Incident closed...

Da Button Factory has been down for ~1 hour. Sorry.

Once again, it's because of a traffic peak, and the server didn't handle it properly.

Actually, I took a little time to investigate before to restart DaBuFa. The main problem is that the server OS let the application use ALL the memory and the CPU power. I put some limits in /etc/security/limits.conf (yes, DaBuFa is powered by Linux :-)) that should prevent these kind of extreme case from happening again.

Sorry for the inconvenience!


  1. @chad: yes, Linux of course, one of the few decent operating system out there :-)

    More precisely, DaBuFa is powered by Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.
