Break in network connections at 2013-06-26 18:36 - 19:05

2013-06-26 18:36 to 19:05
29 min
Affected services: 
Network traffic to and from HIIT

Due to UPS failure our firewall lost its power and thus all traffic to and from HIIT was halted. Power supply was restored and traffic started to flow normally at 19:05.

Break in at 2013-06-14 11:30-11:40

2013-06-14 11:30 to 11:40
10 min
Affected services:,, and static sites on

Dropping of SAN LUN before removing of the device caused Debian GNU/Linux to bug and fail to remove the non-existent LUN. Problem was corrected by rebooting the server.

Update at 11:40 by Markus Nuorento: the break is over.

Breaks in testbed network connections at 2013-06-07 16:38-16:50

2013-06-07 16:38 to 16:50
3 min + 3 min
Affected services: 
Testbed traffic and traffic to network research group's testbed slice

Due to data center power arrangements both testbed router and network research group's router needed to be relocated. This caused a bit less than three (3) minute break to

  • testbed traffic
  • network research group's testbed slice's traffic

Power arrangements are now done, so further breaks shouldn't be neccessary.
