Sorry for the downtime

Posted by Leah Culver on 8 December 2011

We've had some problems over the past couple of days which resulted in dropped IRC connections and downtime for Grove. The website (as well as IRC) was down for about an hour around 8:20 AM PST yesterday and 6:30 AM PST today.

After some investigation we discovered that our Redis logs had filled the entire disk on our Redis server. This caused both lost connections and downtime for the site. We have since cleared out old logs and set up log rotation to prevent this problem in the future.

We are so sorry that this occurred and that it resulted in downtime and connection problems.
