System maintenance September 14

We will be doing some work on our SAN infrastructure today beginning at 14:00 CET. This means the servers will be unavailable for some time, until one hour.

We will be posting updates in this article.


  • 14:15: Booting the servers, performing file system checks: 6%
  • 14:21: File system checks at 20%
  • 14:27: 33%
  • 14:32: 73%
  • 14:44: 87%
  • 14:46: The physical server is up, starting services
  • 14:53 All done!

    When you do have maintenance, rather than just failing to be reachable, why not add a temporary redirect to this blog post or similar?

    Good point, in fact we planned to serve a static placeholder message, but the disk space ran out before we got around to preparing for that.

    It won’t help SSH/Git traffic, but still.
