01.10.2015 - ONID Shell Server Outage Saturday January 10th 9:45am - 10:15am

The ONID shell server (shell.onid.oregonstate.edu) was not accepting new SSH connections between 9:45am and 10:15am on Saturday January 10th. The outage was caused by an error while adding new network ranges to the block list. The block list is used to prevent connections from malicious network addresses that are trying to guess passwords for ONID users.

12.15.2014 - ONID Outage Monday December 15th 11:20am - noon

An internal MySQL database server hung, causing the following ONID services to be unavailable from 11:20am to noon:

  • ONID Webmail (https://webmail.oregonstate.edu)
  • MyONID website (ONID Password changes, ONID Sign-Up)
  • ONID SSO (the old SSO system, not CAS)
  • Cacti graphs (http://cacti.onid.oregonstate.edu)

An internal MySQL database service was restarted to fix an apparent memory leak, and the restart took much longer than anticipated. Unfortunately, some memory was not recovered so the server must be rebooted. The reboot will be scheduled for a future date.
