Planned Downtime to Affect openSUSE Services

October 4th, 2017 by

A scheduled power outage in the Nuremberg office will effect a number of openSUSE services from Oct. 13 at 4 p.m. (16:00 UTC) to Oct. 14  at 4 p.m. (16:00 UTC).

The scheduled maintenance on the building’s electricity will affect most services. The only services that will be normally operating are:
status.opensuse.org
download.opensuse.org
static.opensuse.org
conncheck.opensuse.org

The rest of the services will be fully online on Oct. 15. The Heroes team will try to keep you updated on the situation, and will also send a few reminders (on the opensuse-announce mailing list) before the incident.

Due to technical constraints, the above services will not be available through IPv6 during the outage.

Thank you for your understanding.
On behalf of the openSUSE Heroes Team and the SUSE-IT team.

Announcing openSUSE’s status page – status.opensuse.org

Worried about downtimes and maintenance windows of openSUSE services that you missed because there was no information provided? ;-)

Now is your chance to get informed about any (un-)expected downtime of any openSUSE service!

The openSUSE Heroes team is pleased to announce that status.opensuse.org is up and running as public status page, providing you with the latest updates about our infrastructure.  We tried our best to get the page mobile friendly and easy to understand. Even RSS and Atom feeds are available. A big “thank you” to the team from Cachet, the open source status page system, for developing that great tool.

You wonder where this status page get’s it’s information from?

For the moment, the Heroes will update the page manually with information – until our new monitoring system is up and running and can take over some parts of the job. Thanks to a nice API, updates and status queries can be done even via command line (and therefor integrated in whatever tool you can imagine). But as we want to provide you with the best information available, we might still use a “human form” instead of automatism. Let’s see what the future brings and how familiar we will get with the tool…

Hardware problem: rsync.opensuse.org down

January 11th, 2016 by

rsync-logoWhat a start in the new year: the server running rsync.opensuse.org died with two broken hard disks at 2016-01-10.

As the hardware is located in the data center of our sponsor IP Exchange, we apologize for the delay it will take to fix the problem: we need not only the correct replacement hard drives, but also a field worker at the location who has the appropriate permissions and skills.

During the downtime (and maybe also a good tip afterward), please check on http://mirrors.opensuse.org/ for the closest mirror nearby your location that also offers rsync for you.

rsync.opensuse.org down, take two

March 17th, 2014 by

After the outage 1 month ago, it seems rsync.opensuse.org has similar hardware problems again.

Again we did not see any output on the serial console any more and even a power cycle did not reanimate the system.

[Update] Hardware problem: rsync.opensuse.org down

[Update]: the problem seems to be a broken hard disk – and a hardware controller who can not really handle this degraded RAID array. For the moment, everything is up and running again, but we are now actively searching for replacement hardware…

Looks like the hardware behind rsync.opensuse.org now finally reaches it “end of life” status: we did not see any output on the serial console any more and even a power cycle did not reanimate the system.

Infrastructure Maintenance Thursday

December 10th, 2008 by

Some parts of the openSUSE Project’s infrastructure will be down briefly for maintenance tomorrow, December 11th, starting at 10:00 UTC (11:00 CET / 05:00 EST). This should last between 5 and 15 minutes, so the impact on project services should be minimal.

This will impact download servers, the mirror stage server, and the Subversion/git server. See Peter Poeml’s email to opensuse-announce for more information.
