Army.ca Server Availability
« on: January 11, 2018, 09:12:12 »
Folks, for the first time in a long time, good news.

According to our monitoring tools, Army.ca had 100% uptime in December. That means that for the entire month of December, the server was never unavailable.* For the keeners in the group, our monitoring report from 30 Nov to now is attached.

Thanks to everyone for your patience through our past frustrations... I can't guarantee it is all behind us, but I will take the good news while I can!


Cheers
Mike

As always, thanks Mike.  :cheers:

I don't believe in coincidences, but I don't believe in fate either, so I guess I'll chalk this up to good old fashioned bad luck.

Our hosting service had "an unrecoverable issue with the underlying hardware" today, and flushed our server without prior notice. Luckily, I run multiple backup tiers and was able to recover all data. Took a few hours to bring everything back online, but we are up and running again (on new hardware, apparently!)

As usual please report any issues. And no, I did not learn anything about tempting fate, but next time I might just keep the good news to myself. ;)


Cheers
Mike

Yeah, I have to admit, despite it all I had a little laugh myself.
