Outage, Monday 7 March 2011

Postby admin » 7 Mar 2011, 4:26pm

Apologies for the rather long outage during this afternoon.

There appear to be some serious network problems on the network the Forum server is hosted on. The server itself if happy, and having a nice break since people can't reach it!

I'll post more information about what the problem was when I get it.

Update: apparently an important network switch failed, and is due to be replaced.

In the meantime all traffic is going via a backup switch, which is causing some network congestion and slowness.

We seem to be back fast again now.

Many apologies for the unusually-long slow/down time. I'll post more information here when I get it, for those that are interested in what went wrong.
