Cygnus head node failure and recovery

This entry was posted by on Friday, 5 August, 2011 at

Hey folks,

Unfortunately the Cygnus head node had a failure at about 3:50pm. Part of this was related to the disk failure a couple of weeks ago on the virtual machine storage complex and part of it was the virtual machine’s limited resources.

We had a secondary ready to go in case this happened, and that secondary is now operating as the primary. This machine has double the allocations of the original to help eliminate some of the resource related slowdowns.

No running or scheduled jobs were affected, and no data was lost in the failure.
