Network Status News & Information

Summit (Resolved)
  • Priority - Critical
  • Affecting Server - UK Server - Summit
  • There was a power issue at the Datacenter, and when power was restored there was severe corruption with the server's filesystem.

    We attempted to repair the filesystem and it got the server online, but as you are aware, there were still several issues after the server came back online. After much detailed analysis, we determined that there was still extensive damage to the filesystem, and it was deemed necessary to perform a full restore of the server from our offsite backups.

    At this point the restore is ongoing, and moving quickly. We are also taking whatever measures possible to increase throughput for the restore and reduce the time needed to restore the server.

    I again would like to apologize for the inconvenience here.

    Update:
    The file restoration is complete. We did bring it back online but the main file system in the backup contained errors. As a result manual file system check is required before we bring the server is back online fully again. This has completed the 1st pass.

    Update
    There is Innodb tablespace issue on summit still which we are trying to resolve as quickly as possible. More updates will follow.

    Update
    both server and backup machine are in the same data centre. We're trying to find out from the datacenter exactly how these systems are connected. The restore time is sickening so it is doubtful this is a 10G network throughout or somethings just off. We didn't expect this so we are investigating why this took so long.
