Server back in business
« on: June 13, 2017, 06:11:28 pm »

The forums were down for half a day due to a problem at our hoster. I don't know any details, but some I/O requests to the server's hard drive (really the hoster's SAN) kept timing out. Here are some fun graphs because I know you like pictures:




I tried to reboot the server to see if that fixes the problem, but it refused to come back up, which was a bit shy of an improvement. I logged into the virtual server management site, only to find that that wasn't responding either and finally gave me an error message. So I filed a support ticket with the hoster. Fortunately they seem to have fixed it in the night shift already, as we don't pay enough to warrant paging people out of bed if it's something that just affects us. Anyway, we're back up now, so enjoy :)

  • Almost too much seasoning.

That looks like a fun find. Did you get any word back on 'what' they 'found/fixed'?

Nope. I told them it was working again in a reply, so I doubt they'll follow up.
