Master Control

Jump to: navigation, search

He server.png Documentation on this page is intended for customers of HeroEngine managing their own server(s). Master Control is a system which is used to control and coordinate the HeroEngine Servers and Universes. Each Universe has one Master Control Process (Daemon), which controls the hardware and processes necessary to each of the worlds within that universe.

The Master Control consists of:

The way that they work together, is that the Master Control daemon fetches information from the Master Control Database, and sends it to the Master Control Console, along with the current status of those servers and processes.

Access to Master Control

Customers who self-manage their HeroEngine servers have access to Master Control.  Otherwise, Master Control is handled by the HeroEngine Operations team.


Note: Only customers with full or source licenses can modify values via the Master Control Console.

Because Master Control does not run from the Fireup Daemon, it must get its configurations from a configuration file, usually called 1.cfg.
