[FINISHED] Disk maintenance affecting www4 maps only September 22, 2009Posted by ClustrMaps Team in News.
[UPDATE 20:15 GMT / 21:15 London – all is now restored, within a few minutes of our predicted time]
We had a scheduled maintenance on one of our disk array that we had to undertake earlier than expected, so we have not been able to provide advance warning. This will only affect users with HTML code that contains a ‘www4’ within it. The downtime should extend from approximately 16:00 GMT (17:00 London time) on 22 September 2009 until 20:00 GMT, i.e. a four-hour outage while the maintenance is undertaken. During the outage, thumbnail maps for www4 users do not get served, meaning there will be a small ‘counting gap’. As you know, we have always kept such gaps to a negligible proportion of our long-standing uptime over the years, and our forthcoming architecture revision will eliminate these gaps entirely with a better load-balancing and redundant server regime.
Many thanks for your patience.
