Extended downtime 23th April 12:00-00:00 GMT
Friday this week we have scheduled an extended downtime for the first phase of a big hardware upgrade on the EVE cluster in London (Tranquility). The downtime will be from noon till midnight 12:00 – 00:00 Friday 2004.04.23 this week.
This phase of the update focuses on I/O bottlenecks in the cluster, particularity our Fiber Channel disk array that will after the update be capable of serving up to 10.000 transactions per second. This is more than three times the current capacity.
The second phase will take place next week and focus on memory and CPU power of the cluster.
As you might have noticed last weekend the rapid growth of EVE caught up with our hardware upgrade plans. Due to this we have to announce this long downtime, we hope you bear with us through these 12 hours and join us in a lag free celebration at midnight on Friday.
