ManyRoads- apology!

I apologize for the fact that ManyRoads was down this morning (18 August 2010) from about 0200 until 0900 Mountain Daylight Time.

Late last night, we experienced a resource usage problem and exceeded allowable usage limits on our server. A software script (cron) created too many ‘background processes’, ran wild, and ate up a lot of systems resources. The bottom line is, we both exceeded CPU user limits and our disk space utilization/ growth moved into ‘out of bounds’ conditions. (The problem with having lots of things going on…)

Hopefully things are now back in order with our temporary patch. I hope to have a more permanent solution operational soon.
