Filer (Storage Device) Issues: Monday August 25th, 10:00am. http://computing.yorku.ca/2014/08/filer-storage-device-issues-monday-august-25th-1000am/ http://computing.yorku.ca/2014/08/filer-storage-device-issues-monday-august-25th-1000am/#comments Mon, 25 Aug 2014 14:28:13 +0000 http://computing.yorku.ca/?p=12096 **** PLEASE DISTRIBUTE WIDELY ****

One of the filers (large storage device) is currently not providing
service.  The load on the other filer is causing degraded service on
several applications - central email, central web, MOODLE, some databases
which will affect SIS, FAS service, etc..

We will update when there is more information.
