Just the facts ma'am about upgrades and downtime

Category Archives: Uncategorized

Good morning, we are about to perform a database upgrade. This is a software change that will allow us to make faster, zero-downtime, data migrations in the future, as new features are added. Expect a few minutes downtime, this post will be updated once done, thanks! UPDATE: Done. This was completed with a few minutes […]

A database upgrade will take place this morning, a few minutes downtime expected. I’ll update this post once it’s done. UPDATE: all done now System was out for approx 8 minutes earlier.

The main database server is running on an old KVM instance, which Linode have advised should be migrated. With v3.6 releasing this week, now is the time to do it, so please expect some downtime this week. I’ll comment here once complete.

Surprise, surprise! Linode just decided to suddenly kick off a database migration – yes, during the peak time in the week, and this will take 3.5 hours. I’ve been on the phone to their support and nothing can be done about it. UPDATE (Tues 00:30 PST) The migration did not go well and the database […]

Currently a background processor is being upgraded, meaning that feeds won’t be fetched and importing will be suspended for next 2-3 hours. Once it’s ready, it will be […]

Remaining Linodes are being upgraded shortly, stay tuned! Update Job complete, all Linodes are now running on Linode’s new KVM infrastructure. Downtime was approx 60 minutes.

Servers will be cycled this morning to take advantage of Linode’s new KVM setup. It’s been running a while in staging without hassle.

Update: 20:24 PST – This is now resolved. If you were seeing this issue, please pull-to-refresh and all should be restored. [2] Some users have reported an app crash today, which seems to be the result of a server update involving how timestamps are stored [1]. We’re still investigating the issue. For most users, it […]

As part of Linode’s scheduled maintenance I referenced here earlier this week, there will be a period of anywhere between 30 minutes and 2 hours downtime starting at 19:00 PST tonight (3am UK time). International times here. There are a number of scheduled downtime windows this weekend where the system can be reconfigured, load-balance, or […]
