|[eclipse.org-committers] Eclipse.org outage|
As you may have noticed, eclipse.org was totally down for a few hours earlier today. We are slowly bringing things back up, so we appreciate your patience.
One power supply in a 14-disk tray literally exploded (sparks were coming out of it) and that tripped the circuit breaker for the power strip that our switching gear was on.
Coincidentally, one of the two NFS servers (which is on pair of totally difference power circuits) ceased to respond to network activity, and is now failing to restart. This server hosted shared files for CVS, Git, SVN but not downloads. We've therefore reverting to using our second NFS server for all shared files. This means that until we restore service to the failed NFS server, most of eclipse.org will appear to be sluggish/slow and will be increasingly slow as more concurrent builds occur.
While in this state, we would appreciate using the build and Hudson servers for essential builds only. I will keep you informed on any progress we make in restoring our data backend.
