Hi Kay,

I really appreciate the work you did on rendering parking places in Germany. I would be glad to see your work extended to every place of the world! But I often see rose boxes instead of tiles when zooming in France in some places where parking places are located.

See for example :

Is it a server limitation? Is it only due to a rendering not yet finished? Maybe do you know other similar rendering servers? Thanks, Teuxe (talk) 16:37, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

parking map with time restrictions?

Hi Kay, is awesome. But do you know of any facility where parking is rendered based on the time of day? That is to say, "I want to park here between 8am and 10am", and it will show you which parking is available at that time?




first: thanks for rendering parking tags! I'm trying to add a lot of parking information for my hometown, but currently it needs up to a week until I see any changes. This way it takes a lot of time until I see mapping errors (or positive results). Is there anything you (or I) can do to accelerate rendering? (marking tiles as dirty has apparently no effect) --Trublu (talk) 10:40, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi. First answer (if you look at The toolserver is about to be switched off, so it may be possible that no updates are processed there any more.
Second answer (if you look at, my own server): Please note that until I get a living out of creating maps (or I find a sponsor) I must live with the smallest server Hetzner has to offer. Basically the disk drives are just slow enough to not cope with the minutely updates. So they keep piling up until the process is finished. This may get worse with more data in the DB. Currently an update cycle (and thus max lag) is about 2 days. Anyway, since about two weeks ago, some processes were blocking the CPU, I killed them. They may also be a reason for pink tiles lately. -- Kay
I was using but will stop now. For a short while I'll use your server, but it seems to me, that a sensible action would be to setup my own server (possibly restricted to my hometown if possible, since I also don't have a big budget - the two smallest server classes from Manitu). Can I use your configuration to rebuild --Trublu (talk) 06:27, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
