Spam problem, lot of mails cannot be sent

Sylvain Le Gall - 2015-06-11 11:37 - Site Admin

I recently got an alert that the forge server was sending a lot of spam. After inspection it turns out that there is a positive feedback loop in between sending mail requests to moderate spam on mailing list and ending up being considered as a spammer (i.e. you ask to moderate a message "Sell Ur Gold For Mo$$ney" every day and after a few day the forge is considered as a spammer).

Migration starting this evening, bzr disabled for now

Unfortunately the forge keeps rebooting. I suspect that it cannot hold the usual "bot" traffic with the amount of memory it has or one of the hard drive is failing.

Earlier today, I was connected while the Forge was under heavy load. This has often been the case before most of the recent reboot.

OCaml Forge maintenance

Sylvain Le Gall - 2014-10-15 06:58 - Site Admin

Recently the OCaml forge has required a lot of hardware reboots. The server is probably near end of life and I need to upgrade the whole infrastructure to a recent server.

The admin team plans to upgrade the forge system. There will be various upgrade on the system. So some program can be broken in the next coupld of days. I expect to spend in between 1 and 3 days, depending on what breaks on the system.

Disk space problem solved

Sylvain Le Gall - 2011-11-02 09:26 - Site Admin

The server has run out of disk space, due to buggy program eating /tmp space. The bug is not fixed but the problem will only show up again in a few months. It will hopefully give me time to solve it.
