I completed updating the launcher script to wrapper the minecraft server instance with screen rather than tmux. Hoping to see if it resolves an issue with losing interactive access to the console during certain java exception events. If I see the same behavior with screen I’ll need to investigate the way we launch java itself under this condition.
Additional hardware has been order to replace the OS of the hypervisor with an SSD drive and to add an additional dedicated NIC for some of the high network traffic VMs. Parts should be in within the next few days. Downtime shouldn’t be more than an hour or two depending on how much things fight me.
