BatMUD hardware - - - - - - - - The core services of BatMUD are currently running on three (3) x86 (64-bit) architecture based rack servers. There are also four (4) other, older 2U and 4U servers running some of the development & testing tasks, each with their own disk-subsystems. Server nicknamed "Rhino": - main game server ( o a DELL PowerEdge R630 (1U) server w/ redundant titanium power supplies o 2x Intel Xeon E5-2643 v4 3.40GHz w/ 20MB cache, 135W, 6C, 9.6GT/s QPI, Turbo o 256GB memory (16x 16GB 2400MHz Dual Rank x8 data width RDIMMs) o PERC H730P integrated raid controller, 2GB NV cache o eight (8) 200GB write intensive SSD MLC 12Gbps hot-plug drives (RAID-10) Server nicknamed "Moonrind": - secondary game server (, o a DELL PowerEdge R620 (1U) x8 Base server w/ redundant titanium power supply o 2x Intel Xeon E5-2643 v1 3.30GHz w/ 10MB Cache, 130W, 4C, 8.0GT/s QPI, Turbo o 128 GB memory (8x 16GB 1600MHz Dual Rank LV RDIMMs) o PERC H710p Integrated Raid Controller, 1GB NV Cache o two (2) 175GB PCIe SSD (SLC) Hotpluggable drives o four (4) 1.2TB SAS (10k RPM, 6Gbps) Hotpluggable drives (RAID-10) Server nicknamed "Ix'ixixiblat": - supporting server o a DELL PowerEdge 2950-III (2U size) server w/ redundant power supply o 2x Intel Quad-Core Xeon X5460 3.16GHz/2x6MB 1333FSB o 32GB 667MHz FBD (8x4GB dual rank DIMMs) o PERC 6/iR, Integrated Controller Card x6 backplane o four (4) 146GB SAS (15.000 rpm) 3.5-inch Hard Drives (RAID-10) o two (2) 1T SATA 3.5-inch Hard Drives (RAID-1) o MTRON Pro7000 32GB SSD 3.5-inch SATA DECOMMISSIONED HARDWARE: Server nicknamed "Torturer": o a DELL PowerEdge 2850 (2U size) server w/ two (redundant) power supplies o 2 x Intel Xeon 3.8GHz processors w/ 2MB L2 cache o 8GB DDR2 SDRAM 400MHz memory o a PERC 4e/DC U320 Dual-channel RAID w/ battery backup o six (6) 146GB U320 SCSI 15K RPM drives Server nicknamed "Baal": o Tyan Transport TA26 (2U size) server chassis w/ two redundant power supp. o 2 x AMD Opteron 250 (2.4GHz) 64-bit processors o 4GB DDR ECC REG 400MHz memory o LSI MegaRAID Ultra320 Dual-channel w/ battery backup o eight (8) Seagate Cheetah 15.3K ST336607LC 37GB drives Each of the disksystems utilize appropriate RAID setups varying from RAID-1 to RAID-10. The operating system base on both servers is Linux, as Solaris was used in the older server equipment (years ago). While more and more powerful solutions emerge into the market, B.A.T. ry feels strong responsibility in choosing the most reliable and also proven functional platfrom. New upgrade options are considered on basis of need, as such hardware options become available and have been thoroughly tested. Latest hardware changes: o 30-Oct-16 A new all-flash storage server nicknamed "Rhino" is being installed. This DELL PowerEdge R630 physically replaces the Torturer -server, but becomes the game's new main server. o 01-Sep-13 Game services were moved to Moonrind, a new DELL PowerEdge R620 -server. This change will decomission the old Torturer -server, while Ix'ixixiblat becomes the supporting server. o 24-Apr-08 Game services were moved to Ix'ixixiblat, a new DELL PowerEdge 2950 -server. o 01-Apr-06 Game services were moved to Torturer, the new DELL PowerEdge 2850 -server. Both HC and Bat now run on it, while Baal handles the other services. o 24-Mar-06 The servers Tiamat and Narcuul were moved out of "production" status and now act as development/testing systems. o 30-Oct-04 Baal! Our new machine is now in action. Tiamat (Tyan S2426 Thunder, 2xAthlon MP 2600+, 2GB ECC DDR, Mylex eXtremeRAID 2000, several Seagate Cheetah X15 drives, etc) is no longer the main game-server. o 26-Feb-03 Tiamat received Athlon MP 2600+ processors and Narcuul received Tiamat's 'old' Athlon MP 1900+ (1600MHz) ones o ??-Sep-02 Narcuul's 'old' motherboard was replaced by ASUS' A7M266-D o 16-Sep-02 the fourth 512MB chip of memory was finally added to Tiamat o 12-Feb-02 replaced 'old' (2) AMD Athlon K7 1200MHz -processors (on Tiamat) o **-Dec-01 the old SUN U60 was replaced with x86-based hardware B.A.T. ry
