Title: Recovered and back Online !!
Post by ProgMaster on 11th May, 2008 at 8:19pm
All,

Well, having now returned from holiday, I'm delighted to say that everything here at S.A. is now back to normal.

Although SAM automatically recovered from the two power-cuts whilst I was away, the link between SAM and the website failed, so the 'currently playing' information was unavailable. Unfortunately, the automatic recovery for this kind of problem didn't kick-in as expected.

Also, the main 'issue' whilst I was away was that our Streaming Host acquired a new block of IP addresses which S.A. was moved onto. Essentially, SAM was attempting to connect to a 'dead' IP address ...

From our Streaming Host :-


As part of our ongoing expansion we have requisitioned a new block of IP addresses from ARIN. To fulfill their requirements, we must renumber into this new block,
which means that we will have to assign new addresses to our european servers;

We will also provide a new BGP bandwidth mix for this server and it will be directly connected through multiple direct Peerings and Tier1 optical fiber Backbone providers: NTT-Telia-Level3-Interoute-Tiscalinet-TeleGlobe-TDC

This will mean a better performance for all your listeners.



Anyway, sincere apologies for this outage. Many thanks for bearing with me and enjoying the forum whilst the stream was down.

Continue to enjoy ...

Your streaming host certainly has a nice line in gobbledygook!

lol !! ;D

Standard stuff when it comes to companies selling you servers, really. ;)


"As part of our ongoing expansion we have requisitioned a new block of IP addresses from ARIN. To fulfill their requirements, we must renumber into this new block,  
which means that we will have to assign new addresses to our european servers;

"We've run-out of IP addresses and have had to buy some more. So, we've had to change your's."


"We will also provide a new BGP bandwidth mix for this server and it will be directly connected through multiple direct Peerings and Tier1 optical fiber Backbone providers: NTT-Telia-Level3-Interoute-Tiscalinet-TeleGlobe-TDC "

"The bandwidth of the server that you connect to is automatically monitored using 'Border Gateway Protocol' - this means all of the Internet Radio Staions that use us get a fair crack of the 'Bandwidth Whip'. Also, our servers connect directly to the companies that run and hold the Internet together - Globally (the 'Internet Backbone', if you will) and not using some rubbish telephone type cable either but lots of fancy ones that involve lasers and things."


"This will mean a better performance for all your listeners."

This is actually straight-forward and in my opinion, true. The guys at Viastreaming really are first class, otherwise I wouldn't use them. ;)

Enjoy.

Nice translation there Darran!

I like the "...that involve lasers and things"
