Let me get this straight...Gixen asks if you want to pay a tiny fee to mirror your snipes in case of an UNCONTROLLABLE, THIRD-PARTY network issue, you say no, then you get mad when there's a network issue and your snipe doesn't fire?

LOL

Awesome service, happy Mirror subscriber here.

My two cents: I was network analyst in the past, and trust me, no network proves to be 100% reliable, even the ones using Cisco devices Wink

To name few: power outage due to failure of UPS, crashed routing protocol, flooding of routing tables, a moron that forgets to save a config and reloads the device and so on ... All these can make simple snips fails - and it still surprises me that these issues are quite rare (but do eventually happens).

trickeone,

Was this snipe Mirrored, if so what was the status on the Mirror tab ?


Unfortunately, I have to use groups to make sure I don't end up with more than one winning bids. It would be great if these could be mirrored when there is a failure

That's expected behaviour, and good to hear mirror submitted your bid, despite being outbid. This is exactly the kind of situation because of which Mirror exists.

I received an update from the collocation facility:

After some investigation by the uplink provider, they determined that unusually high traffic patterns on our connection was triggering an automatic shut down of the uplink port. This caused intermittent outages and slowdowns for our customers. We had to coordinate with the provider to determine the source of the traffic and limit it. Steps are being taken to eliminate any future occurrence.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this issue. Improvements are being made to this location to improve availability, bandwidth and monitoring.


I have never seen something like this happen before. Another example that one cannot count on a single server to work 100% of the time.

mojotron17, please email me the item number, or post here if not confidential. Mirror worked fine during this time, the only thing that comes to my mind is that it was a group snipe - group snipes are not copied over to mirror.

The facility in which Gixen main server is located is experiencing intermittent problems that cause some snipes to fail with "NETWORK ERROR" message.

The ISP is working to fix this problem. Due to this you may also experience slowness in the forum, as forum database is in the same facility.

Gixen Mirror server is not affected by this.
