Yesterday and today we’ve had a few networking hiccups with our server. Some of it was due to our internet service provider and some of it was due to us changing our networking equipment internally.
Nothing was wrong with our equipment it has all been working properly, just to make alterations we have had to take the network offline for brief periods.
As of this post everything is working fine and we are not planning any further changes to our network setup, it is now all optimised and upgraded.
For those curious we added a LAG setup to our server, switches, routers and other equipment which increases network redundancy and throughput. It wasn’t so much to improve our Minecraft performance as it was to lessen the impact of other tasks on the network affecting our servers network access.
