Jokelben 2.0 / 2.1 Server Updates

Post by SunLover »

Image

I have some good news about the Jokelben server. With over 1,500 registered users, the download demand has increased quite a bit, especially with so many people sheltering in place. To help balance the demand and hopefully offset server downtime, I have launched a mirror Jokelben server, also hosted on pcloud! This mirror site contains all the shows and content as the main site and you download just as you normally do.

Simply logon to the Jokelben Portal Page as usual. You will now see two server access points and their current status on the Server Info page. Select either server as it is available, and browse the shows.

There may be times when I take one of the servers offline to balance the load a bit, in case bandwidth starts to get high on one of them. The only time both servers would be unavailable is if download bandwidth is exceeded on both. In that case, we will simply have to wait until the billing cycle resets.

I hope this helps avoid any downtime due to bandwidth issues. I know it's annoying when you can't get the shows you want, so hopefully, this will help with demand. A good idea is download the shows you know you will watch at that time, then come back later and get other shows you want. As Jimmy says, "you just gotta pace yourselves" with the downloads.

As soon as Sunlover has time to do uploading he has a small backlog of both audio and video recordings to upload

I hadnt been on the server in awhile. The last time was before the upgrade. Now I havent been able to get to either server as they say they are all at capacity. Does it ever open up or is it just luck of the draw to get in at some point? The old server never did this so just looking for an update!

I posted an update in separate post that can be found here:

viewtopic.php?f=29&t=101185

The servers are hosted at a company called pCloud and the hosting account has a bandwidth limit for each server. When the bandwidth limit is exceeded the server is locked down. Sunlover who owns the server created the second server known as jokelben 2.1 to try an avoid the bandwidth issue but apparently both servers limits were exceeded resulting in both servers being locked down. These lock downs of the servers are the result of what I have termed "binge downloading" or large volume downloading. This means people downloading a large number of concert audio recordings or video recordings at one time rather than just 1 or 2 shows at a time.

Unfortunately the servers will remain locked down until the next billing cycle for the pCloud account starts on June 18 at which point both servers will be accessible again.

Folks, please follow the instructions and download one show at a time. Violating this makes it impossible for the rest of us to access the library, and for SunLover to add to it.
Don't try to describe the ocean if you've never seen it.
