ukhighram3 offline

Posted at: 23rd August 2018 - 06:21

Thursday, 23 August 2018, 06:21 - We have just been made aware of an event concerning this node. Further investigation is ongoing, more details will be posted to this issue as they become available.
Thursday, 23 August 2018, 06:38 - Our datacenter has confirmed that they're experiencing a network event that's affecting this server. An explicit ETA has not been communicated, but we remain hopeful about service restoration soon.
Thursday, 23 August 2018, 08:40 - This remains in progress. We will update this as we have more information. 
Thursday, 23 August 2018, 10:01 - Datacenter has confirmed that this is still in progress. 
Thursday, 23 August 2018, 11:22 - An update from the datacenter has specified that a PDU in the rack where this server is located is malfunctioning, and they are working on moving the server to a temporary rack to get it back online. 
Thursday, 23 August 2018, 13:49 - We continue to wait for the server to be moved to a different rack to be put back online. 
Thursday, 23 August 2018, 15:15 - We have noted that the server is back online, and we're waiting for confirmation of stability. 
Thursday, 23 August 2018, 15:45 - Confirmed that server will remain online for the foreseeable future. We will be providing one month of credit for the downtime. All VPS are online and running, so if your server is still offline or inaccessible, please reach out to us and we'll investigate further. 

dalstorage4 disk array rebuild

Posted at: 7th August 2018 - 00:08

Tuesday, 07 August 2018, 00:08 - Earlier today, our dalstorage4 node suffered a disk failure and it is currently operating in a degraded state. There unfortunately isn't enough I/O to go around, so I/O bound programs are taking a very long time to respond (due to the I/O wait). We're investigating, further updates will be posted to this issue. Customers not on the dalstorage4 node are not affected by this issue.

Wednesday, 08 August 2018, 09:03 - This situation does remain in progress. Your VPS should be online and accessible though, since the I/O contention seems to come in short infrequent waves. If you're having an issue with access beyond being slower than usual, please inquire and we can investigate. 

Thursday, 09 August 2018, 08:23 - This continues to be in progress. Reboots via the client area/VM control system have been disabled as rebooting won't magically fix this situation and will only contribute to more I/O contention. If you need your VPS rebooted and are truly unable to figure out how otherwise, please ticket in and we'll review your request. 

Friday, 10 August 2018, 11:46 - We're going to shut down the server to replace the drives and let it rebuild without VM contention; this will take less time than if we left VMs running, resulting less net time back to normal. This shouldn't have much of an impact on actual usage given the speeds of the server as it stands. The current estimate is 24 hours for array rebuild.

Saturday, 11 August 2018, 06:25 - All the processes successed and we have booted up the VPS's. Everything should be healthy at this point.

Storage VPS Line Meltdown and Spectre Maintenance

Reboot for Meltdown / Spectre patching

Posted at: 6th January 2018 - 07:58

Today, Saturday January 6th, 2018, we will be rebooting host nodes serving all VPSDime Linux VPS to execute a new kernel patched against the recently discovered Meltdown and Spectre exploits.

No doubt that in recent days you have noted news that two vulnerabilites have been discovered in all CPUs, ranging back to the development of speculative execution on modern processors over 20 years ago. Although both attacks are based on the same general principle, Meltdown allows malicious programs to gain access to higher-privileged parts of a computer's memory, while Spectre steals data from the memory of other applications running on a machine. Nearly every modern computer in use is vulnerable at some level.

Our virtualization vendor for the Linux VPS product has recently produced a patch to mitigate these two issues, and this patch has been generally accepted by the computing community at large as being an effective method to ensure that the exploit is ineffective. At this time there is no evidence that the exploit has been applied to gain access to other systems, either on our host nodes or elsewhere.

Due to the grievous nature of these attacks, we are updating all host nodes and rebooting them immediately to execute the new kernel. Note that all vendors of kernel live patching are either taking a very long time to implement a live patch (CloudLinux's Kernelcare) or have directly stated that a live patch won't be available (Canonical's Livepatch). Therefore, a reboot of the host node is mandatory in this situation.

We apologize for the inconveience that you will experience due to this, however, please note that we are committed to the utmost stability and security of your virtual machines.

There are some key points to note:

- We'll use this page to make further announcements regarding this reboot action. So please follow up with this page for the updates.

- All VPS will be gracefully shut down, similar to how the "shutdown -h now" or "halt" command works inside your VPS' operating system.

- This update and reboot action will make absolutely no changes to your VPS whatsoever. No changes will be made to your configuration, software, applications, data, or anything else regarding your VPS directly. All VPS will be checked that they are running after the reboot, however, if an application or software you've installed is not responding, please log in to your VPS and troubleshoot your software and make sure your services are running before opening a ticket.

- Barring any unexpected issues, we expect no more than 30 minutes per host node to reboot. This is the time for VPS to shut down and host node to complete a reboot; your VPS may take a bit longer to boot after the host node comes back online. Your patience is appreciated.

Please note that we are unable to provide a certain time frame for your VPS to be shut down because we are going to apply the security patch on one host node at a time. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience of a reboot.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please click here and open a ticket with us.


We're working through the reboots now.

If you view your service and see "This node is locked", the node has not yet been rebooted.

If you view your service and see the usual start/stop/reboot buttons and traffic/memory/load graphs, the reboot action has been completed for that node and any services on that node will remain online.


All the nodes in Dallas, TX but 2 have been rebooted on Saturday January 6th, 2018.


Sunday January 7th, 2018:

We are continuing to reboot the nodes in our other locations today.
