The rolling restart has kicked off slightly behind schedule, and is running now.
Last night we experienced an intermittent inventory database failure. The database recovered but needs maintenance. This requires us to log out a small number of Residents using that database for a short period of time (30 minutes).
As noted in the blog earlier, we tracked down and fixed an inventory bug that was plaguing some Residents. We’ve decided to do a rolling restart this evening to get this fix out to the grid ASAP as the fix was a relatively minor change, but with a potentially large impact. The rolling restart will commence at approximately 11:oo AM PST on 12/12/07, and should take about 2 hours. We’ll update this post as soon as the restart completes. Thank you for your patience.
