    yes the FIB came by and...overloaded my routing table?

    No, it seems fiberhub lost a strip and one of my switches wasn't dual cabled.

    Should be sorted shortly.

    As a final update.

    The switch is fried. when things came back that rack didnt have networking. That rack held billing, stallion, and one of our infiniband switches. I had the DC temp cable things into near by switches to get things going again.

    I'll have a formal rfo from fiberhub soon and will email everyone with it.

  • Fwiw when the main site came back online, my vps was offline and rebooting brought it back. No big deal but it would be nice if Stallion had an API for that ;).

    It does, we emulate the solus api.

    We ran a mass boot once we confirmed everything was pinging.

    Where did Google and Oracle leave off on their java API fight? Is it legal to make compatible API's that don't violate copyright?

    Depends if there's a legally recognised patent covering the API. For solus that's a definite no.

    Imo patenting an API is far too broad. It's the implementation that should be protected if needed, the API should be a free for all. But, copyright law doesn't always make sense unfortunately. E.g. there's a company in this market who has held a trademark for a dictionary word for around a decade.

    Copyright, trademark and patents are three different things.

    I didn't say they weren't. They all fall under the same area of law though and share a lot of similarities.

  • My slice rebooted this morning, wonder what is up. I didn't get any kind of notification before or after. I'll survive but I had to poke a thingy or two after the reboot.

    Isolated I'm guessing at least, just checked mine and didn't see anything. I have enough of them now to be a relevant data point, it seems.

    You should know better than to bump month old, unrelated topic. Start a new one or open a ticket and ask the guy who would know.

  • Hi.

    @Francisco you are the owner of the switch, correct? Let me understand what happens in these situations. The DC replaces the failed switch for you (so you get a new one)? Or you have to have a replacement in place?

    You're responding to an old post, but to answer - he has spares on-site and/or buys/borrows parts from DC until he can order replacements.

    Basically this.

    I normally keep spares on site of most things.

    I know, quite off topic, sorry.

    But even if it's their fault you have to put another piece of hardware from your pocket?

    FH replaced the switch out of their own pocket as well as didn't charge for the admin time to install it.

    It's a shitty situation but they've always done right by us and we try to do the same.
