We have been informed that Rackspace will be rebooting servers later in the week for security upgrades. This will impact the availability of PrimeGrid's servers.
More details will be made available later, but as of right now, here's the schedule:
The main primegrid server will be rebooted between 2015-10-28 07:00:00 and 2015-10-28 09:00:00 UTC. ** COMPLETE **
The BOINC database replica will be rebooted between 2015-10-29 03:00:00 UTC and 2015-10-29 05:00:00 UTC. ** COMPLETE **
PRPNet will be rebooted between 2015-10-28 03:00:00 UTC and 2015-10-29 05:00:00 UTC. ** COMPLETE **
One thing that's not yet known is whether the server will be down briefly during the reboot or whether we'll proactively shut them down prior to the maintenance window. Best case scenario is each server is down for several minutes; worst case scenario is each server is down for the full 2 hours.
When the PRPNet server is down, all of PRPNet will be unavailable.
When the main PrimeGrid server is down, all web access on www.primegrid.com and all BOINC client services will be unavailable.
When the BOINC database replica is down, all PRPNet and BOINC features should be available, but there may be some delay in producing web pages on www.primegrid.com. Also, some offline activities such as stats generation may be temporarily disabled.
More details will follow.
