danga:~# uptime 14:05:15 up 286 days, 1:48, 21 users, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00 danga:~# halt
The ancient and dependable box, Marklar, long-time home of danga.com, fitzpat.com, bradfitz.com, updates.sixapart.com, cvs.livejornal.org, cvs.danga.com, and until earlier this year, also pics.livejournal.com and picpix.com, is now being halted and shipped to San Francisco.
I've been telling people it's turning out to be easier to move 150 boxes doing 1 function than 1 box doing 150 functions. Actually I guess neither was that hard, but both are boring.
So I've spent the past several days moving dozens of services off Marklar to other places, hence flaky mail/cvs/web/etc.
I'm getting it split into a bunch of small, easily-manageable Xen instances, each doing specific roles:
-- personal/family/friends websites
-- mail, webmail, anti-spam, imapd, etc
-- cvs/svn, and viewcvs
-- danga's websites (and updates.sixapart.com)
So much easier working with Xen than one monolithic box, especially being able to realloc memory and disk, resizing filesystems and such.
Taking the opportunity to switch from uw-imapd crap to Dovecot and Maildir.
Still a lot not set up, though, so my boredom continues for another few days, I'm sure......
