Feature added to L

Posted by Flash on Monday 22 July 2002

We have added a new feature to L that allows the owners of private channels to secure their channel more effectively. This is done by forcing channel mode +i (invite only), requiring an 'INVITE' to be issued to gain access to the channel. For more information on how to gain an invite from L and how to enable this new feature please read the relevant L FAQ items.

Please log in to post comments.
If you add many more features it won\'t be lightweight :p

steve said on Monday 22 July 2002

The features does not take up any extra Ram (uses a bit in the allready existing chanflag structure) and the only \'expensive\' call thats made in the parsing of the extra modes is a lookup of the channel based on the channelname which is very fast (O(1) amortised). We\'re very carefull whenever adding features to L that we do not make it too heavy. Small note: L currently uses 50MB Ram and allmost no cpu (0.00% on a PIII-550) with 200k registered users and 50k channels. Im satisfied with that

And how much resources does Q take?

Nakke said on Monday 22 July 2002

Nice Bigfoot. I think that Q is somewhere around 400-500mb ram.

|vk|sorcer said on Monday 22 July 2002

Nice feature. Will this be added to Q aswel?

wiebe said on Monday 22 July 2002

nice feature, though i won\'t need it. #5: reread the Q requirements.

JaSt said on Monday 22 July 2002

Q uses about 300MB Ram itself. On top of that comes the mysql database which takes about 150MB. So totally about 450MB. Q has the same amount of registered users as L (they share users) but only sits on 25k channels (half of what L sits on).

Bigfoot said on Tuesday 23 July 2002

There are 41971 users and 26901 invisible on 49 servers 74 operator(s) online 2 unknown connection(s) 92864 channels formed ---- in 75000 channls, L or Q is in. what channeltypes are the other 17000 channels ? why don\'t they need L ?

DrSchnagels said on Tuesday 23 July 2002

#8: I guess, people who don\'t know about Q/L, #nickname channels, testing channels or other temporary channels. Looking at the netsplit.de stats, you can easily see that QuakeNet has far more channels than users (which is not true for most other bigger IRC networks).

JaSt said on Tuesday 23 July 2002

make a feature which an onwer can all clear the user-flags and only owners are protected :o) greetz

dEslipper said on Wednesday 24 July 2002

#10: if you use mIRC there\'s a script on http://help.quakenet.org/index.php?page=hosted that you can use, search for clearchanlev

Zip said on Thursday 25 July 2002
