I just want to notify everyone that my ISP is updating their core
routers, so there will be a brief period (30 minutes-2 hours) of
downtime on Friday night for the Rabbit wiki.
Here's the full message:
This Friday, October 19th, 2007 at 10:00PM Pacific time we will be
performing emergency maintenance on our core routers. We are going
to be upgrading the operating system on one of our core routers in
our main facility, and one primary distribution router at our LAX
facility. The total downtime shouldn’t be much longer than it takes
these to reboot into the newer operating system, and reestablish
the links to the outside world. The maintenance window is two
hours, though we hope everything from a network standpoint will be
completed in 30 minutes.
These upgrades will address many of the issues we have been having
over the past months. Cisco has recommended this version of IOS to
potentially solve a network flooding issue we have seen
intermittently, and if it does not, will allow us to escalate the
case even further. The upgrade will also give us support for new
hardware we have purchased for the routers themselves, increased
diagnostic gathering capability, and bring online our redundant
supervisor line card.
We apologize for the short notice and overall inconvenience of this
upgrade, however this will hopefully fix various outstanding bugs
that crop up during the day. We are attempting to do as much as
possible with this reboot to minimize further downtime.
All systems will be affected by this upgrade.
