The performance on the rankings pages have been shaky recently; on several occasions causing serious performance degradation on dustkid which led to the rankings being updated far less; with some long stretches where there were no automated updates running.
I have updated how rankings our calculated and I believe these performance issues should not be a problem going forward. I have currently set rankings to update every hour; I will probably increase this to every half hour assuming the resource usage looks as it currently does. In addition; I’ve made the following updates to the rankings page
- Rankings are generated for the main levels, cmp levels, and backwards levels.
- You can choose what leaderboard type you want to view (e.g. apple, no dash, etc…)
- Custom leaderboards show best apples, dashes, jumps totals when getting S completion (might drop it and just go any%). 32 dashes or jumps are added to your total if you don’t have a record on a given IL.
- Page shows the time that the rankings were last updated
