Short site outage earlier this morning

The site was down for a couple of hours this morning; resolved now and we're looking into what triggered it. Sorry about the inconvenience, y'all. [more inside]

We are reconsidering that decision

Deep within the bowels of yesterday’s cluster-fuck, it was stated by jessamyn that the operation of the site during holidays was in question. [more inside]

Server like butta'

Oh how easily we forget! Months ago (a year?) the server was consistently slow or down. Now it's smooth as a baby's butt and fast as the Google. Is Federer your server? I love it. My Mefi addicted brain thanks you.

Uptime is hugely improved

Uptime and performance have been awesome for me lately. In particular the days of long downtimes when the admins are asleep seem to be over. On behalf of UK mefites, thanks.

Why all the crashes?

Why is metafilter so slow and crash-prone? I know it gets a huge amount of traffic, but what causes the regular outages? Do you guys need a new server or what? I can't think of another major site that experiences as much downtime as metafilter does. (i'm not criticizing, I know how difficult it is to run a site of this scale... just curiouis)

Why can't I access MetaFilter?

Is there a reason why I consistently cannot access metafilter (or any other metafilter site) 2-3 times per day? Granted, these usually are at high traffic times of day. Mornings when I get up, when I get home from work, etc. However, that's not always the case. At first, I thought the site was just down once or twice. Now, it happens every day, most of the times I try to access the site. Nothing has changed in my PC setup at any point, and I was getting regular access to the site without problems about a month ago. If I wait long enough when I get a "page not found" error, the site usually will appear. I apologize if this was already covered.

Jabber server return date?

What's the ETA for the MetaFilter Jabber Server coming back up?

Sorry about the downtime today, it looks like some comment spammers were DoSing the box with requests for long-dead trackback URLs. After that was cleaned up, some other weird bugs kept the server unavailable for a few hours, but things should be back to normal now.

Metafilter uptime and performance has been excellent lately; Pages load in an instant and I haven't seen a JRun error in weeks. Thanks Matt!

Metafilter down?

I was moved to poetry this morning.

Metafilter down;
Sad tidings of the morning.
What shall I read now?


Shall I compare thee to the New York Times?
Thou art more lovely and less temperate.
Rough winds do shake the Gulf below us,
And the Roberts confirmation needs debate.

(appologies to Mr. Shakespeare)

Outage, whoops

Sorry about that, but for the first time since I started hosting mefi at server matrix, there was an outage:

D2 OUTAGE: www.metafilter.com Last Updated: 05/04/2005 19:05:17 Details: This server did not come back online after reboot. We will investigate shortly.

(bwalker-05/04/2005 19:05:17): This server would not power on. We have swapped the chassis and this machine is now powered up and responding to ping and RDC.

But all should be good now.

I'm genuinely interested as to when Matt thinks he'll have enough money to improve the site.

Let's take stock for a moment. We all know that MeFi is really, really slow, and really unreliable. Recently (for me at least), it's sometimes been unusably slow. I'm genuinely interested as to when Matt thinks he'll have enough money to improve the site. How is the ad revenue going? Are there any plans to charge for new membership?

We're back

So alas, one of the processor fans in the MetaFilter server decided to up and die, which coincided perfectly with a planned vacation to New York. Upon coming back, no replacement fan was to be found on my doorstep (due to stupid delayed shipping by the company from whom the replacement was ordered), so a trip to CompUSA later, we're back in business. Sorry 'bout that.

Sorry about the brief outage today

Sorry about the brief outage today; the networking equipment at this end of the T1 had a seizure, apparently, and needed to be restarted in order to get things back in order. Makes no sense to me (or to the networking gurus at my ISP), but there you have it.

Has the new server been set up?

I would guess that the new server is up. Wow! Thanks Matt. Anyone else notice or am I just getting lucky?

server timeouts - anyone else?

Since about 6:00am PST, I must have had about 30+ server timeouts like so:

Error Occurred While Processing Request
Error Diagnostic Information
Request canceled or ignored by serverServer busy or unable to fulfill request. The server is unable to fulfill your request due to extremely high traffic or an unexpected internal error. Please attempt your request again (if you are repeatedly unsuccessful you should notify the site administrator). (Location Code: 26)

Anyone else having problems?

mad propz

I would just like to offer mad propz to The Haughey for keeping the site up and running today. Where Microsoft failed, a lone hobbyist working for free came through.

DNS issues related to server switch

There were DNS issues today, there might be more soon, as I switch to new servers. Beware.
