limits is one of the integral tools that makes limits I've created on my servers, perhaps, the most unique in the BF3 universe, not to mention, probably the only truly AUTO-Admin'ed server.

 

I am going to institute a game round rotation, i.e. with different rules and limits, say, every 3rd round.

In order to do this, I want to create an irregular rotation. I want it "keep it interesting and appear unpredictable".Also I want each variant of map to experience the rules periodically. Too achieve these goals, it is vital, that the interval, in this example 3, NOT be a multiple of the total number of maps/rounds.

 

For example, on a 4 map in combination, it would go something like this: round (1, 2)-normal; 3-special; (4, 1)-normal; 2-special, etc.

 

To achieve this, I believe, it would require that I will need to save to and get access the a "place" (i.e ProconRulz has the "ini_" variable) where I can read/write persistent data that remains beyond a single round. After carefully, reviewing the InsaneLimits.cs file, I was able to find I can get current round info useful to my call in data like server.TotalRounds and server.MapIndex. Unfortunately, this gets me only 2 of the three parts I would need. The third is I would need to save and retrieve the server.MapIndex of the LAST round to have run using the special rules. Without this 3rd piece of data, I would be unable to institute an irregular rules rotation.

 

Is there anything already existing in InsaneLimits that would facilitate this? If no, would it be something you could incorporate quickly and/or painlessly? I would do it myself, but, since InsaneLimits is NOT a "no longer maintained" plugin, I run the risk of trouble when new versions/patches of InsaneLimits are released (case in point the newly release JUN-15 release, yesterday. Really, in this "special rules rotation" case, all I need to save/read is a single variable, "what_was the_map_index_of_the_last_special_rules_round" kind of data.

 

Hopefully,

Edward

    • Game Server Hosting:

      We're happy to announce that EZRCON will branch out into the game server provider scene. This is a big step for us so please having patience if something doesn't go right in this area. Now, what makes us different compared to other providers? Well, we're going with the idea of having a scaleable server hosting and providing more control in how you set up your server. For example, in Minecraft, you have the ability to control how many CPU cores you wish your server to have access to, how much RAM you want to use, how much disk space you want to use. This type of control can't be offered in a single service package so you're able to configure a custom package the way you want it.

      You can see all the available games here. Currently, we have the following games available.

      Valheim (From $1.50 USD)


      Rust (From $3.20 USD)


      Minecraft (Basic) (From $4.00 USD)


      Call of Duty 4X (From $7.00 USD)


      OpenTTD (From $4.00 USD)


      Squad (From $9.00 USD)


      Insurgency: Sandstorm (From $6.40 USD)


      Changes to US-East:

      Starting in January 2022, we will be moving to a different provider that has better support, better infrastructure, and better connectivity. We've noticed that the connection/routes to this location are not ideal and it's been hard getting support to correct this. Our contract for our two servers ends in March/April respectively. If you currently have servers in this location you will be migrated over to the new provider. We'll have more details when the time comes closer to January. The new location for this change will be based out of Atlanta, GA. If you have any questions/concerns please open a ticket and we'll do our best to answer them.

    • Hello All,

      I wanted to give an update to how EZRCON is doing. As of today we have 56 active customers using the services offered. I'm glad its doing so well and it hasn't been 1 year yet. To those that have services with EZRCON, I hope the service is doing well and if not please let us know so that we can improve it where possible. We've done quite a few changes behind the scenes to improve the performance hopefully. 

      We'll be launching a new location for hosting procon layers in either Los Angeles, USA or Chicago, IL. Still being decided on where the placement should be but these two locations are not set in stone yet. We would like to get feedback on where we should have a new location for hosting the Procon Layers, which you can do by replying to this topic. A poll will be created where people can vote on which location they would like to see.

      We're also looking for some suggestions on what else you would like to see for hosting provider options. So please let us know your thoughts on this matter.

    • Added ability to disable the new API check for player country info


      Updated GeoIP database file


      Removed usage sending stats


      Added EZRCON ad banner



      If you are upgrading then you may need to add these two lines to your existing installation in the file procon.cfg. To enable these options just change False to True.

      procon.private.options.UseGeoIpFileOnly False
      procon.private.options.BlockRssFeedNews False

    • I wanted I let you know that I am starting to build out the foundation for the hosting services that I talked about here. The pricing model I was originally going for wasn't going to be suitable for how I want to build it. So instead I decided to offer each service as it's own product instead of a package deal. In the future, hopefully, I will be able to do this and offer discounts to those that choose it.

      Here is how the pricing is laid out for each service as well as information about each. This is as of 7/12/2020.

      Single MySQL database (up to 30 GB) is $10 USD per month.



      If you go over the 30 GB usage for the database then each additional gigabyte is charged at $0.10 USD each billing cycle. If you're under 30GB you don't need to worry about this.


      Databases are replicated across 3 zones (regions) for redundancy. One (1) on the east coast of the USA, One (1) in Frankfurt, and One (1) in Singapore. Depending on the demand, this would grow to more regions.


      Databases will also be backed up daily and retained for 7 days.




      Procon Layer will be $2 USD per month.


      Each layer will only allow one (1) game server connection. The reason behind this is for performance.


      Each layer will also come with all available plugins installed by default. This is to help facilitate faster deployments and get you up and running quickly.


      Each layer will automatically restart if Procon crashes. 


      Each layer will also automatically restart daily at midnight to make sure it stays in tip-top shape.


      Custom plugins can be installed by submitting a support ticket.




      Battlefield Admin Control Panel (BFACP) will be $5 USD per month


      As I am still working on building version 3 of the software, I will be installing the last version I did. Once I complete version 3 it will automatically be upgraded for you.





      All these services will be managed by me so you don't have to worry about the technical side of things to get up and going.

      If you would like to see how much it would cost for the services, I made a calculator that you can use. It can be found here https://ezrcon.com/calculator.html

    • I have pushed out a new minor release which updates the geodata pull (flags in the playerlisting). This should be way more accurate now. As always, please let me know if any problems show up.
