Planned Outage on Sunday (9/28)

Rackspace, where we host DripStat, just informed us last night that they will be rebooting all their servers to apply a security patch.

We have been given a very wide time range for this: 6am CDT Sunday to 6am CDT Monday. It is tough to tell when each our servers will go down, for how long, and whether they will all go down at the same time.

Thus you should expect some downtime due to this. Data collection for JVMs will be impacted during this downtime. In the future, we will add more resiliency to our backend to even handle full region downtimes like this.

The main page of the website at dripstat.com will still be available, since its not on Rackspace. But you wont be able to login or access the application or game in any way.
