    Stats are down

    I'm remote till tomorrow evening.

    Two drives are not responding now, which is too much of a coincidence to be a drive problem.

    I will see if I can debug it some more tonight.

    This is incredible that it only seems to happen when I'm away as I don't travel often!!

    I thought you'd taught the cat how to cycle the power

    Site is back up, but there is no updating being done over the day.

    Just jumped 300k, but let's see whether this is permanent. I already dropped back (to 337,711,998) before this day at least trice.

    I haven't noticed anything wrong today? Seem to be updating ok.

    I remote rebooted the box last night and fsck'd all the filesystems and things seemed to be back to normal which is when I switched the stats back on. (almost worries me more that there was an unexplained failure).

    are you still seeing issues?

    *EDIT* hmm, I think maybe one of the databases might still be having problems. It flip-flops between the two which is why you see it ok then not ok.

    *EDIT2* I see a corrupted table on the combined score in that database. It's repairing now.

    WAY WAY WAY too much.

    I'd love to put the database in memory to be honest, every now and then I look into servers with 256Gb or even 512GbRam. Just cost way too much! Something like this is close with 144Gb Ram - http://www.ebay.com/itm/DELL-C6100-C...item2a36d147d1 just the processor speed is a bit slow.

    But I don;t think the disks failed at all this time as they are perfectly fine and it's too much of a coincidence for them both to fail at the same time. Ever since I changed the way the stats work by round-robbin the databases things have been fine.

    I am going to put 2 extra SSD's into the server this week though so they are on real standby. I have them sitting close by in a standby server which I was given - older I7-920 but it's not very stable itself.

    Not stable - I think it probably just needs some fresh coffee coolent
    Well get it stable if you can
