Weekly Maintenance


Last Updated: 2021-06-22

This is the current schedule of automated daily and weekly maintenance tasks that are run on the server. These tasks include:

  • Server restarts every day to refresh the server’s memory and keep the server performing optimally.
  • Offsite backups every few days to ensure there is a separate copy of all world data available in the event that the dedicated server machine experiences catastrophic data loss.
    • This backup takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes to complete.
  • Full dynmap renders every week for all worlds except for the New World.
    • These dynmap renders can take up to a few hours to complete. Expect lag and lower TPS while the render is running.
    • The New World is only fully rendered approximately every 6 months. The full render is rendered on a separate machine offsite and then transferred on to the server.
