    Post Server Down Times

    There have been a few server downtimes today. We are trying to isolate a hardware problem that leads to occasional crashes. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Has it been going on for the last few days?

    No, it crashed yesterday and the day before. Today's brief downtimes (twice) were shutdowns to run tests on hardware parts on different machines. There might be other interruptions until the problem is isolated.

    Post Re: Server Down Times

    We swapped the whole server hardware (everything but the harddrives) in our quest to find out what causes the crashes.

    The network admin then forgot to link the additional IPs to the network (amongst others the one on which I run skadi.net) what caused some more downtime.

    We'll see if the server keeps on crashing in which case it can only be the kernel (or some other software issue.)

    New Linux mirrors will be available in about a week or two; we will then do a smart OS restore with the new version - that should hopefully solve all downtime problems once and for all.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Seems it is not the hardware. I want to wait until the new OS mirrors are out (maybe a week or two). Until then the server might keep on crashing without indication of the problem by behavior or in the error logs.

    I'll keep this monitored.

    The brief 2 minutes down time was a scheduled reboot (see above.)

    Worked perfectly.
