EMC Network Maintenance 1AM EMC Time [complete]

  1. All,
    Sorry for short notice, but I will be shutting servers down at 1AM EMC time (1hour 15 minutes from now) to change some configuration around.

    As you know we've been having some problems the past few days, and I've been making tons and tons of changes over the past few days.

    Going to make a few more tonight (restructuring the internal network on top of a 10.x range instead of a 192.168 range, combined with a new internal DNS system!)

    This involves restarting servers and lots of management changes to accommodate the new network structure.

    I anticipate there will be problems, as this isn't something I can test before I roll it out, but will get everything back up as soon as I can.

    I am working to finalize some network configurations that will ensure our problems are a thing of the past is the reason for this change.

  2. No problem. If it helps with the server problems, we are all for it :p
  3. Thanks, Hope all the Problems will fix, and it works out easy for you, Best part is it will be going on when i am sleeping haha.
  4. Thanks for the update, was going mining tonight but I might get a decent night's sleep instead :p
  5. Keeping up the good work as usual Aikar. :)
  6. Thank you Aikar!
    Any guess to if it will be down for minutes or for hours?
  7. hopefully 5-10 minutes~.. if it goes into hours then i must of fell asleep after stopping the servers.

    Though I am taking this time to update the servers to java 8 too. I've been using java8 on stage for a while without issue so not expecting problems.

  15. So far considerably less lag, though I'm sure you saw that coming.
    tps was just a perfect 20
    Just kidding. Still with the lag-outs. :\
  16. this maint did not make any changes to lag.
    it was prep work for other changes and improving the configuration of our network.

    Your issue is special cased, but should be resolved soon.
  17. Cool. Thanks. I guess I assumed all problems were one problem.
