Database restart

Our database servers have been generating some alerts today, where the monitoring system can't log into the servers to check on them. I can't log in either, but as best I can tell the databases are still running, or you wouldn't be seeing this. There is probably an issue with memory usage or excessive disk I/O, but it's kind of hard to troubleshoot at the moment. I would expect DW to be down for a while at some point today in order to restart the databases and/or reboot the servers. More info when [staff profile] mark's had a chance to look.

Good luck finding what's wrong and fixing it!

Well, it's well into the afternoon local time, about five hours since you posted. Either it's happened already or it hasn't, either way, thanks for the heads up.

Geterdone. :)

Ta for heads-up, and here's to there never being any major problems with DW - you're one of the last bastions of sanity competently and considerately run blogsites on the internet!

As I said earlier, this seems to be the weekend for websites to go down. Thanks for the heads up!
