We’re pushing out a few server-side patches via a rolling restart.
The restart will progress North to South across the grid, giving each region a 5-minute warning before restarting, and will take approximately 4 hours. Region managers can postpone restarts for up to one hour via Region/Estate properties.
The changes include:
- Tweaks to behavior of search flags controlling inclusion of information in the upcoming Search changes
- Fix to internal land sale auction IDs (which was time consuming for Lindens to work around)
- Add ability for Linden Lab to shut down individual inventory databases for maintenance without kicking everyone off of Second Life.
The last change should allow the maintenance work previously mentioned to be performed without a complete outage.
UPDATE @ 2:17 PM: Restart initiated
UPDATE @ 3:50 PM: The restart is about halfway complete at this point, not counting any cleanup we’ll have to do at the end.
UPDATE @ 5:30 PM: Less than an hour remaining.
UPDATE @ 6:52 PM: The rolling restart is complete. A small number of regions (less than 50) remain down, but
will be up shortly.
