Weekly Maintenance

Last Updated: 2022-02-01

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

  • World saves every 15 minutes that ensure that world chunks are saved to the hard disk.
  • Server restarts every day that refresh the server’s memory and keep the server performing optimally.
  • Offsite backups every day that ensure that there is a separate copy of all world data available in the event that our dedicated server machine experiences catastrophic data loss.
    • The offsite backup runs for approximately 10 to 20 minutes.
    • The backup is incremental, meaning it only transfers files changed since the last backup.
  • Full dynmap renders every week for Lab, Games, and Map worlds only.
    • These dynmap renders can take up to a few hours to complete. Expect lag and lower TPS while the render is running.
    • The Old, Space, and Staff worlds are only locally rendered upon request.
    • The New World is only fully rendered approximately once a year. The full render is rendered on a separate machine offsite and then transferred on to the server.
