    Minecraft RemoteToolkit
    -Less downtime, more fun for your players, more power to you!

    Are you a Minecraft server administrator? Do you value up-time and stability? Do you fancy the ability to remotely control your server, both in-game and out of game, in a myriad of useful ways from a plethora of different devices?
    If you answered yes to any of the above, then the Minecraft RemoteToolkit is for you!


    What the Minecraft RemoteToolkit Plugin and Wrapper do for you:
    • Provides almost perfect server uptime with no need for action from an owner/administrator!
    • Have your server save and restart at any time period with configurable restart warnings!
    • The Toolkit guarantees a restart within the set restart period, even if your server crashes, becomes unresponsive, or encounters a "SEVERE" exception!
    • Remotely control every function of the Toolkit, even from your smart phone!
    • Full remote console access via telnet with support for multiple terminal types!
    • Telnet daemon conforms to current Telnet related RFCs!
    • Customizable alert messages!
    • Fully extendable though 3rd party modules!
    • Full feature set works with most craftbukkit builds!
    • Most features work with any Minecraft server variation, even vanilla!
    • Telnet can be disabled!

    This was working perfectly until I updated to 1.7.9 and now the warnings for server restart do not display.

    BensDaMan Heartbeats are not the issue here. It seems like the bukkit process isn't starting correctly. Can you confirm if this is the case with earlier versions of bukkit?

    GodsDead I'll look into this ASAP.

    Actually yeah sorry it wasn't that, it seems to be a problem with another plugin that was halting the startup process.
    I forgot that the wrapper continued to display messages even if the server had crashed (silently)
    Thanks for your work, this is just the best Mod for Bukkit! :)

    There is a majour problem with Remotetoolkit R10_A14.5 causing constant crashes on Spigot 1.7.9 R02, Its caused by permgen space, I don't think remote toolkit is managing to pick up the changed permgen size and is causing havock, since disabling my crashes from permgen size have stopped.

    VladasX How are you trying to launch the toolkit?

    GodsDead Is the toolkit crashing, or is spigot crashing? Can you pastebin your copy of wrapper.properties?

    drdanick I sort it out by creating a screen first. I thought it will create a screen automatically.

    Spigot is crashing, And its always related to PermGen, This is my wrapper-properties,my host added the extra-runtime-arguments trying to fix the crashes.
    http://pastebin.com/g0TPnsd8
    Since disabling, no more crashes, so these are logs from last week which I posted to spigot forums, these are all different types of permgen errors that I got.

    Im really missing my Telnet connection being on a Shared host and configurable restarts. :(

    Hi. Everytime I start my server, I get the following error:
    [​IMG]

    Not really sure what's wrong, appears to be something with Jline. I've checked, I have Jline installed. This began occuring when I switched to my current dedi.

    drdanick when playing with modpacks with a lot of mods the server often freezes on start up and echos "read timeout" for hours without rtk detecting it. Would it be possible to look into this and maybe get a detection for it? This would be awesome.

    My server constantly crashes, restarts or kicks the clients randomly so I was wondering if you guys could help me out since I have no idea what to do, here's the pastebin of my wrapper.properties:
    http://pastebin.com/iyFLwXkq


    I think it has to do with the ram getting overused in no-time every time the server launches and that the only thing the server can do when it has no free ram anymore is to restart or kick players?
    Thanks :)

    I've been wondering the same thing for a while. Can we expect more updates for the tool drdanick? :)

    Ok... Not sure if other people have had this issue, but when the server crashes and the plugin restarts the server, after about a minute of the server being online it will restart the server again, it does the indefinitely until you re-run the launch script. Any help would be appreciated :)

    GnaXi Creepers.Help The toolkit is not dead. R10 is in a feature freeze at the moment. I'm currently in the final semester of my degree, so things will be slow-ish until i'm done with that.

    And to everyone else: The best place to get support right now is the IRC channel; I'm unfortunately a little too busy this week to be able to construct thoughtful responses here. Sorry about that! Things will return to normal sooner rather than later.

    Yeeeesss! There is literally nothing out there to replace this amazing wrapper, Ive had to work without it for a while on 1.7.9, and life is not as easy.
    Cannot wait for a review and update :)

    • Storing users in MySQL table will be very useful for owners of 2+ servers.
    • Reloading of configuration without wrapper restarting also needs to be.
    • Don't you really think about making it open source?

    drdanick

    The last two are coming with R11, the first will be possible through plugins. With everything currently going on with the Bukkit project, this is likely to happen sooner rather than later.

    I run my server remotely, and use this, remote desktop, and dropbox to interface with the console and files.
    But if I hold or unhold through remote desktop, the server wont be able to start due to not being able to reserve space for the heap.
    Like I said, even holding it in remote desktop, and unholding through telnet after disconnecting, the server cant start.
    I also cant start the server anew, no restart, or holding. But closing the program and running it again. Even after a time delay.
    Whats wrong?

    That sounds more like the server doesn't have the memory it needs to start the server. Something isn't being freed up properly when the game process is closed.
    In file wrapper.properties check your values for initial-heap-size and maximum-heap-size. I have my initial heap at 512M and maximum at 1536M (have it higher if you intend on running a big server). What are yours set at?

    KeeganDeathman

    Well the server has enough ram. I can launch it if I'm at the computer, or through telnet alone, no commands over remote desktop. But remote desktop, it locks it in. No more for you.
    I have the initial and max heap sizes set at:
    256 and 1512. megas.

    Have you tried running the toolkit wrapper as a Windows service instead of interactively?

    Have same problem! How to fix? Want use rtoolkit with Cauldron and Spigot 1.7.10, but they crashed after 10 min online with permgen space

    You can either use Java 1.8 (which no longer uses PermGen) or edit the wrapper.properties and add:
    overridden-process-arguments=java -Xincgc -Xmx6G -XX:MaxPermSize=128M -Djline.terminal\=jline.UnsupportedTerminal -jar
    Change the -Xmx6G to the maximum memory you want to allocate.
