    The Sandlot will be transferring to a new server on Friday. The server will be offline for a minimum of 1 hour, with the potential to go much longer if something goes wrong. All servers will be taken offline at 7 PM Pacific/8 PM Arizona/10 PM Eastern on Friday, Feb. 12.

    With this new server, I am hoping that the performance will be improved slightly, and that we will experience fewer crashes. Our current hardware is the following:

    Intel Xeon-E 2136 - 6c/12t - 3.3GHz/4.5GHz CPU
    64 GB DDR4 ECC 2666 Mhz RAM
    2x500 GB NVMe SSD
    2x4 TB HDD SATA

    Our new hardware is the following:

    AMD Ryzen 7 3800X - 8c/16t - 3.9 GHz/4.5 GHz
    128 GB DDR4 ECC 2666 Mhz RAM
    2x960 GB NVMe SSD
    2x4 TB HDD SATA

    This will give us 2 extra CPU cores and a 600 MHz bump in non-turbo CPU clock speed, and a massive memory upgrade which is doubled to 128 GB.

    I will update this thread when maintenance begins, as well as informing everyone in game, and I will update this thread throughout the transfer with status updates.

    Do not worry--nothing is being reset!

    Thank you for your patience and understanding.

    Thank you c0w, for performing this upgrade!

    In addition to our all-volunteer staff, and our wonderful users who make Sandlot the safe, friendly environment for all ages that it is, I would also like to thank everybody who has been able to help support the Sandlot through their VIP donations. Those donations keep the Sandlot servers running, and are what make this upgrade possible.

    So, thank you everybody! :)

    Nice, @c0wg0d, good luck with the cutover hope all goes smoothly! That looks like a really nice upgrade and should give the Sandlot a little more breathing room.

    Ha! Sometimes you have to try new stuff and resize as needed. I think 1.16 was a big change for server requirements as well. But clearly the Sandlot needed more speed, more memory, more storage! Nothing can stop us now! :D
