There is currently an issue with OVH that caused one database server to stop responding inside the VLAN.
This issue is affecting about 1/3 of the instances hosted.
I'm really sorry about this but hopefully they will fix this soon.
If I get more information I will post it here.
I will be starting the upgrade to v2.8.4 for all Mastodon instances hosted by Masto.host
Less than 30 seconds of downtime should be expected.
I will be starting the upgrade to v2.8.3 for all instances hosted by Masto.host
The expected downtime should be less than 1 minute.
Upgrade to v2.8.2 for Instances hosted by Masto.host will be starting now.
Expected downtime should be less than 30 seconds.
You can find the upgrade details in the official release page of Mastodon https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/
I will be starting the upgrade to v2.8.0 for all instances hosted in Masto.host
There should be under 1 minute of downtime.
v2.8.0 brings a lot of changes, you can read about it here: https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2019/04/mastodon-2.8/
Or the changelog: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v2.8.0
To be clear, all instances are working normally it's the network access to the OVH data centers that is affected as traffic that was passing on the POP that is down is over loading the alternative routes.
Some users will not be affected at all (in Europe everyone should be able to access without a problem) but other locations can experience the slowdown.
Until the issue is solved the only work around is to use a VPN with the location set to Europe.
Service degradation notice:
Currently users from some locations are experience a slowdown in access and usage of instances hosted in Masto.host
This is happening because one of the most important POP of OVH network is down.
OVH is the company that hosts all servers for Masto.host and they are working on the problem: http://travaux.ovh.net/?do=details&id=37330&PHPSESSID=db7ca341fe52326fb80bb6ddc868914f
I will continue updating this thread as I have more information.
Really sorry about the trouble this is causing.
I will be starting to install the update to v2.7.4 for all instances hosted in Masto.host
There should be less than 30 seconds of downtime.
