Downtimes Migration Problems Transports

First status information after migration

Ok, the main virtual host jabber.hot-chilli.net and all private virtual hosts moved to the new server today. Also the website and the transport data.

“Transport data” because the transports itself do not run, yet. We need some help from Spectrum maintainers – maybe there is something basicly wrong with the new config files or Spectrum 2 is still too buggy. We will see. Until then please stay tuned and be patient – we do not want to have the transports offline for a long time, but it can take some days.

Also Prosody is having some issues on which we are working hard, especially the maintainer of Prosody, MattJ. Our server is having a lot of load, also “crazy” users ;-) and a Debian system which seems to create more problems with Prosody than other Linux distributions. So if the Jabber server itself is offline from time to time in the next days, we are working on it.

Server flatlined third day in a row

At the moment we don’t have any idea why. As I am in Italy right now I will investigate this after my return home in the middle of the week. Please stay tuned.

Is anybody aware of any current exploits for ejabberd?

Numerous crashes…

…happened the last days. This occured out of nothing. Same symptomatic like some time ago when the Jabber server thread suddenly took all available resources and killed the server itself.

We digged deep into the problem and hope, we found a solution for it – which we implemented about one hour ago. A short service outage took place because of a restart to activate the setting.

Hopefully we got to the problem.
