Where old status reports, news items, and links go to die.

Obsolete wiki pages

These topics are no longer relevant. They're here just in case the material in them becomes relevant again.

Archived 20-Sep-2013: The high-availability cluster has been set aside in favor of a more traditional single-box cluster. HA is grand in theory, but in the three years we operated the cluster we had no hardware problems which the HA set-up would have prevented, but many hours of downtime due to problems with the HA software. This mailing-list post has some details.

Here are the pages that documented the state and the diagnostic procedures for the HA cluster when it existed:

Major announcements

  • Upgrading the cluster to a 64-bit operating system.
