Disruptions and downtime 2016/04/22
« on: April 22, 2016, 06:24:26 PM »
Apologies for the interruption to the Friday afternoon banter, we had an issue with the AVForums log drive filling up. The downtime was necessary to perform some maintenance and expand the disk to give us more headroom. The real root cause was that the Nagios monitoring was not setup when I performed a Debian OS upgrade about a month ago so the disk usage creep went unnoticed.

Moral of the story: when you reinstall a server, don't forget to set up the monitoring & alerting also! I will configure the appropriate level of alerting again as it used to exist before the upgrade within the next week.

Have a great weekend!  :groovy:
