Server maintenance
« on: October 24, 2011, 04:38:09 PM »
Dear users,


We have planned required maintenance to our server infrastructure.
This maintenance causes us to have downtime several times, both short and a bit longer in time.
(Exact timeframe cannot be predicted)
We will of course do our utmost best to keep the interruptions as short as possible.

The maintenance is scheduled to start at:
Sunday, October 30 2011.
The first maintenance session will most likely be the one causing the longest interruption.
Other dates will be released when they are planned.


For more information, please see all details about this maintenance in the Team Blog article:
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=457092


To be able to receive quick updates regarding the progress and status, please:

If you require urgent support when our community is down, please visit our backup forum. Make sure to bookmark it!!

Please do not open support topics there unless it is really urgent and cant wait a few hours.


Thank you :)

I will not go in to full details, but we have several servers that do different jobs such as virtual machine hosts, webservers, SQL servers, file servers, mail servers, etc.
All of them combined is what powers Simple Machines.

We own all hardware.

Thanks for the reply, that must be quite a setup to maintain with updates and monitoring user activity here.

It also explains the below page stats staying on par:

Quick note:
Welcome back!

The upgrades didnt went as smoothly as they should have gone, as you may have noticed ;)
We will post more details later.

As some of you may have noticed: the MOD site currently replies with "access denied".
We apologise for the inconvenience, but we have to make some changes before opening that up again. This should not take too long.

Hang in there! :)
Thank you for your patience!

Thank you :)

So this has been quite a nightmare for us system administrators.
We will post a more detailed report later, but first of all I would like to thank:

- dschwab9 (Derek) for spending a significant ammount of time both in and out of the datacenter, patching configurations, comming up with workarounds, upgrading hardware, etc. :)
- SleePy for spending a lot of time looking through configs and helping where he could :)
- WireSix Technicians, for bearing with us on letting them run to our file server multiple times :)
  They have been a great help to allow us to continue doing remote jobs
- I guess myself (sounds so wrong :P) for spending tons of time on transferring files, udating configs, figure out temporary workarounds for our hardware issues, making patches and modifications, installing software and mitigating DDoS attacks, all to get us in a running state again and working with Derek with the datacenter jobs that had to be done.
- Anyone else that may have indirectly helped us

And thank you all for your patience in this matter!! :)

Happy forum-ing!!

Just a heads up - the mail server and backend utility server that processes the mail queue are still down, so no emails are going out from the site.  We're currently working on recovering those.

Due to a hardware malfunction with the RAID controller in our NFS server, it's taking forever to migrate everything.

Everything is fully functional at this point.  We will be repairing and rebuilding the file server with the hardware issue and ultimately moving the data back to that box, which has more disks and IP capacity than the file server we are currently on.

Anyway, we are going offline again tomorrow to proceed with the upgrades!
We do not have a estimate time as it depends on various factors. We can also not exactly predict how long it will be offline for, but please expect it to take a couple of hours.

When you can get GoDaddy to deal with your 4+ dedicated systems (with multiple virtual instances on nearly all boxes) with special internal networking configuration and over 4mbit of constant traffic, then you can say that. As it is, their hosting solutions can barely keep a small shared website operating.

simplemachines.org isn't some small website, you know. It's well into where you can throw around the word "enterprise" and not look like a total moron.

so don't use them to host your site, you'll regret it eventually.

Please be advised we are planning on moving forward this Thurdsay.
Please keep in mind this is not definite, though it is approximately 90% sure we will be moving forward.

Simple Machines will be completely unreachable during the upgrades.
Updates will be posted to twitter and to some extent to Facebook.

Thank you for your ongoing patience in the matter :)

Powered by more servers and a new configuration.

Please be advised we are !not! 100% finished yet.
There's one big task left, though you should only notice a few minutes downtime from that, most likely tomorrow.

Thank you for your patience! :)

Hey guys, just a quick note that we will be performing some final configuration changes to complete this project today, 1/5/2012. We don't expect a lengthy outage, but might have a few minutes here and there of the site being unreachable or sluggish.

Things are so much better now than they were in December. I'm hoping that's due to your work protecting us from the incessant  DDOS attacks.
