Mozilla Scheduled Maintenance – 03/07/2011, 6pm PST (03/08/2011, 0100 UTC)

We will have an off-schedule maintenance window tomorrow night from 6:00pm to 9:00pm PST. The following changes will take place:

  • 6:00pm PST (0100 UTC) Phoenix Firewall upgrades. We’ll be picking up vendor-recommended software upgrades. The nature of this upgrade requires redundancy to be disabled and as such, all sites will experience a 10-15 second outage. While the actual user-facing outage is less than a minute, the entire window will be 2 hours.

    The following services will be impacted during this upgrade:

    • Firefox Sync
    • Socorro (crash-stats.mozilla.com & crash-reports.mozilla.com)
    • input.mozilla.com
    • pulse.mozilla.org
    • firefoxlive.mozilla.org
    • demos.mozilla.org
    • www.mozillademos.org
    • www.drumbeat.org

Please let me know if you have any reason why we should not proceed with this planned maintenance. As always, we aim to keep downtime to as little as possible, but unexpected complications can arise causing longer downtime periods than expected. All systems should be operational by the end of the maintenance window.

Feel free to comment directly if you see issues past the planned downtime.
