This is a good day.
This night we had a routing problem in the backbone - which
meant that the servers I am working with were not reachable.
Which meant that I got alerted....
Well - because it was a routing problem, I haven't had much
to do except of traceroutes.
After one hour that problem was fixed.
Then I had to make measurements how fast our black-box-NFS-Storage can
be, mounted via NFS to a Solaris box. Its interesting; if
the datamover is really idle you can find >8000 directories
with "find /mount/point" within 10 seconds. But you have a
datamover who is working this drops down very far....
And I just got the recent news: our company changed the
mobile provider. Three days ago. Now everyone who has a
company mobile has to switch to the new provider (now!), use
the new number, copy all his numbers in the memory to the
new card, publish the new card......
I like chaos, especially when I am not involved (my mobile
is a private one).
And btw: the Apocalyptica Concert in Karlsruhe next week is
sold out. Too bad.
