Wed, 2014-01-15 10:27

I had to restart the server a second ago as it was broken, seems to have fixed it.  Not sure whats going on, but my IT guy is in Japan on honeymoon so a bit difficult to get him to fix.  We are setting up a full monitoring system when he returns so hopefully be able to track when it slows.  Still something not quite right unfortunately, but will hopefully get onto fixing it when he returns.

It seems to bork once a week at this stage where I just need to soft reboot the server which takes around 2 minutes.  Its better than the hassles I used to go through with last server, just frustrating at the frequency of shutdowns.
