Seems to be gone in the course of the last hour or so. (I presume the finger status@ ... facility is defunct; haven't been able to make it work in a while.)

Ubi chiark?
Ma boomerang won' come back. I mean, my packets sent to chiark don't come back. Vanished sometime between 09:32 and 10:12.

Apparently no connectivity to chiark from BT or from the CUDN.

finger chiark@status.chiark.greenend.org.uk suggests it thinks it's happy, though ...

"Is it just me?" ...

I'm not managing to connect to chiark this morning. It's responding to ping, but I get "connection closed by host" on all ssh attempts. Fingering chiark@status.chiark.greenend.org.uk gets connection refused.

Anyone know what's up? I'll see if anyone is on irc on rapun :)

"is it just me?"
chiark seems to be very unreachable at the moment ...

(chiark@status.chiark seems to confirm)

Checking SAUCE logs
Stupid question, but how do I check SAUCE logs for rejected mail?

chiark unhappy?
It hung at about 00:10 as I suspended a screen session, and stopped being pingable a minute or so later.

I'm going to feel very embarrassed if this was a scheduled downtime 8-)

Is it just me (or my client ...) or is chiark irc rather unwilling to allow clients to connect?

Closing Link: <userid> by localhost (Sorry, your connection class is full -
try again later or try another server)

for appropriate value of <userid>

chiark down or inaccessible
Since I happened to see it happen, chiark crashed at 18:27 this evening. Sysadmin made the following announcement on IRC immediately beforehand I'm going to kill all udptunnels on chiark as other people may be affected. I may drop from IRC (but I hope not).
This induced the same kernel bug that was one of the causes of the problems during the upgrade. Hopefully it will be back soon.

ETA: And indeed it was.

... if it ain't got that ping
Anybody know what's up with chiark? It's returning pings, but I don't seem to be able to log in... Or is it just me?

15:36 < Emperor> chiark is being put back into its rack.
15:36 < steph> What was wrong with it?
15:36 < Emperor> LILO doom. IWJ has asked me to ping it and when it starts 
                 answering, to log in and see how doomed it looks before 
                 calling him back. So, err, don't all start your ssh clients 
                 just yet ;)
15:37 < Emperor> it'll take a while for them to re-rack it and for it to boot, 
Edit: yes, chiark is back up, and it is possible to log in. Ian apparently can't log into it from Redbus, but is on his way back to Cambridge. Of course it's still in mid-upgrade, so not all may be working. Use your own judgement as to whether to log back in or not.

Remember that for irc it's possible to use a local irc client with rapun as your irc server for chiark-irc instead - if your machine is not in ox or cam.ac.uk but you have a trusted fixed IP address ask Emp to add you to the ACL.

I'm wondering if I can maintain my unblemished record of causing chiark to return within minutes by observing its unavailability here.

chiark@status.chiark.greenend.org.uk reports

Hard crash during upgrade, not fixed by power cycler. Investigating.
-iwj 20:30 19.02.2006

Appears to be down or unreachable.

Which doesn't sound like a fun time ...

spamcop woe
So livejournal and chiark are both blocked in the same day. Nice!

Another attempt to get #chiark to return to life by pure unadulterated coincidence, by posting something here.

At the moment, login.chiark.greenend.org.uk is un-pingable, chiark@status.chiark.greenend.org.uk takes a long time to respond and then reports "Appears to be down or unreachable." Looks like a crash rather than a routing problem?

Madder flake
Is anybody else having trouble with chiark today? It's been more flaky than a 99 for me all day, and I've lost the connection completely about 6 times so far (twice in the last 20 minutes). Sometimes I can ping chiark but can't log in, other times I can't even ping it. All other connections to the outside world seem okay.

Chiark routing problems
Blackcat's dodgy router struck again at about 09:40 this morning, causing an approximately 7 minute routing outage to chiark.
9:42 am
Testing a theory, that posting here will cause network failures to mend themselves ...

[ destination net unreachable from rbi-lon-xchangepoint.blackcat.net.uk , as last time ]
