I like to first state that this is not something I believe to have happen with Iworx, i just want others opinions as to wether my hosting companies explaintion of why my server was offline makes sense.
I couldn’t get to my server earlier today, no email, web, or even ssh. When I contacted support they said it was b/c my “network service on the OS seemed to have suddenly failed” and a “service network restart”.
When I was able to get back in I noticed my uptime was about 3 mins so I asked why? I was told it was b/c of something with the keyboard locking up and needed to be rebooted.
Now here is my question that goes with the subject line. Besides the uptime I saw on NodeWorx showing 3 mins I also noticed the graphs didn’t work from the time I noticed the server being out and its rebooting. I dont believe a “Network Service” problem would totally stop Iworx graphs from working (CPU, Mem, all of them).
Am I wrong or right on that one? I just have this nag’n assumption (and thats all it is right now) that my box was powered down by a failed UPS or something and this was just an excuse.
Thanks for reading!
This is the only thing I found in the Iworx log:
Jan 24 10:06:07 iworx [debug] lock barfing: /home/interworx/etc/remote-access.ini
Jan 24 10:06:07 iworx [debug] backing up: /home/interworx/etc/remote-access.ini
Jan 24 10:06:07 iworx [debug] orig already exists: /home/interworx/etc/.remote-access.ini.orig
Jan 24 10:06:07 iworx [debug] lock barf success: /home/interworx/etc/remote-access.ini
After that last command the next one is the startup.
The iworx error log should be in .1 file, but that file is empty.
