News: Cloud1 instance swap device issues

Published: 12/27/2015 Back

Between 3:46AM and 5AM we noticed issues with some cloud server swap space. During this timeframe, we either rebooted any servers that were showing a kernel panic or remounted swap via 'swapoff -a; swapon -a' to remedy the issue. The small number of machines that kernel panicked were those that were already running low or out of physical RAM.


If you are running an instance with less than 512MB RAM and your server was rebooted, please contact us and schedule a RAM upgrade to enhance performance without relying on disk for swapping memory when memory is exhausted.
