Annarchy down again :(

Yet again Annarchy suffered some evil failure requiring a hard reboot. The box really needs more memory. Keith has indicated there is budget so I guess when there’s some spare time we should buy and install it. 16GB more would make it very happy. Most the issues come down to disk io. When the ram gets low the box starts thrashing and sadly the disks just can’t keep up with the load.

To combat this I’ve built a failsafe script will stop services when the load gets too high – restarts them when the load drops again, just waiting on another Wrangler to confirm it’s ok before it goes live.
