Not quite eleven hours into Legion

Post by bringoutyourdead »

Looking at the database table shows 165 level 110 characters.

The Census display reports are showing old cached records... I might purge them... or not.. and we may have to wait for those pages to catch up.

I have 765 in my addon right now, although we're now 21 hours in, that's still a lot though!

Since I have not been an paying player for some time... I had not really paid attention to when the switch was enabled. I had assumed 00:00 PDT for all.

I am glad I got the DH mess cleaned up faster then I expected.. as it was .. I barely cleaned up before the deadline.

As of this minute.. site now knows about 982 characters at level 110.

It's always 00:00 CEST (or CET if in winter time) over here, so we get a headstart on you guys. I'll be uploading 1k+ lvl 110s shortly, and considering the amount of alt+F4s I've had to make with loadingscreen issues, that's either a heck of a lot of 110s or Censusplus is very good at holding on to data even when not exiting properly :lol:

As of a minute ago the site knows about 1132 level 110 characters.

I cleaned out %90 of the cached pages (about 100,000).. all older then Noon today server time.

Unfortunately.. the multitude of web spiders ( 7 to 10 different ones at any time) crawling over the site are regenerating them at about 100 pages a minute.

This should be my last report on this for the day.
As the week progresses the display of Realm census, Character history & Guild info will catch up with what we are reporting to the site.

Yesterday I was online for 10 minutes around 5:45.. There was several level 107 already.
I then played from 16:45 to 21:35, and had seen 4-500 level 110s..

Some might even have switched to levelling alts and not seen by my census (it currently takes over 2 hours to run),..

A high number of 110s is not impossible..

My clean out of cached files didn't do exactly what I wanted... so I have modified
http://www.warcraftrealms.com/census.php
to have a very short cache cycle.

This will put more stress on the site in the short term.. In a week or two as things settle down from the expansion pack rush, I will revert the code back to normal operations.

Census.php data is updated daily... I just haven't found out how :? :roll:

DBstats.php.. has been fixed and has the top level 110 characters updated hourly at the 44 minute mark.

New record for me :shock:

"[18:48:02]Census+ Finished Taking data. Found 1445 new characters and saw 11401. Took 2 Hr 19 Min."

At least, that I've noticed, not been paying attention to chat window while exploring so maybe failed to notice some even larger ones, but 11k? That's insane!

Well if you were doing the Alliance side it would not take much time at all.

Let see.. in the last month.. one out of every three characters seen on the realm is a Blood Elf, and one out of every three BElf are Demon Hunters.

Heh true indeed:

[23:57:12]Census+ Finished Taking data. Found 409 new characters and saw 409. Took 4 Min 54 Sec.

Although it's midnight now so a bit off-peak, I'd just finished an 8k found one on Horde, so the server's certainly not getting any less imbalanced... :?
