Problems with our file/image server

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 09 Sep 2002 3:13

We've experienced some serious problems with our joint file/image server today. Our log analyzing software caused the server to freeze and therefor pages wouldn't load as browsers tried to retrieve the stylesheet and image files from this server.
As quickly as we noticed this, we built up a backup system that allows us to redirect the requests in case of a failure on our file server, to another file server. Currently only issue is with the local downloads which may cause some problems, we are working on that one and hopefully we can kick the file server back online as well.

We apologize all the inconvenience this may have caused.
