Earlier today, pear server was taken down to have it’s memory tested. This was a planned outage, but as it was scheduled at the last minute, we were unfortunately unable to give any advance notice. The server passed the memory test, so I have just upgraded to the kernel which will hopefully solve the stability issues. I will be monitoring the server over the next few hours to make sure there are no problems caused by the upgrade.
Hopefully this will be the end of the server crashes and unplanned downtime.
Thank you for bearing with us during these outages.
