INITIAL POST

We are tracking an issue where IPv6 networking is performing slowly for external internet facing requests.

This can also affect the speeds of IPv4 networking if IPv6 is the preferred route.

We are currently working with our data center support staff to pin down the issue. We have validated the issue does not present itself within switching or virtualization layer.

If you are affected by this issue, please review the following workarounds:

- Disable IPv6. If you do not rely on IPv6, you can disable the protocol until the issue is resolved.
- Prefer IPv4 over IPv6. Edit your gia.conf file in Linux appropriately to accomplish this. In Windows, please view this article for information on how to edit the prefix policies.

As always, please create a ticket if you require any assistance or have any questions. We will keep this issue updated as more information becomes available.

Virtualization Cluster API Issues (Resolved) Critical

  • 02/03/2017 10:00 - 02/03/2017 12:00
  • Last Updated 02/03/2017 16:35

We had an issue with our virtualization API services which resulted in reboots of our virtualization cluster. After many attempts to resolve the issue using methods which would not impact running VPS, we had no choice but to perform a reboot to resolve the issue.

We believe we have found the underlying issue which caused the instability. 

It appears a new NFS server which was attached to the cluster to host ISOs, LXC templates, and backups has been unstable during backup operations. This appears to be due to high I/O. The system will disconnect intermittently which causes issues with VPS with connected ISO media. This, in turn, will begin to affect the stability of cluster/management services, including API operations.

We will be replacing this NFS system as well as making other configuration changes which should alleviate the issue.

We apologize for the downtime and appreciate your patience as we work through this issue.

Thank you so much for your continued support. Please do not hesitate to email support@launchvps.com if you have any questions.

An audit will run after the node reboot to be sure all VPS are in a powered-on state.

Unexpected Node Reboot (Resolved) High

The virtualization node, PHL1-P1-NA-SRV001, experienced an unexpected reboot earlier this afternoon. The reboot appears to be linked to third party software which LAUNCH VPS uses to manage kernel updates. The software has functioned very well over time, but appears to have encountered a fault.

Unfortunately, it appears that directly after this software performed a live update, the virtualization node rebooted which is not the expected behavior. The node returned online without further issue. The 3rd party software is now functioning as it should. All VPS which were hosted on this node also experienced a reboot. LAUNCH VPS verified that all virtual servers returned to a powered-on state and there were no errors within the virtualization management software. A spot check was also performed to ensure our customer's VPS appeared to be functioning as they should.

LAUNCH VPS will investigate this issue further. We will also report this issue to the software vendor and ensure their team joins on the investigation.

We sincerely apologize for this inconvenient service interruption. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us by creating a support ticket in the LAUNCH VPS control panel.

Thank you for hosting with LAUNCH VPS.
