Co-Lo Stability Problems

Unfortunately, our co-lo had some stability problems Friday morning.

First up, they lost all of their connectivity to the facility that holds all of our games. This took them about 40 minutes to diagnose and a bit longer to restore.

Much more astonishingly, they rebooted all of their machines (which means all of our machines) while they were fixing the problem, with no notice. This probably had minimal repercussions on the SkotOS games (Marrach, Ironclaw, Lazarus, and Lovecraft). There may have been a rollback of an hour or two.

TEC and Grendel's Revenge are more troublesome. TEC will suffer a rollback of 10 hours, to midnight (PT) last night, since the unannounced reboot happened one hour before the next backups. GR suffered a more complete failure. We're being forced to restore the entire machine from its backups, then we'll need to restore the game from the backups stored within that backup. The lineup of dates look promising (which is how we laid them out, 'lo these many years ago), so the hope is that we'll only suffer a 7 hour rollback, to the 3am (PT) game backup, but it's a bit dicey at the moment.

Apologies for the inconvenience; we're now making sure everything is stable, and we're looking into whether our most recent upgrades to TEC will support increasing the backups to every 6 hours.

Edit: The GR problem is proving even more intractable than hoped. As best I can tell, our colo is still having some issues because I can't boot the first restore I made of GR and I can't build a new node either. I expect this will just clear when they get their act together, but in the meantime I'm not able to get GR back online until they fix these problems.

  • Inner Bailey - Royal Hospital Open Bells Half past 8 LB Moon's Day (This evening)

    Good day,

    I will be opening the Royal Hospital this evening at half past the eighth bell for all individuals wishing to visit who have access to the Inner Bailey. Especially encouraged are any recently woken denizens of the keep who wish to view the newly built Royal Hospital, and any individuals interested in learning more about the Healers. Based on attendance, there may be a short discussion about the a new theory on "Extended Hibernation", which will be touched upon in the coming weeks as I write on it, followed by a open lecture and discussion.

    All Healers in need of training are encouraged to attend as well.

    Good day,

    I will be holding bells this evening at the same time, half past the eighth bell. Any denizen with Inner Access is welcome to attend. Today's discussion will be on "First Response" and how to deal with an emergency.
