ACM GBM 3 Fall 2016

Take a look at our
Positions!

This is the game plan for the ACM Council.

NOTICE: Service Interruption Planned - October 15, 2016

In effort to debug intermittent connection issues, SIGSysAdmin will be testing various configurations with router our current router setup.

As a result, all public-facing services will be down on October 15, 2016

Major services include:

  • ACM/LUG-hosted web services
  • SSH to our public hostnames
  • IRC
  • Git
  • VPN

Internal internet connectivity should still be available, so no interruptions of the LAN party should take place.

 

We apologize for the inconvenience. If you have any questions, comments, and/or concerns, please feel free to contact the sigsysadmin mailing list.

 

Regards,
Chase Lee
ACM/LUG Systems Administrator

NOTICE: Slow file access - September 26, 2016

Sysadmins are aware of an issue causing file access times to be slow. The issue was first reported on September 17, 2016. As a result, workstations and servers will lock up and cause massive lag times between user input and expected output.

We are still currently evaluation solutions and are working towards a fix.

If you are using a workstation, we suggest to try to use the acmguest account for now, while we work through this issue. The acmguest account is not reliant on accessing personal files, so lag times shouldn't be an issue.

We apologize for the inconvenience. If you have any questions, comments, and/or concerns, please feel free to contact the sigsysadmin mailing list.

Update (September 28, 2016): Sysadmins may have found the issue. It appears to be a switch malfunction. All systems seem to be nominal at this point. We will continue to monitor the situation and report on any additional issues that may have occurred.

Thanks,
Chase Lee
ACM/LUG Systems Administrator

NOTICE: Unexpected server downtime - Sunday, September 18, 2016

Sysadmins have been notified of a problem causing workstations to freeze up when accessing files within user's home directories.

We are currently evaluating solutions, which caused some unplanned downtime today (September 18, 2016).

We apologize for the inconvenience. If you have any questions, comments, and/or concerns, please feel free to contact the sigsysadmin mailing list.

Thanks,
Chase Lee
ACM/LUG Systems Administrator

NOTICE: Server downtime planned - Sunday, September 11, 2016

Hello All,

Sudoers plans on doing some maintenance on the ACM servers this weekend. Some intermittent downtime of server access is scheduled for this Sunday, September 11, 2016.

Please direct any questions to the ACM Listserv.

Noblesse Oblige,

NOTICE: Server downtime planned between 12PM and 3PM Saturday March 19th

Hello,

Prior to the LAN party on Saturday the SIG Sysadmin group plans on doing some maintenance on the ACM servers. During this period the website, secure shell access, ACM email, and file access may not be available. We do not expect these services to be down to the entire duration of the downtime period and will be sending out additional mail notices before any services are actually taken offline the day of.

For those who will be in the office a little early on the 19th, access to the internet via the ACM LAN network is NOT one of the services that will be offline during this time. :D

Please direct any questions to the SIG mailing list: sigsysadmin@acm.cs.uic.edu
