Just figured out that the site was down for about a day or so this weekend.Â Apparently during a re-model of the office/data center I disconnected the router and never even noticed that the site was down because between putting the dry-wall up and trying to sleep off the injuries to my aching muscles, I hadn’t checked the site.
I think I need to get What’s-Up on this network to do some monitoring, what do you think?
Yes, I’m geek enough to have a rack in my basement, no SAN though.Â I used to have a Clariion 5300 that I picked up on EBay, but the power and cooling bills were killing me.Â
So I opted instead for a Dell 2650 (2cpu + 2G) with 5 146G drives for the VMWare ESX serverÂ (running three virtual systems, one windows, 2 linux)Â that this site is run on.
I also have a generic Dual P3-850 for my backup server.Â The Backup server has a half-terabyte (2x 250G) of storage for disk-disk-tape backup, (right now it’s disk-disk, because my library is offline until I can get some tapes bulk-erased.)
Ive noticed that most of the blog-sites are run off hosted wordpress sites, am I the only one nuts enough to takeÂ this particular project on himself?
