Yesterday's Server Outage




Yesterday, Erin was reviewing some of the server logs and discovered several recent instances of the server OVERHEATING and reacting by reducing CPU speed until the problem abated. THIS explains the server acting odd the last week or two perhaps. We had the technicians on site check the machine and they found it 'hotter' than the rest in the rack and showing signs of a power supply fan failing. The system was pulled, the power supply removed and replaced and the whole machine brought back online within 45 minutes. Kudos to all involved.

THAT is one good reason we host professionally here - the parts to repair are on hand and repairs are usually fast. There are many other reasons why we do it this way, but this is one.

Be well. Game on.
