Fark.com status page

This is the status page for Fark's behind-the-scenes geekery. If there's a major outage or problem, we'll try to post something here about it (unless we're too up to our eyeballs in trying to actually fix it)... so check here if Fark's hosed for an extended length of time. Normally this page will be blank. :-) For more minor issues, see Mike's blog, or much more likely, Mike's twitter, Drew's twitter, Fark twitter or all Fark staff/mod/admin twitters together. On (very!) rare occasion you may be able to catch Mike on our webcam at QX's data center.

Our normal hosting provider is QX.net, a local ISP here in Lexington, KY. This outage page is hosted at DigitalOcean in case of backbone-related problems.


Wed May 31 23:32:46 EDT 2017: Applying a security update to a file server. Expect 10 min downtime.

Wed May 24 17:05:01 EDT 2017: We had to reboot both redundant firewalls simultanously just now, causing about 45-60 seconds downtime, to fix a weird state table corruption issue.

Sat May 20 01:09:43 EDT 2017: There'll be a few minutes of downtime over the next 5-15 mins to reconfigure one of the internal network VLANs.

Tue May 16 13:50:17 EDT 2017: Things started to get slow again, so I switched back to NFSv3.

Mon May 15 21:34:05 EDT 2017: Looking into the site outage. Wasn't *hic* anything I did afaik. Rebooting the file server first... and that seems to have been the fix. Apparent NFSv4 deadlock; if it happens again I'll revert to NFSv3.

Live basic health check:

It's probably time I updated this picture.
