nugget :: 24-May-2000 20:43 (Wednesday) ::

Another quick update, and a reiteration...

We're still not entirely sure which piece of hardware is causing the
problems on statsbox.  Today we're experimenting with the cpus and simms
to try to determine if one of them is faulty.  Onboard scsi adapter on
the asus p2b-ds is also a suspect at this point.

Also, just to clarify: the keyserver network is _completely_ unaffected
by statsbox being down.  We're still processing keys and we're still able
to detect the winning key if a client finds it.  When statsbox is brought
back online, we'll have no trouble "catching up" with the logs that are
being generated by the keymaster right now.

More details as we know more.  Again, sorry for the delays.  I'm pretty
certain that this misadventure is going to drive us into buying a name-brand
server to house the data with a support contract.  It's just too awkward
trying to diagnose hardware problems when we've only got one person (a
very busy person) is local to the machine.
