BuyVM (LV) Down?

  • rds100rds100 Member


    As you may have noticed, there have been a handful of network blips and
    short outages in our Las Vegas location over the past couple weeks. After
    extensive troubleshooting, we've determined that our router's platform,
    Vyatta, is simply no longer adequate to handle our transit needs for Vegas. At 0000h PST on Wednesday (04 June), we will be bringing the router offline
    to replace the Vyatta platform. We're estimating a total downtime of roughly
    30 minutes, but due to the scope of this maintenance we may have to extend
    the time if necessary, or arrange for a short series of reboots on the
    router in order to apply the needed configurations. Your services will not
    be rebooted or shut down for this maintenance - they will simply lose
    external network. This will only affect the Las Vegas location - if you have
    any services in our New Jersey deployment, they will not be affected. During this maintenance period, our billing platform
    (https://my.frantech.ca) and our VM Management platform
    (https://manage.buyvm.net) will be unavailable, as both are served from Las
    Vegas. We have elected to not migrate these platforms offsite for the move
    due to the short downtime expected - if you wish to follow along with our
    progress, you are welcome to watch both Francisco's (@FrantechCA) and my
    (@Aldryic) Twitter accounts during the maintenance. In addition to replacing Vyatta, we are also planning a build for a backup
    router. In the event of our core router failing, the backup router will keep
    our services online until the core router can be brought back up. This plan
    is still in the development stage, and more information will be released
    once we're ready to deploy it. We apologize for the recent turbulence, and thank you for your patience
    while we work to get these issues dealt with. As always, any questions or
    concerns can be directed to our Support system at https://my.frantech.ca/. Aldryic C'boäs,
    16:47:57 aldryic@xmpp.frantech.ca Frantech Staff

    This is what I love, professionalism in LowEnd providers. Problem arises, support have the intelligence and experience to troubleshoot and all was well within an hour or so.

    Hi :>

  • The network is down for more than 1 hour now, and the uptime for the last 30 days is 99.55%.

  • I believe they send out email about the network downtime earlier, not sure if it's for this though can't remember the mentioned time frame.

    A reminder, Las Vegas maintenance starts in 20 minutes! Shouldn't take long at all (Fran's famous last words).

    Edit: Yay its backup and its 5am time for bed! I need to work on setting up some type of redundancy for Virtuaclub's website this afternoon. We have a substantially redundant cloud but lack of a redundant website. BuyVM down = site is down (No services affected)

    Atleast Fran's DDoS protection works awesome. :)

    It's been a fustercluck with the router.

    As I mentioned in another thread, I already asked Rob about his older RX-8.

    He had one that he replaced when he split his network so there's a good chance I'll just get that ASAP.

    Noted and we've already reached out as I said.

    Earlier this evening I was discussing with Jessie about getting a 2nd router
    in place for failover but it's going to just be a repeat of the same thing if I
    throw in another Linux box.

    I was going to the states for a vacation this weekend in California so there's
    a good chance I'll just head to Vegas for a day and handle that all.

    We'll know more come morning.

    @Francisco If something goes wrong in LV that affects the management panel and billing, perhaps you should consider sending emails to the NJ customers too, because these services affect us too, even though our VPS are up.

    That's just a SuperX. It handles all of our L2 and it handles like a complete beast.
    I love that thing to death and it's never let us down or given a bit of attitude.

    As I said, though, it only does L2 well, L3 performance is really poor since it's all
    switched in software.

    I've always opt'd for linux boxes just because it makes working with our autonull
    a frick load easier. I hate dealing with port mirrors and all that crap but at this
    point we really have no choice in the matter.

    @IPN - I'm sorry. The previous maints we sent notification over. This one things
    went tits up and we said screw it and started scratch. Again. We're back in
    familiar waters (vyatta), though I have a ton of debian experience so it wasn't
    a configuration error on my part.

    As of right now things are all back to normal. Latency is smooth, filtering is happy, etc.

    We'll send a post-mortem in the morning as well as plans for what we're
    going to do to make this right.

    I'll give a closing remark on this.

    What's most frustrating in this is that this platform was fine for upwards of 240 days (the longest uptime run). No issues, no real lag minus some very large floods, etc.

    We never really figured out the issues that happened in February and the latest ones have been a huge headache.

    I'm just annoyed to say the least.

  • jon617jon617 Member

    I have backups and redundant systems so I am not losing anything with the downtime. Upset because of how long it seems to be taking to fix the issues, and there's no notification about the current outage right now.

  • lpnlpn Member

    Yes, down right now :(

    how do you use redundancy on shared? you are not using their ns?
