Downtime 06/17/08

We're going to be bringing the site down briefly at 2:00 AM EST to replace the BBU (Battery Backup Unit) on one of our servers raid cards.

The failure of this BBU is the reason our images have been loading slowly the past couple days, so hopefully after this maintenance is complete we will be back up and running at full speed.

Thanks for your patience!

I was wondering what happened. The /forumdisplay.php file couldn't be found and I was like. "Oh balls. What this time?"

You guys need a massive hardware drop & swap.

Well, we actually have a new server coming online today to replace the machine that is causing us problems.

We're migrating from:

Dual dualcore AMD Opteron 270 (2.0ghz)
2gb Ram
2x150gb SATA II 10k drives in Raid 1

To:

Dual quadcore Intel 5430 (2.66ghz)
2gb Ram
2x300gb SCSI 15k drives in Raid 1

The existing (and currently pretty broken) machine has a SATA based 3ware raidcard in it that IMO is a piece of crap, since we've managed to go through 2 3ware raid cards, 1 battery backed cache, and 5 10k raptor SATA drives in the past month on this server alone.

Pretty nice setup.

Your problem is the AMD.

Well, you have to remember that some of these servers have been in service for over 2 years.

In the server CPU market, 2 years ago Intel CPUs were really lagging far behind, and Opterons were pretty much the go-to CPU for everyone.

However, the times have changed a bit from everything that I've read. We'll see how this Intel box works out since it's the first 64-bit Intel server I've ever provisioned

Good luck with it. I haven't used any 64x servers yet.

It's amazing how far technology has advanced in such a short time.
I've still got a 400MHz Celeron in my eMachines box, and that was blazingly fast when I bought it.

All,

I have disabled attachment and file uploads until Kyle has the new server all setup. The images server is currently in a read-only state.

As I mentioned, we're transitioning to this new server. Most everything should be moved over by now, so it should be a lot faster.

It might take a while for your DNS to update to point to the images server, but when it does it'll be nice and fast.
