Well it happened. Our servers for Power Plants that offer ready access to performance data, scheduling, zone naming, etc. has given up the ghost and we’ve had to shut 'er down. Probably be done for some time as we rebuild it as well as rebuild the programming that operates it.
With more than 1,000 queries from Power Plants each second, 24 hours a day, from all over the world, it just got to be too much. So now we’re rolling our programming sleeves up and redesigning the back end of PowerPlay and new servers to accommodate. This will not detract from the current workload of DMP or the server (we have multiple programmers )
What this means is fairly simple. Long time performance data and logging will be gone until the new servers are online. Also, scheduling is gone as well. Those said, everything else will be available locally. You can access the Power Plant’s internal webpage by simply typing in the Power Plant’s IP address. Once there you can name your zones, turn on and off zones.
Performance will be unaffected. If you need instructions how to access the internal web control page go here: http://powerplay.psaudio.com/ and you’ll see instructions.
We hope to have PowerPlay back up and running sometime in September.
