Upcoming maintenance

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Upcoming maintenance

Unread post by bannination » Fri Oct 04, 2019 7:46 pm

Besides the host doing maintenance in the window below -- I'll be doing some maintenance at around 8pm, but likely the downtime will be so short no one will even notice.

Hello,

We are executing routine maintenance on the physical machine(s) hosting your Droplet(s) listed below. During the above window, we will be performing migrations of all affected Droplets to new physical machines to ensure no unexpected disruption to service.

In order to minimize downtime, we will attempt to perform live migrations in all possible cases. A live migration would result in no downtime, but minor performance decreases in disk I/O and a second or less of packet loss as the network is switched over to the new physical host.

In the event that we are not able to perform a live migration of a Droplet, we will perform an offline migration during which the Droplet will be powered off and migrated offline during the window.

During both live and offline migrations, Cloud Control Panel and API events will not succeed on the affected Droplet(s) including power offs, resizes, and destroys.

Do not hesitate to contact Support if you have any additional questions or concerns. You may do so by opening a ticket, or by replying to this email.

Best Regards,
DigitalOcean

So the host maintenance is October 9 from about 4 am UTC to about noon UTC. In this time zone, I *think* that would be from October 8 about 9 pm to October 9 5 am, PST. Not sure, UTC always confuses me. I can handle EST and EDT ... not UTC.

In any case, if you did your maintenance just now, it went seamlessly.
