TibiaData application for Android retired

We have decided to retire our Android application for now and focus more on the API itself.

But don’t be sad, there is one great application out there, which started based on our API and have added more features over the years.

TibiaLive by Nohus and the link to Google Play is here:

Ongoing disturbances in our API

We had some disturbances regarding the API to requests being truncated.

The reason for this was performance issues on the server due to an ongoing DDoS attack resulting in disk getting faster full than expected. The implemented monitoring did warn faulty, but that is luckily sorted out now.

Now everything seems to be back online as supposed and requests are coming in as expected, even tho we have more thank 1000+ requests per second coming in, but they are handled right now without impacting the service.
Sorry for that 🙂

Kind regards,
Tobias

Maintenance of our server

Hi there,

Our hosting provider DigitalOcean will make a routine maintenance on the physical machine where we are hosting our load-balancer service on.

There is a little impact by this maintenance, which may be a few minutes of increased latency as well as small amounts of packet loss while they shift traffic to redundant devices. They will endeavor to keep this to a minimum for the duration of the change.

Start: 2020-03-24 23:00:00 (UTC)

Ongoing disturbances in our API

We had some disturbances regarding the API to be offline for a short period including an SSL cert to be faulty.

The reason for this was that I was trying to implement a load-balancer to offload SSL termination from the API, but there was an unexpected period of DNS info cached and the load-balancer did not handle the requests properly.

Now everything is back in place as supposed and requests are rattling as normal.
Sorry for that 🙂

Kind regards,
Tobias
