Second Life Update 2020-10

Problems

There are reports of increased TP and other crossing failures. At this point some user groups have estimates 1 in 3 TPs fail. It is unclear if these are purely cloud-to-cloud, cloud-to-data-center, or data-center-to- data-center.

There are rumors that the problem is the Max Bandwidth setting in the viewer. There is no factual data to back that up. Since Max Bandwidth ONLY affects the UDP data transfer and the crossing information travels by HTTP channels this is highly unlikely. So, don’t go with the rumors.

The 1,500 limit for Max Bandwidth recommended by the Firestorm Devs since forever is getting updated to 3,000.

Legacy Profiles from the cloud are way slow. Oz Linden is recommending we try the RC Viewer

World Map has been way slow loading map tiles. Over the last month or so I have found it highly annoying. Maz says that should be fixed in this cloud-server version. My quick test today suggests that is true.

Script Timing is said to have changed for cloud servers. Not official and the Lindens will be looking at it.

Estate Bans are lagging, taking 60 to 90 seconds to kick in. If you are being griefed, that is a LONG time.
