I just received this notice.
Code: Select all
Our logs indicate you are one of the people downloading data from the SD Data Direct service around the top of a midnight hour. You were probably trying to be nice and pick an underutilized time for both you and us, but guess what... many people had the same idea. Our top-of-the-hour load counts for U.S. midnight times are about 40 times our normal load! In addition, it hurts you too, because that's when our data is the least fresh. There is also no point in downloading multiple times a day. There are no longer any mid-day updates. The best thing to do is use your application's auto-schedule function (if it has it... MythTV does). That uses an API to obtain a suggested time to download. If you do want to pick a new time for a cron job, you can view the output of that function at http://schedulesdirect.org/getack To make it easier for you, here's a random time for your cron job: 16:16 (hour is 00-24 not am/pm) Please update your scheduled job. The worst thing you can do is keep it the way it is. If you any questions, you can contact us via the forum or at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have mythbackend running mythfilldatabase. In the 'Program Schedule Downloading Options' page, I have
[*] Automatically update program listings
[*]Guide data program execution start: 0
[*]Guid data program execution end: 23
[*]Run guid data program at time suggested by the grabber
I have also looked and I have no cron jobs that even run at midnight.
I am at a loss why mythtv would be pulling updates right at midnight and not using the suggested time.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
