ONID services outage Sunday October 19th 8:06am – 8:31am

Posted in Outages by outages on October 19th, 2014 at 11:30 am

The following ONID services were unavailable Sunday October 19th from 8:06am to 8:31am:

– ONID Webmail (https://webmail.oregonstate.edu) – MyONID website (ONID Password changes, ONID Sign-Up) – ONID SSO (the old SSO system, not CAS) – Cacti graphs (http://cacti.onid.oregonstate.edu)

An internal MySQL database service was restarted to fix an apparent memory leak, and the restart took much longer than anticipated. Unfortunately, some memory was not recovered so the server must be rebooted. The reboot will be scheduled for a future date.
