Dat-o-Matic Throttled

Post by Good_King_Applesauce » 01 Apr 2018 15:03

I'm trying to use the Dat-o-Matic and I get "Requests to the server have been temporarily throttled. A couple of services may be down, please be patient. (Datting PS3_EPSN) Sleep minutes: 5"

I wait a couple of hours and the message still pops up. Is there something I'm doing wrong, or is this a site issue?

Thanks.

no issue, DOM is just flooded by edits and it auto-locks blocking bots and people downloading datfiles while they are edited.
(sleep minutes are reset after each edit)

These lockouts often last for hours. I basically can't use the site until after midnight anymore, and sometimes not even then.

That's because recently we are working the whole day on db.
I'm not happy of the actual solution and I think I can change it (enabling browsing but delaying downloads).
But, please consider this is a hobby project on a shared hosting service, flooded by bots that for example download a datfile at every edit. If we do 500 edits, then I log 500 downloads immediately. Queries and bandwidth are a cost for the project.
I am sure that after some weeks omonim and the other datters (including me: I've added more than 400 dlc -
thanks to hbbb) will destroy their brains and DOM will return quiet as before...

Today or tomorrow I will change this: edits on a system won't lock whole DOM but only delays the download of only the system which we are editing.

I LOVE that change, so thank you for doing it!

Hiding the DL links every time a DAT updates always made me a little pissed, haha! :P
