VuFind Local Catalog outage this morning

At 10:10AM this morning, the server running the SOLR index containing the VuFind Local catalogs stopped responding. A java process was consuming all CPU and the server was restarted to restore service. It looks like the service was offline for 12 minutes.

This has happened before and we think it has something to do with Java Garbage Collection (which happens at random intervals). The solution may be to schedule restarts of this server on a regular basis in the middle of the night.

VuFind Local Catalog Maintenance Tonight

On Sunday morning, we moved a rebuilt SOLR index of Local Catalogs to the VuFind server. That index has not updated the past two nights. After 10PM tonight, we will copy the index over again. This will require a reboot of the server which will take this service offline for a few minutes. Brandon Gant CARLI System Services

VuFind Problem 02/07

According to monitoring, the local catalog SOLR index for VuFind went offline at 7:16PM. This caused searches in all local catalogs to display a connection timeout error message ("Data not available for display"). That server has been rebooted and the system appears to be working again.

Downtime this Sunday Nov 18th from 6AM to 10AM

Between 6AM and 10AM this Sunday, November 18th, Production Voyager, Oracle, VuFind systems will go offline at various times. We are reconfiguring services to add four New Libraries (Morton, Richland, Southeastern, Southwestern) to our Voyager system. Many of the changes can be made during business hours, but we will need to restart/reboot/rebuild some services which requires downtime. We will also take this opportunity to do some additional hardware and software maintance. Brandon Gant CARLI System Services

Links from VuFind to Syndetics disabled, 10/30/12

Due to Hurricane Sandy, Syndetics servers have lost power. This means cover art, book reviews, and some tables of contents and summaries are temporarily unavailable from I-Share library catalogs. Service will be restored as soon as possible.
