Mechanipus downtime


  • Coder

    Still trying to identify details, but both Mechanipus-Fremont servers are unreachable at this point. Suspected routing problem within HE-Fremont. Games affected:

    Incidently, this probably means other large MUs hosted in that datacenter (not by me!) are down also. (Tapestries, et al...)


  • Coder

    Update! Part (maybe a large part) of Fremont lost power.

    Been a few years now since HE-FREMONT was having these problems, but it's somewhat infamous for having bad luck with electrical issues. (Getting struck by lightning and frying servers, etc.) Fun times. :tired_face:

    Still no ETA. I'll keep watching and let everyone know once it's back in my hands.

    Update: HE-Fremont lost utility power; PG&E reports 500-4999 properties affected in Fremont.

    Like most modern datacenters, HE has diesel generators that come on line right away to prevent this. One of them suffered some sort of mechanical failure. Guess which one we were on!

    I'm going to go out on a limb and guess the host didn't have the benefit of independent power supplies.

    Do you need host in the meantime? I got much capacity.

    I suspect you're right, and I cannot imagine why. Multiply-redundant power generation facilities and regular testing/maintenance are a pretty critical part of the industry now.

    That said, this particular datacenter has a long history of trouble (lightning strike, truck crashed into the building, etc).

    I'll likely be moving both KUU and KURAMORI out to Texas. bleh.

    For my day-job, we're in a local datacenter that has a much better track-record, and yes-- redundant power generation and supply all the way to each physical machine.

    Linode is a hosting provider though, so the idea is they should ensure those things are taken care of. It's looking like HE.net is just a bad place to go.

    As for hosting... well. Thank you for the offer! I suspect that as I gradually transition out of mush-hosting, lots of people will want to take you up on that.



  • The Reach is up. Eldritch is not. I don't know what other games are up or down because I don't play there.


  • Coder

    We're back up and it looks stable.

    @Derp That's likely a function of which games are correctly configured to autostart. Yell at @thenomain, maybe...

    He'll probably ask me to fix it tho.

    Internet cookies to whoever fixes it first. :D


  • Coder

    @Derp Sigh. Try now.



  • @Chime

    ALL THE INTERNET COOKIES FOR YOU!

    Thank you, @Chime.

    Hey, I was getting my ass kicked at Ora et Labora. Priorities.
