I'm doing some infrastructure work for TADS 3 web servers, and I need some help testing out the geolocation code.

Can you browse to http://gs.tads.io/test.php and let me know if it matches you to a server that seems way off?

For the purposes of this test, treat this map as the frame of reference. North America west is California and Asia/Pacific east is Australia.

The eventual plan is to have a lot of small servers running behind the gs.tads.io name, which will redirect player sessions to the nearest one. This is different from the approach IFDB takes; it doesn't (yet) treat location as a factor when picking a server.

I'd also like to make it as easy as possible for authors to add a server to this network, with no knowledge of Linux or web servers required. If that's something you're interested in, please let me know. I could really use volunteers to run through the process and give me feedback.

From TekSavvy in Toronto I was slotted into North America (east).

It works for me (Europe, central).

OK, new test.

Launch Return to Ditch Day and let me know if:

1) The interface feels responsive, and
2) You prefer one of the other servers instead.

Servers:

(na-east and na-west are each backed by two servers, so your results may differ slightly between trials.)

The ap-west and ap-east links above point to Singapore and Tokyo respectively. Can you let me know which one is better for Australia?

Reasonably responsive with my default server, which I guess is na-west. Output arrives in 1 second or so.

Averaging about two seconds, so decent. It felt a lot better than when Nikos had his test server in Greece :).

I got much better response time than George reports from na-east, less than 1/2 second between turns fer sure. I tried going far afield to ap-east and got much slower responses (as expected).

Barely noticeable lag for me. (<1s) I'm in Sweden, and the first test placed me in central Europe.

From central Europe the typical timings of each HTTP request is as follows (please note that typical game turn consists of 4 requests so you must multiply by 4 to get an actual response time):

  • na-east 240 ms
  • na-west 385 ms
  • eu-west 115 ms
  • ap-west 580 ms
  • ap-east 630 ms

Just noticeable lag in na-east, except when there's a disambiguation -- then I'd say maybe about half a second. (My computer/internet connection is often kind of laggy anyway.)
