Broken AH API

There's definitely something weird going on with the AH data exports frequency.. here's Emerald Dream as an example:

Was: 60 minutes between updates, +/- 5 seconds.
Nov 1, 20:00 UTC: changed to 46 minutes per update +/- 3 seconds.
Nov 5, 23:30 UTC: changed to 35 minutes per update, +/- 3 seconds.
Nov 7, 01:38 UTC: changed to 111 minutes per update, +/- 0 seconds.

It has been updated once every 111 minutes since then.

I see similar patterns on most, if not all, other US realms. What's up? While the more frequent updates were nice, I think going back to once every 60 minutes would be satisfactory.

This is still a problem.

From my stats at this moment:
Average US delay: 112 minutes. Max US delay: 114 minutes on US-Bloodhoof.
Average EU delay: 51 minutes. Max EU delay: 55 minutes on EU-Earthen Ring.

This is still a problem.

There's also a new problem: Tortheldrin US auction data is pointing to Shadow Council, even though those realms are not connected. http://us.battle.net/api/wow/auction/data/tortheldrin

The update times are based on the server that is getting AH snapshots and saving them. We can look into why they have slowed down in the past, but it was not meant to always be a robotic 60 minute increment.

The Tortheldrin problem is a bug. I'm having the game team correct our DB now. Thanks :)

Given that this is getting progressively worse, I'm guessing its safe to assume its related somehow to the realm merges somehow repeating their workload? (2hrs and counting currently on Boulderfist, I've heard reports of days on other realms)

The update interval seems to be still increasing. For the few realms I've checked, it seems to be at 2.5 hours now. I understand if it was never supposed to be every hour on the dot, but if we can't expect hourly, what can we expect? Is it going to keep increasing until we're at daily updates? Unfortunately, the less frequent updates are making it harder to do useful / cool things with the auction data and are causing frustration among users who were used to hourly updates in the past. Some of this frustration could easily be resolved by knowing what a more reasonable expectation is, which is what I'm asking for here. Thanks!

This is still a problem, though it doesn't affect all US realms... just most of them.

Here's what I've observed as the average update interval (in minutes) for all US realms over the past week. Note that this includes connected realms, so technically some rows will be redundant:

Just ran into another bug.

Anvilmar is a valid US realm. Here's its auction status page:
http://us.battle.net/api/wow/auction/data/anvilmar

Now, if you follow the link (as of writing this) to the auction json page:
http://us.battle.net/auction-data/f7a438b9d78f323939972cc968aa6ae9/auctions.json

You will see the following:
"realm":{"name":"Xavius","slug":"xavius"}

Xavius is not a valid US realm, and Anvilmar isn't even a connected realm. All the auctions listed do have players from Anvilmar, it just appears the realm is listed incorrectly.

Anvilmar was going to be connected at some point, but something went wrong with the connection. Realm status is also affected, so it might remain broken until the connection is finished.

The problem is that Xavius is a EU realm while Anvilmar is a US realm haha!

It really feels like the updates are being pushed manually by a forgetful set of people. Sometimes I swear I've seen updates in as little time as 20 mins and other times not for almost 200. I understand that there are downfalls to exact 60 minute clockwork updates, but +/- 10% is a reasonable variation.

So, known current problems?
Extensive delays in updates.
Anvilmar screwed up, but hasn't even been connected yet.
Darrowmere + Windrunner connected but screwed up.

Well, it seems Darrowmere has been fixed, and now appears properly connected to Windrunner.

Something was done to Anvilmar, but it's now showing as connected to Undermine, which isn't scheduled to happen for 2 more weeks. And it's still showing Xavius, which not only isn't connected but isn't even a US realm, it's EU.

oh, and Anvilmar still shows as offline on the Server Status page, and has for 3 weeks or so.

Still a problem for most US realms. Just visit this page for my most recent stats over the past week:
