Re: 12/09/16 15:00 : multiple servers : emergency network maintenance Hello, We are seeing problems with network flapping which could be caused by denial of service or other network issues in our switching fabric. We are methodically isolating the issue while making sure we don't deteriorate the network further. It's a large network and we are working on it in sections. Our best team is working through this at our data center and it is our goal to have this resolved very soon. In other words, we know this is frustrating and we are on it! Again, our sincere apologies for this inconvenience. __________________ Derrick L. Linux Administration Supervisor HostGator.com, LLC
As common as this happens, I'm sure I'll get all sorts of criticism, but the site went down again. I've contacted the host for a reboot, should be up shortly.... As soon as we know more, I'll post again. Apologies.... but maybe it gives you time to look at more YouTube videos to Gossip about next!?!
