Default Server Down For Short Time

Around 2:30AM PST on 1-18-03 our dedicated server went down.

Ring ring ring goes the phone and after my reboot it appears everything is fine. Looks like total down time was about 20 minutes. At this time I don't have a clue as to what caused this as the box was running when my sleppy eyes checked things.

My appolagies for the interuption in service.

I was having a really neat "dream" but I hope I can find it again

At least I know the site monitor works like clockwork and calls every number its supposed to faster than greased lightning.

I should have taken a screen capture of our previous uptime which was over 140 days.

I use:

http://www.alertra.com/

So far this service has been outstanding. Reasonably priced, uses 4 diverse locations, robust notify schedule, detailed logs to help geeks who can't reach the Board, and a low cost exstra charge for the actual alert.

Scoobs, I'm confused about your post. I think you mean that you can't reach the Board. Sorry... I just checked my logs and don't see a problem at my end. Perhaps it's your ISP and or a temporary "peering" problem which is specific to your routing.

As I'm sure we all know, these are very very very complex issues. Most hosts monitor port 80 free of charge but Iv'e never really felt comfortable with this feature even though it has worked in the past but did not work during this last outage.

Iv'e not joined their affiliate program yet but you might want to take a look as it's handled via shareasale.

HTH
