Brief downtime

Sat, 11 Sep 2010 17:06:33 -0400 - ajanata

Got this in my inbox from Slicehost, which is where my server lives:


The server your slice was on became unresponsive to our monitoring at Sat Sep 11 17:01:12 UTC 2010 and an emergency reboot was required.

Slices were restarted and are running, however we will be monitoring this machine for further trouble.

Please note that this was a server issue and your Slice activity was not a causal factor.

We'll notify you should further action be required.

We apologize for this downtime and please contact us if you have any questions.

Kind Regards,

Slicehost Support

In all, we had maybe 45 minutes to an hour of downtime. Once they noticed something was up and rebooted the physical machine, my virtual machine decided it had to check its hard drive for consistency because it had been 299 days since the last time it did that. :)

With regards to TeamSpeak, the vote looks positive enough to make it worth my while. I may work on that later today, or possibly tomorrow. I've had some sort of sinus infection for most of the last week since I've gotten home from PAX so I'm not sure I'm going to want to sit at a computer for several hours (since I've done that all week at work while ill).
