in 2003 (http://archives.lists.indymedia.org/imc-tech/2003-March/
010834.html) Calyx Donated a very nice Server to the Indymedia
Network. The Box is running radio.indymedia.org Website and a Icecast
Server. Both Services need some Bandwidth and we are very thankful
for that Donation. The Site is used by many Free and Alternative
Radios around the World and we would not be able to Host such a
Service without your Help.
Around january 2004 Micah from the U.S. Visited Calyx in Amsterdam
and made some Kernel Updates and fixed a Broken HD in the RAID.
In the last month we had many Downtimes of the Box, like cold Reboots
and Network outages. We where not be able to find the real source of
that Problem due the massive downtimes.
For Example: In the last week we was not even able to trace into the
calyx network, the trace stopped at zwartepiet.ams.calyx.nl
Since we was not able to have closer look into the System we would
like to know if Berkman was affected by planed maintains Work at
Calyx - so we can exclude that as a source for the Box Downtime.
It would also be very Helpful if you could please add berkman-
sysadmin at lists.indymedia.org to the List for Maintain Notifications.
This is a Public Mailing List, if that is a Problem please let us know.
If you see any reason (high bandwidth usage) for a Downtime on your
site, please let us know.
At the moment the box is down again. We hope one of the Techs around
the World is awake and has some time to have a closer look on the
Logs as soon as the Box is back. We would like to confirm that
physical access to the Box is needed. We also got a Tech Contact
(bonzai) in Amsterdam who would be able to have a look on Berkman if
he gets access to the Colo.
Many Thanks! We hope that we can re-establish some technical Contacts
again - would help allot.
