Did you check Karthik's metaserver > too? I checked all 3. Next day (before 24h limit) it was removed from yours and Karthik's, while it was on Carlos' for more than 1-2 days. That's why I assumed Carlos' had no auto-clean feature and the other 2 removed it manually. So I still don't know whether or when all metaservers remove unreachable servers automatically. Apropos, the policy, which I quoted last time not to show servers which are empty for 6h, why is this good? When a server is not shown, how could it ever change its status when nobody knows how to get there to fill it up? When is "last_udapte" updated? Can "age" ever become > 6h purposefully (unlike dead solicitation servers as in my broken case [soon to be fixed])? -- © Rado S. -- You must provide YOUR effort for your goal!
