EveKit - Daily CSV snapshots moving to weekly

(salacious necrosis) #21

EveKit’s API for the SDE has just been upgraded to the 2019-02-19 SDE release. More details on the blog post here.

If EveKit has seemed less than fresh lately, that’s because the DB replica which serves data through the EveKit API stopped replicating about a week ago and I missed the alert. It’s back up again and starting to catch up but will take several hours to reflect the latest state.

Note that this is the replica, not the primary which is fine and has continued to collect your data as usual. In other words, we didn’t lose any data, we just weren’t serving the latest data in our queries.

Apologies for the outage.

As of this morning, the replica is now caught up and things should be back to normal. Apologies once again for the outage.

This morning we deployed a minor change to EveKit to pick up changes to the Fitting Item model in the latest ESI (as of 2019-03-25). The “flag” property of the Fitting Item model has been changed from an integer to an enumerated string type. Going forward, EveKit will populate the new enumerated values. As part of the update, we converted all historical Fitting Item models to the appropriate enumerated flag values. These updates will appear immediately in your data, and should appear in nightly snapshots over the next 24 hours.

EveKit has long had a feature where we produce a daily snapshot of all your data in CSV form. You can download this snapshot if you prefer to work with your data in spreadsheet form instead of through the web APIs.

This feature is rarely used. No one has downloaded a snapshot in several months and it doesn’t appear that anyone relies on this feature for anything critical. Therefore, we are moving the snapshot frequency to weekly instead of daily. We will continue to monitor usage and may eliminate the feature completely in the future.

This change will roll out sometime today. We’ll post again when the change is complete.
