    I am taking all servers offline for emergency maintenance in a few minutes. I will update this thread with info as I am able. This is related to the lag we have been experiencing in all servers over the last few days.

    It "feels" like a storage problem. I haven't troubleshot *nix io issues in a very long time, but let me know if you'd like some assistance... If you're not already monitoring disk queue length, that's where I would be watching.

    Testing of the hardware has begun. The test will take a minimum of 30 minutes. I will update with my findings when the test is complete.

    Cool. Thanks, c0w. I'm sure this is *not* what you wanted to do with your Sunday! We do truly appreciate it, though.

    Testing is 50% complete. Seems to be taking quite a while to test the memory.

    If all the hardware tests pass successfully, it means there is some kind of problem with the software running on the server, which is a much more complicated issue to resolve. We shall see...

    I recently read that IT professionals don't use things like "smart" TVs, doorknobs, thermostats, refrigerators, anything. Too much software to upgrade, maintain, etc. Is this true with you too, c0w? ROFL
