1 MMOs and Socket Servers Diego O. Scarpa 10 y 11 de Diciembre – Hotel Panamericano - Buenos Aires

2 10 y 11 de Diciembre – Hotel Panamericano – Buenos Aires MMO and Socket Servers MMO = Massively Multiplayer Online Game What is the main concept? – Handle interaction between multiple users How we can do that? – Socket Server

3 10 y 11 de Diciembre – Hotel Panamericano – Buenos Aires Basic Design Diagram Socket Server Client 1Client 2 Services Client n

4 10 y 11 de Diciembre – Hotel Panamericano – Buenos Aires Socket Server Who it works? – Simple, it uses sockets Client Server Socket 1. bind() 2. listen() 3. accept() 4. send – receive 5. close() 1. bind() 2. connect() 3. send – receive 4. close()

5 10 y 11 de Diciembre – Hotel Panamericano – Buenos Aires Socket Server (II) Where is the complexity? – Communication – APIs – Security – Scalability – Performance – Tools

6 10 y 11 de Diciembre – Hotel Panamericano – Buenos Aires Communication Control Content Format – Join user, join room, leave room, custom message Data Content Format – text, object, etc Serialization Options – XML – JSON – Binary – Custom Message Control Content Data Content

7 10 y 11 de Diciembre – Hotel Panamericano – Buenos Aires Communication (II) Compression – Is it required? – Check your requirements – Do performance benchmarks

8 10 y 11 de Diciembre – Hotel Panamericano – Buenos Aires Tunneling – It should work behind a firewall or a proxy, Is this necessary? – Check your audience DMZ Communication (IV) Client Socket Server

9 10 y 11 de Diciembre – Hotel Panamericano – Buenos Aires Security Authentication/Authorization – Users – Permission – Do it always

10 10 y 11 de Diciembre – Hotel Panamericano – Buenos Aires Security (II) Encryption – Example, AES-128 – Check performance

11 10 y 11 de Diciembre – Hotel Panamericano – Buenos Aires Security (III) Anti Cheat – Unique Message Numbering Message injection Message modification – Anti-flood filters Chat issues – IP filter that prevents too many connections from a single IP address

12 10 y 11 de Diciembre – Hotel Panamericano – Buenos Aires Client Side/Server Side API Object Model – Users, Rooms, Variables Extensibility Interaction with external services Interoperability between extensions Threads

13 10 y 11 de Diciembre – Hotel Panamericano – Buenos Aires Client Side/Server Side API (II) Deploy server Cross platform – Client and Server sides Tools Creation Bots creation Variables: User, Room, Server Documentation

14 10 y 11 de Diciembre – Hotel Panamericano – Buenos Aires Scalability Clustering Load balancer Socket Server Socket Server Socket Server Socket Server Socket Server Socket Server

15 10 y 11 de Diciembre – Hotel Panamericano – Buenos Aires Scalability (II) Split the message handling – Rooms – Realms – Servers Server Realm Room Realm Room

16 10 y 11 de Diciembre – Hotel Panamericano – Buenos Aires Tools Tracking users Network traffic Performance

17 10 y 11 de Diciembre – Hotel Panamericano – Buenos Aires Tools (II) Logging Moderator: – kick, ban, etc.
