Image server planned downtime 7/29/2008

Recommended Posts

At approximately 8pm Pacific time today the image server will be going down for an upgrade. Due to the size of the current hard drives we use for images we will need 6-8 hours to fully transfer and test the files between the old and new drives. During this time the Geocaching.com web site will be functioning fine but images on the image server will not be shown. You will also be unable to upload new photos. Expect to see a server not found error when you try to view these images. You will also be unable to see geocaching stats banners.

 

Thanks for your patience while we perform the upgrade! It is necessary since we are down to the last few gigabytes on the hard drives.

As of 6:15 AM Pacific time, the bulk of the upgrade has been completed and the image server is back online. It is still doing some of its own internal work so image performance will be noticeably degraded for much of the day.

 

The final step in the process will require a quick reboot, and I hope to complete that this evening.

 

If you notice anything wrong (other than slow images), please let us know.
