More importantly, how much time is left of the 10hours???

Edit: seems like we've got around 5 hours left of downtime, whereas it's just gone lunch time in Europe so it's going to eat into prime time today

Re: 10 Hours Maintenance Downtime? Perhaps something big?


Nice one desertstorm lol. I bet they've got some hefty server clusters running things back there. More like adding 2TB RAM lol. It seems to me they just cant handle the player numbers on PS1 now lots of the vets have come back. They've probably scaled down the server capability over the years due to the drop in player numbers. The ping time to EU has also been appawling this week.
I believe 10hrs downtime = 17:30 GMT will be back up.

I'm hoping they've taken down the systems to fork in a new/revised launchpad and login systems for Planetside2 beta testers.
Anyone seen any hints or comments from the devs what the downtime is for. The SOE Dev desciprtion is completely generic, which is odd for them.

I'm thinking something kinda seriously bad has happened to the PS1 database. Usual maintenance takes less than an hour.

So either a database hardware failure or some type of data corruption due to today's event. Most likely due to data corruption they are doing a database restore from earlier today, which could take the 10 or so hours given.

It must have been a great Old Oshur event! Too bad I missed it ;(

The PlanetSide servers will go offline tonight, Saturday, July 7th at 11:30 PM Pacific Time for maintenance. Downtime is anticipated to be approximately 10 hours.
It's 5AM PST now, so another ~4.5 hours to go.

Hes Kidding.

Either migrating the whole server, Or a large upgrade. Dont forgot its sunday so staff are not in work. So 10 hours and then 2 hours for someone to pop in and sort it out.

Don't get your hopes up. The server got seriously jacked up last night. That's all it is.

See Virragos reply, they are updating hardware.


Because of the 10 hour downtime, i assume its quite a big upgrade. Good stuff. :>
