Gitlab Public Access FIXED!

The public access to the ACM Gitlab instance located at acm.cs.uic.edu/git has been fixed and should now be accessable through normal means. Please report any further issues to webmasters AT acm.cs.uic.edu.

Gitlab Public Access Offline

Due to an unknown problem with our web hosting setup, the Gitlab web interface and repos are currently not accessable via acm.cs.uic.edu/git. We are working on steps to resolve the issue, but in the mean time you will be unable to push or pull from our git server. The Git reposiatories themselves are unaffected by this issue so any data on our system will be there when access is restored. Sorry for any inconveince this has caused.

Intermittent Internet Connectivity - Fall 2015

It has come to the attention to the ACM/LUG System Administrators that the internet connection seems to drop randomly. In general, the service interruption lasts for only a few minutes. We are currently looking into the issue, but as of yet, we do not have any evidence as to why this actually happens. This issue is difficult to debug due to the fact that it does not appear to happen at any set intervals. The System Administrators will continue to look into the issue, however we do not currently have an estimate as to when this issue will be resolved. We will attempt some infrastructure changes over the next few months in order to mitigate the occurrence of these outages. We apologize for any inconvienences these outages may have caused.

Affected Servers:

  • ACM/LUG Workstations
  • Most servers on internal IP ranges

Affected Services:

  • Internet Connectivity
  • Wifi Internet Connectivity
  • VOIP Phone
  • Websites

If you have any questions about this, please contact your friendly neighborhood Sysadmins at: sigsysadmin [at] acm.cs.uic.edu

Unscheduled Server Downtime August 31, 2015

On August 31, 2015 around 10:10AM, the main servers experienced a power outage.  All equipment abruptly lost power and yielded unreachable until system administrators could restore power around 11:20AM.  The root cause was due to overloading a circuit breaker due to installation of additional servers by another ACM member.
 
All services & servers were affected.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
