<p>Today Disroot server had a bit of a tumble.
Due to little mistake, our main server became a total zombie. There was no way for us to bring it back to life other then driving 70km to the datacenter to manually restarting it. Server was down at 14:45 and back up at 16:05</p>
<p>We're very sorry for this situation and we will take extra measures to prevent that from happening in the future.</p>
<h3>From other bad news.</h3>
<p>Some of you already noticed, <strong>Circles</strong> app has been disabled on our server. This is due to a bug that caused huge performance issues. We hope that it will be resolved soon. Until then we need to keep it off in order to have our platform operational.</p>
<h3>And some good news.</h3>
<p>In comming week we will be commencing huge disroot infrastructure upgrade operation! We will deploy SSD dedicated database server, upgrade RAM and storage capacity. This will greatly improve performance and give disroot a needed buffer to grow. Of course this will mean some short (hopefully) downtimes during the week, about which we will of course inform you all. </p>

We are currently experiencing downtimes of the movim.eu XMPP server (and related services like Pubsub or Conferences) for several weeks now. This is having a serious impact on the availability of the platform (and, by extension, Movim related instances) for many of our users. We are deeply sorry about that.
The exact reason of those downtimes is not known for now (it seems to be related to the Pubsub module of the server). The movim.eu XMPP services are running on top of the Metronome XMPP server that is not maintained anymore since 2016.
We are currently working closely with the ejabberd XMPP server team to migrate the whole XMPP infrastructure in the upcoming weeks to this new server. This migration will also bring more stable and new features (especially regarding the Pubsub part) to the existing platform.
