Mathserv Rebooted Tuesday Evening
Mathserv was partially unresponsive from ca. 4:30 to 6:45 this evening: some things (printing, parts of the web site, existing shells, some workstations) were up, other things were effectively dead. I restarted the server at 6:45 and as of 6:55 all systems are functional again.
This appears to be related to the brief semi-freeze-up we saw last week; in both cases, a service went a little nuts and swamped the server. I will be investigating.
