Who pulled the plug out?

Postby GTR1400MAN » Fri Sep 16, 2016 11:01 am

The forum disappeared for a few hours from last night to this morning.

Was it just me, or was there a problem ... or scheduled maintenance?

Not just you, I couldn't access the board this morning.

However . . . we had pretty horrendous storms down here (AK's near Swindon, so if his ISP is anywhere close, that's only 15-25 miles away), with flooding and power-outs. We (Newbury) lost power for an hour yesterday evening, and some of the area was out when I left home this morning.

Or it could be a coincidence ;)

This says the various data centres/servers were up ok. Multi routing should have dealt with any local issues.

Yeah, I had issues overnight/this morning too (both from home and work). Shrugs. Maybe Alistair should up the subscriptions if you want a SLA :lol:

You'd pay 50% more than you do now, wouldn't you? :bike:

Apologies guys - you were all meant to be asleep :D
scheduled maintenance from c. midnight to 4am by my technical guys, with some quite detailed restructuring of where things are in the datacenter...
for some reason a number of servers didn't go back up again (they probably forgot to plug them in!)

Thanks to a member on here who texted me to let me know (our usual monitoring system tells me if a server goes down, but can't tell me if it fails to go up after a planned outage...)

amazingly not a single one of my paying clients seemed to notice that their websites weren't back up :D
Talking of which I like the idea of doubling my fees - form an orderly queue over here... :D

for interest our servers are in a very robust and fail safe datacenter in Manchester - but this was probably human error!
