Status of upgrade to StatusNet 1.0.0 on Identi.ca and StatusNet Cloud
We're using this blog post to keep status updates going for StatusNet 1.0.0.
2011-09-16 15:20 EDT: Made a blog post (yay)!
2011-09-16 16:50 EDT: Sites still live till 10AM EDT
2011-09-17 12:15 EDT: about to push new code to StatusNet cloud, which will take down all sites.
2011-09-17 12:30 EDT: all sites are off-line. Splitting some of our database clusters into smaller clusters so we have enough room to do upgrades. Also, getting some PFK.
2011-09-17 13:30 EDT: some sites are moved to their new homes, so we're going to start doing in-place upgrades, and they'll start coming back online. Also, PFK turned out to be delicious! Who knew? Hopefully our fingers don't slip on the keyboards.
2011-09-17 14:30 EDT: some sites starting to come back on-line. Discovering interesting bugs, and fixing them.
2011-09-17 15:45 EDT: a lot of sites coming back on line; Event plugin (on by default) throwing some errors due to using PHP 5.2.x on our production machines. Checking that out now.
2011-09-17 16:45 EDT: Fixed some bugs, some sites (like evan.status.net ) are up.
2011-09-17 18:30 EDT: Many sites are up; some sites are still moving to their new database servers. We're doing post-upgrade processing on big sites like identi.ca, which will probably run overnight.
2011-09-18 11:30 EDT: Still going! We're starting to bring some of our second cluster of sites back on-line. identi.ca is still processing ALTER TABLE statements, but it's fairly far down the list. Sites that are on-line are having problems with Salmon slaps.
2011-09-18 15:00 EDT: We thought we had identi.ca done, but we'd just had a first part of the table upgrades complete. Still going! Sites on cluster 2 should come online again soon.
2011-09-18 17:00 EDT: We've discovered a major bug in our upgrade script that set seriously
sub-optimal suboptimal flags in our database. We are pretty sure we can recover without a problem, but it will probably be many more hours before sites will be re-enabled.
2011-09-18 17:00 EDT: If you're really in need of StatusNet, maybe this is the day you download the code and set up your own site?
2011-09-18 20:40 EDT: We've recovered all the problems with sites that had already been upgraded with the upgrade script. Identi.ca, which has our biggest database, is busy swapping its 75M-row table from MySQL to InnoDB. We think it should go overnight just fine. Slave servers are lagging considerably, but we think they'll catch up quick.
2011-09-19 09:00EDT: We've completed data conversion for identi.ca; we're going to run some tests and then start bringing the site online later this morning. Other status.net sites are coming on-line at a pretty fast rate.
2011-09-19 17:00EDT: Most sites are now reenabled. We had identi.ca up for a while, but heavy load and slave lag made us shut them down for a while.
2011-09-19 23:00EDT: Identi.ca is back up. We had some poor performance due to exceptionally hard queries on the database slaves, but we managed to disable the optional functionality for those queries, and slaves are caught up or catching up. Almost all sites are up to date now; the rest will be online tomorrow. We'll also start re-enabling extended functionality.
2011-09-20 09:30EDT: We'll be gradually bringing other functionality back on-line on identi.ca and other sites. see Service status page for updates.
