Scheduled Downtime this Afternoon!

Usage of the Manager is at an all-time high!

The last 30 days have been the Manager's busiest 30 days ever and, as we get closer to the alpha and beta releases of The Watcher, traffic is only going to increase.

Most of the recent increase of traffic has to do with the 1.5 release and represents new players getting into KD:M for the first time. Just to give you an idea about how many new players are trying out the Manager right now, there are currently 1052 registered users of the application, and 1291 of those registered in the last 30 days!

What's more, I recently learned from the front-end team that we've currently got over 1000 users registered for the beta release of The Watcher.

The bottom line is that performance has already been impacted by this increase in volume and it is time to resize the main production host and add some processor overhead.

Accordingly, there will be a brief downtime this afternoon during which the Manager will be totally unavailable. This should only last for a few minutes, but could go on as long as an hour.

As usual, I will check in here and on Twitter when I am able to issue the official all-clear.

Thanks for using the Manager!
