Dear ProHosterz Users,
During the night of 30.06.2012 to 01.07.2012 our internal monitoring systems registered an increase in the level of IT power usage by approximately one megawatt.
The reason for this huge surge is the additional switched leap second which can lead to permanent CPU load on Linux servers.
According to heise.de, various Linux distributions are affected by this. Further information can be found at: http://www.h-online.com/open/news/item/Leap-second-Linux-can-freeze-1629805.html
Currently due to this there is an load condition on some of our nodes, tech staff is closely monitoring the server and make require a reboot of certain nodes. So there is no need to raise a ticket for increase in server load in this regards.
We will keep you updated....
