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.

  • Okay, kids.

    Playing with myself is only fun for so long.

    I haven't been around in awhile ~ but I didn't mean to stay away so long that my favorite virtual town died. Where are you kids? Phin can't get into very much trouble by herself.

    I've been getting the itch to play again but I also find myself alone more often than not. I might catch one or two people on the who list but they disappear quickly.

      I never seem to see anyone else around. Did run into Phineas and er, was it Evan who I ran into? I forget now. But that was only the one time. It is lonely in Arkham.

        Oh I think it was ETHAN who I ran into, not Evan? I'm not totally one hundred percent on that, but that sounds right.

          Evariste has returned, and would be glad to cause trouble! I still have maracas from the Cinco de Mayo party!

            I've poked around in LC a little bit in the past, but I now have a solid character concept and would like to log in on a regular basis. Hope to see an active Who list
