Slow April Day

Twenty miles to the East, fires burn.



But here at perl.org headquarters, it's a slow day.



Not that we're not busy as usual, but today our primary webserver was running veeeeeeeeery veeeery slooooooooowww..



I think it's just one of those days.



Today's issues:



  1. full partition makes database unhappy


  2. effective DDOS attack by people misusing the ntp pool.  (No - you are NOT supposed to set your time via HTTP using our service.)


  3. (when I thought it was all done) someone in Australia tried to scrape a million messages off of the cpan-testers archive.  All at once.  (Blocked!)


But everything's back to fast and normal now.....
