Stats Updated Every 30 Minutes

As a temporary fix to the bug that caused the tracking problem a few days ago, the stats will now be updated every 30 minutes. A new way of grabbing data from the backend servers is being worked out now to permanently fix the issue, regardless of traffic. The reason that the stats broke was that there was a surge of traffic which caused the script to grab the stats to die due to excessive data being copied to the frontend server. Since the script never finished, it kept trying and trying till it was manually fixed. Having the stats update more often will fix the symptom. The actual cure will be installed in a few days.

As a reminder, we've got a July contest running! »http://www.aseadnet.com/news.php?id=111 Win an Apple iPod Touch!

Click Graphs, Tracking Off Today

There was a slight error transferring stats from the backend servers to the front end database that occurred sometime last night. This caused clicks to be multiplied. The tracking reports should show fairly accurate data, but the graphs will be off until the data can be cleansed (if it can). This will have no bearing on revenue reports and no clicks have been lost. The error has been corrected.

Edit: The data should be correct for the clicks, maybe not for views. Expect little traffic over the holiday weekend as well and have a good 4th of July!

Fixed Minor Bug

The issue I highlighted in the edit below might have been a problem with the current update routine as well. I have updated it to fix the issue, regardless.

There would be no error in tracking clicks, but your ad views may be increased (very tiny amount) if you got caught in this slight bug. Nevertheless, it is good there is another server so these regressions can be ironed out.

I'm very sorry about this. I know some of your use Adnet as a hit counter as well. This should fix up any issues that may have occurred. If you notice anything weird or strange, just let me know and it shall be taken care of.
