Web Cluster Upgrades

We’ve just completed replacing all of the older dual dual-core xeon servers that make up our load balanced webcluster with new dual quad-core xeon servers with 16GB of ram each.  The new servers are substantially faster than the old servers so some users may notice that their websites load faster and that their hosted applications are more responsive.

Emergency Router Reload

Tonight, at Midnight, we will be performing an emergency router reload in Petaluma.  This router serves Flexlink Long Range in the Petaluma area.  Downtime is expected to be 5 to 10 minutes while the router is reloading.

Web and MySQL Cluster Service Interuption

A transient issue on one of our customer MySQL servers that went unnoticed by our monitoring systems caused processes to lock and stack on our web cluster.  Sites hosted on our web cluster, including, may have been slow or timed out while loading until the issue was properly identified and resolved.  We’ve already corrected the error in monitoring the MySQL server and will take steps to ensure that it doesn’t happen again.  -Kelsey and William
