Virmach is Down

I can't access my server.
I can't access billing.
I can only access LET.

So, I posted this on LET.

  • Billing works fine for me? Seems like NY10GKVM series are not affected.

    How did you take a screenshot of the status page in the billing panel if billing is inaccessible?

    Thanked by 3MasonR t0ny0 coreflux
  • I am able to login to billing just fine.

  • how many millions are you losing?

  • My vps is working fine here.

    No you're not VirMach because you don't have any servers in "New York City" - fess up they're in Jersey!

    My vps is working fine! I can also access billing normally.

  • Web is up for me

    @yokowasis maybe this would be a good time to change the (clickbait) title?

    you know ... while you're waiting for those nodes in New Jersey to get sorted out

    By the way, my billing and my Buffaloe (== best New York, lol) are coming up just fine

    the title is virmach is down. My server which is in virmach is inaccessible. I believe that is classified as "down". How is that clickbait ? it's just the truth, and the title is nothing but the truth.

    Billing is also "sometimes" down for me, it's very slow even cloudflare time out.

    How much I lost is irrelevant. This section is called "outage". I can post in this section whenever a provider is having downtime. I don't really care if my idling vps is having downtime here and there. But unfortunately my virmach vps is my remote workstation. So, I give a shit about it.

    The point is you made the title "Virmach is Down", implying the entirety of VirMach is offline, which is far from the truth. Make the title more specific to the circumstances such as:

    • "My VirMach NYC VPS is Down! Losing Millions!"
    • "VirMach NYC/NJ Infrastructure Offline"
    • "VirMach NYC Went Tits Up!"
    • or some other creative derivative you can come up with

    yokowasis said: Billing is also "sometimes" down for me, it's very slow even cloudflare time out.

    "Can't access billing" implies that their billing portal is completely offline, which also isn't the case. Looks to me like just your server details in the billing panel are unavailable (which makes sense if their NJ/NYC infrastructure is taking a nap).

    The thread itself is fine and is probably a good awareness thread for those who also have boxes down in NJ/NYC, just the wording and implications drawn from it are concerning. Semantics is important, especially to us devout VirMachians.

    Okay. I will take that into consideration next time I put the title. At the time I just lazy to go into details. Also billing is sometimes inaccessible. It throws cloud flare time out. Not just server details.

  • Yes Virmach had a network outage. But, IMHO they handled it very professionally and their website provided details so users would know that they were aware of the problem and that they were attempting to repair it. This is how it should be done! Kudo’s to Virmach. Stuff happens, but they did the right thing by notifying users.

    The servers themselves are actually fine, think of it as having a nice mountain cabin that you can’t get to because there is a rockslide on the road. The cabins fine and you’re fine. It’s that pesky packet data highway that had the issue. What makes me furious is when providers don’t give out any information. In this case the information was posted for everyone to see. Yes the billing page was slow to load, I care much more about the data on my server than the billing page. I have many instances with Virmach and only one server was affected. But the server itself wasn’t affected, just the downstream networking that had a failure. All cloud infrastructure still relies on physical hardware, and when you’re dealing with physical hardware sooner or later there will be a failure. This little bump in the road IMHO is a nonissue. We plan for events like this and our failover took hold. When the network issue was fixed, things went back to normal. But Virmach kept me informed, and that is what a good provider does when they care about customer satisfaction. Good job, Virmach!

    Yes. I really don't give two shits whether your server is down, but I care if Virmach as a whole, does. If you can't tell the serious difference between blanket "$company is down" and "$company has an outage on east coast", that's on you.

    I can tell difference. I just too lazy to put it on my title. If you draw conclusion based on the title without actually reading the content, and somehow you have a problem with it. That's on you.

  • In a nutshell: OP starts a thread with a misleading title (only part of Virmach is down, not the whole of it but the title says otherwise), and people keeps pointing out that the title is wrong and should be changed, but OP says I know, but fuck you I'm lazy and will click-bait further users!

    If you know you're too lazy to create a proper thread, then don't do create one. I'm sure other people will post it properly anyway.

  • yeah ... I mean, I did stop what I was doing (reading LET) to check and make sure all my virmachs were indeed still online. And I imagine possibly at least a few dozen other people may have done the same.

    "There are dozens of us!"

    And I did (and still do) think it was kind of a dick move for @yokowasis to be so dickish about being "too lazy" to update the title, or even write an accurate one in the first place, and blah blah blah.

    But I seem to be hungry for meaningless drama, so I do thank him for this thread.

    And while I would encourage my fellow LETters to be cognizant of their tenuous credibility in this online life, and to diligently endeavor always to maintain the exceptionally high standard expected of all posts here on LET ... ah, what? Lol.

    We are still on page 1. Need to post more comment for that damn provider tag requirements.

    Whoosh.

    You've clearly demonstrated that you do not, in fact, understand the point of the title. Just stop arguing. Just learn from it and move on.

    You make it sound like you did everyone a favour, when absolutely nobody thinks that. It's fine to post these threads when provider isn't providing updates, but they were and all concerned customers were informed. You just added confusion, not helped.

    I appreciated their post.

    I like to find out about outages concerning providers I have services with (VirMach) as well as ones I don't and that's one of the reasons I like LET.
