Shell Server Instability

Update: Issues are still ongoing and being investigated.

This morning shell.sonic.net was briefly unreachable while instability issues were addressed. Shell sessions that were open were closed and the host was unavailable for a few minutes, but at this time it is back online and users are able to connect.
