Datacenter Crash (Server Unreachable for About 17 minutes)

Datacenter is trying to determine why the server when down.

All log files show no errors, including syslog, dmesg, etc and there are no core files.

Dashboard and stats show no unusual activity and light CPU load prior to crash.

I suspect a power issue in the datacenter. The datacenter team is looking into it.

Thank you for your patience and sorry for the short outage.

reboot   system boot  4.15.0-33-generi Mon Feb 24 07:00   still running
root     pts/0   Mon Feb 24 06:37 - crash  (00:22)

I'll post back if they come up with a reason on the datacenter end.

My searches of the file system and logs show no errors or internal server issues.

Brief Update from Datacenter support:

Update 1:

Thank you for your request. The servers are back up, we are still checking
what caused the issue. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.
Update 2:

Thank you for your request. The technicians are still checking what may have
caused it, but at the moment we do not have a feedback still.

Best regards
Looks like "servers" in the first update means a datacenter issue with either power or network connectivity.

Searched all log files again... there is nothing indicating a crash except the active ssh session "crash".

My "uptime bot" shows the following 17 minute down time window (GMT+7):

Final update from data center:

There has been a network outage in the room, it has been fixed and the servers brought back online.

The good news is that it was not a server error.

The bad news is that is was a data center network error.

Possible Attack on Global DNS Today or DNS Outage?

Is anyone else noticing that DNS is not working normally and globally?

I am seeing an unusual situation where DNS names in many domains are not resolving.

Ah .....

Turns out the datacenter is at fault again.

Thank you for your request.

We had a emergency maintenance.
Problem seems to be solved at the moment.

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience this is causing you.

Time to move to another provider?

emergency maintenance
If we can believe that we'll believe anything.

Anyway, what the h*ll does that mean??

An emergency is......e.g. a fire........maintenance!!......should be planned? How do you get a mix of those two???
What is "emergency maintenance"? Answers on a postcard please!!

The only excuse is a power failure and any decent datacenter should have a backup power strategy for that.

All the pro's on here know that systems should be designed clustered, high availability, etc (typical outage 20 seconds). Who are they trying to kid?
