tracker update at leech.ie

Posted on Jun 21, 2021

so the last 4-6 weeks i’ve been having maintenance issues [1, 2, 3] with the trackers at leech.ie. in short, chihaya was getting OOM killed and i couldn’t figure out why.
after a few weeks of testing downgrades, config changes, tweaking other services - i’ve decided to upgrade. this also comes with a bit of a change though.

this was the old setup:

udp://t1.leech.ie:1337/announce
udp://t2.leech.ie:1337/announce
udp://t3.leech.ie:1337/announce

this is the new setup

udp://tracker.leech.ie:1337/announce

so i’m changing it from three trackers to one, and upgrading the server. this also means no more trackers located in the US. don’t forget to update your torrents, the DNS record for t1.leech.ie will stay in place for a few weeks to minimise impact.

i’m pretty confident this will resolve the recent stability issues, let’s wait and see!
