SA1.4 Central tools

  • On Saturday from 4am to 10.30 am (CET) the * domain was unreachable. That caused - among other issues - a GOCDB outage. This should not have been caused problems directly to service monitoring, based on my information.

  • New InterNGI usage functionality released on Accounting Portal (
  • Central operational tools outages
    • the * domain was unreachable on Saturday 15th from 4am to 10.30 am (CET)
    • GGUS was unreachable on Monday 17th from 10:40 to 17:20 (CET) due to network outage: The network failure yesterday (Monday, 17.12.2012) was caused by two independent, almost simultaneously occurring faults in the network of the KIT. Due to the interaction this resulted in a very unclear picture about the real reasons. On North Campus, there was a hardware failure in one of the core backbone router, the redundant hardware part rebooted completely

unexpected and without any event without any configuration. On South Campus, there was another fault that was caused by the network in a building. Because of the large impact the localization of the cause was very difficult. The causing network components in the wiring closets have been replaced in the afternoon of Dec 17th.

    • GOCDB and APEL were unreachable on Tuesday 18th from 07:50 to 11:00 (CET) due to network outage (
