Conference Kick-Off Final Load Test Today at 12PM PDT!

Welcome to the final kick-off load test of the OpenSimulator Community Conference 2013!

Today we will be hosting the last load test before the conference, inviting the OpenSimulator community and conference attendees to join us for one last opportunity to kick the tires of the conference grid before the start of the conference on Saturday!

Previous load testers should note that access controls have been turned on on the conference grid, so we’re asking everyone to teleport to the main conference grid URL of http://cc.opensimulator.org:8002 so we can test the routing and access control mechanisms.

When you arrive on the conference grid, you should land on the Expo Zone 1 region, and then as long as you are a member of the OSCC Load Testers group, you should be able to teleport over to the Keynote regions.  If you aren’t a member of the OSCC Load Testers group, just do a search for groups and join to participate in the load test.

Full login instructions for attendees can be found on the Login page, and for others who wish to participate, see the instructions below.  Our many, many thanks to all of you who have helped with load tests over the past few months, we’re looking forward to a terrific conference – thanks to you!

 

Participating in Weekly Load Tests if You Have an HG Acct

The OpenSimulator Community Conference grid is located in the 7000,7000 coordinate range, and the four keynote regions we’ll be testing are:

cc.opensimulator.org:8002:Keynote 1
cc.opensimulator.org:8002:Keynote 2
cc.opensimulator.org:8002:Keynote 3
cc.opensimulator.org:8002:Keynote 4

We recommend using the OSCC Viewer or another viewer that can support voice and mesh, such as SingularityFirestorm, or Kokua.

If you already have an account on another OpenSimulator grid that is hypergrid enabled, here are the steps to participate in the load test:

1.  Log into your account on your hypergrid enabled grid.

2.  If necessary, navigate to a jump region that can reach a destination in the 7000,7000 coordinate range.  OSGrid provides public jump regions for this purpose, see the list at http://www.osgrid.org/index.php/hypergrid.

3.  Open your map and search for one of the following destination regions:

cc.opensimulator.org:8002:Keynote 1
cc.opensimulator.org:8002:Keynote 2
cc.opensimulator.org:8002:Keynote 3
cc.opensimulator.org:8002:Keynote 4

4.  The map search should locate the destination region on the map, then click the Teleport button.  If you find that the first region you try is full please use the next address on the list and so on.

Participating in Weekly Load Tests if you Need an HG Acct

If you don’t already have an account on another OpenSimulator grid that is hypergrid enabled, here are the steps to participate in the load test:

1.  Create an account on a HyperGrid enabled grid.  The conference is not associated with any particular grid, but here are some suggestions for public grids that are usually stable and generally have 24/7 uptime:

OSGrid at http://www.osgrid.org/index.php/auth/register
FleepGrid at http://fleepgrid.com:8002/wifi/user/account/
FrancoGrid at http://www.francogrid.org/user/register  (French)

2.  Download and install the OSCC Viewer or a third party viewer that supports mesh, Media on a Prim (MOAP), and Vivox voice.  We recommend SingularityFirestorm, or Kokua.

3.  Log into your account on whatever grid you chose, and then open your map and search for one of the following destination regions:

cc.opensimulator.org:8002:Keynote 1
cc.opensimulator.org:8002:Keynote 2
cc.opensimulator.org:8002:Keynote 3
cc.opensimulator.org:8002:Keynote 4

4.  The map search should locate the destination region on the map, then click the Teleport button.  If you find that the first region you try is full please use the next address on the list and so on.
