Procon crashes

Recommended Posts

Hi,
I run my own layer on a VM (3 cores, 8GB) and my SQL database is also running on this VM. I also have Ty_ger07's stats page running on another machine. I have some issues with this setup. A few times a day (although some days it runs fine), Procon will crash or start looping. On the VM I find it 'No Longer Works' or it is unresponsive using 98% CPU. It is fine after restart. I also see HD activity spiking 100% for prolonged periods but unable to find the process responsible (I suspect XAMPP MySQL but it does not show in task manager).

Nothing else is running on the VM. I am looking for options to debug the crashes. Any advice? Is it better to run the MySQL on a different server? Any experiences with the stats page being attacked causing MySQL to refuse connections (I had this yesterday, my plugins got disabled and were unable to connect (MySqlException (0x80004005): Host '195.201.183.204' is blocked because of many connection errors; unblock with 'mysqladmin flush-hosts') ? I have no clue how this situation could arise...
My hat off for your thoughts, thank you.

You might be hitting the limits for MySQL connections.

Try changing the max connections to something higher in the file /etc/mysql/my.cnf

max_connections = 300

Still crashes on a daily basis. I am trying to run my layer with procon.console.exe now, it gives much better response in my client. But still it decides to just give up on me every now and then. Resource consumption is fairly stable and low. It does produce these messages every few seconds though:

How to get rid of those messages? What is it that causes them? Are they just the commands sent by procon I can see in my console log? And is there any option to debug the crashes or better still, to try and prevent them? Thanks for your advice!

I don't know why it crashes, but I have seen those messages. I think it comes from a plugin but I don't know which one. Windows can monitor the procon service exe and restart it if it crashes.

Well, eh there should be a Debug.txt or dump (smth like that) in the main folder of PRoCon that contains the exception that caused the crash?

Yeah probably a plugin. Plugins can write to that interface if I remember correct.

Hi Tony, it will be difficult to solve the problem with crashes, because many of the plugin developers do not, but if you not have whatchdog for procon process, you can stat layer as service 

open CMD and

Sc create Procon01 binPath=D:\Procon\PRoCon.Service.exe DisplayName=Procon01

then go to Services and set

Now, when layer crash, system will restart it automatically.

    • 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.
