Scanner Rewrite Complete, and Plan For Tomorrow

By Rich Stone, 6 years ago
Yo TAers!

The re-written scanners have been trundling away for 48 hours now and all the data looks pretty good so far.

There's a couple of things that still need to be sorted, such as the game images on new games and the DLC for Red Dead, but I have ideas for sorting those soon.

As you might remember, I took tomorrow off work to allow for extra scanner work should it be required. I'm going to use that time instead to move the database onto the new server I ordered a couple of weeks ago.

This server should be faster than the existing one, so I'm hoping we can see some immediate performance increase when I put it live - the site's been a lot slower recently and I think that's down to amount of data we now have.

Unfortunately, switching servers means more downtime, so I'm planning on doing that at 11am BST tomorrow morning. I expect it will take about 2 hours.

See you on the other side!
