(11/18) chainBB downtime reportsteemCreated with Sketch.

in chainbb-news •  last year

chainBB was down for approximately 3 hours today due to a hard reboot (not of my doing) of the server it's API and blockchain processors exist on. Thanks to @lukestokes for the heads up that chainBB wasn't working.

The services are still catching up (indicated by the message at the top of the screen) using public RPC nodes while the local full node it uses comes back online. steemd has a nasty habit of corrupting the block_log when not shut down gracefully, so currently the server is pulling a fresh copy from a seed node and will then replay/reindex the blockchain afterwards. I imagine this will take another 3-4 hours to complete, and during that time, new content may be slower than usual to appear on the site.

Currently the server infrastructure behind chainBB is robust, but not incredibly fault tolerant. I have plans written up to migrate the entire system to a high availability cluster at some point early next year, it's just a matter of time and money, since building out a true non-beta environment will cost around 10x-20x more than what I'm paying now.

I'll do my best to report whenever these outages occur and the reasons behind them - hopefully in a more structured way in the future.

You're doing a great with chainbb. I love the "preview" feature before posting

Thanks @jesta for the prompt updates and for your effort for quick fixing.
Your effort is fully appreciated

It's normal to expect such downtimes in artificial intelligences, like host servers, besides, your plans of migrating the entire system to a high availability cluster, to me is a huge plus.

Fantastic job and responsibility you shoulder, your post on steemitblog yesterday was just too amazing

Thanks for the update, @jesta

Thanks for the update. I noticed it earlier while at work and was curious what caused the issue. I appreciate you taking the time to keep us informed.

You have appointed a vote verdict. If you want to reactivate the manual recall, please clear your deputy.

Hi my friend, I know it's not a big deal but I just want to point out a typo I found on the site. When signing in this screen pops up and it says "Please use your use your keys". Cheers and happy Thanksgiving



Haha thanks - will get that fixed. I miss that stuff a lot when I'm copying/pasting words around :)

Thanks for the update @jesta

Peace over all of us, very nice post from either the word or the appearance
