Scheduled Maintenance
A maintenance window has been scheduled for the Linode Manager and API on October 18th from 09:00 AM - 11:00 AM EDT (13:00 - 15:00 UTC). We expect this maintenance to take approximately 2 hours. During this maintenance, running Linodes will not be impacted but customers will not be able to perform tasks such as creating, removing, booting, or shutting down Linodes, or other tasks involving the Linode Manager or Linode API.

Our Support team will be available on our dedicated line at 855-454-6633 (Intl: +1 609-380-7100) for general questions, but will not be able to assist with issues related to the Linode Manager or API during this maintenance.

Edge Router Upgrade - B Side - Tokyo 2 Datacenter Oct 23, 23:00 - Oct 24, 03:00 UTC
On Monday, October 23, at 23:00 UTC (Tuesday, October 24, 08:00 Tokyo local time), our engineers will be performing an edge router upgrade in our Tokyo 2 datacenter. We will be working exclusively on the "B" side of the network, and do not expect any downtime during this maintenance as we have full router redundancy. However, brief periods of packet loss or increased latency may be observed at times. We expect this maintenance to take 4 hours.

Resolved - We have successfully completed this maintenance.
Oct 12, 12:44 UTC
Investigating - Linode has received several Xen Security Advisories (XSAs) that requires us to perform updates to our legacy Xen host servers. In order to apply the updates, hosts and the Linodes running on them must be rebooted. The XSAs will be publicly released by the Xen project team on October 12th. We must complete this maintenance before then.

These security advisories only affect legacy Xen Linodes. KVM Linodes are not affected and do not require a reboot. Any customer that upgrades to KVM prior to the maintenance can avoid it entirely. You can use the “Upgrade to KVM” link in your Linode’s dashboard to move to KVM. More KVM upgrading information can be found here:

https://www.linode.com/docs/platform/kvm-reference

These updates are required to protect the security and safe operations of not only our infrastructure but yours as well. We understand that a disruption with such limited notice is inconvenient, and we hope you understand that we have no control over the disclosure date of this XSA. As such, we must adhere to this strict timeline to ensure the security of both our customers and platform. We strongly recommend you read through our Reboot guide, which will help you prepare your Linode for these reboots. The Reboot guide is available here:

https://www.linode.com/docs/uptime/reboot-survival-guide

Each Linode's maintenance window will be communicated to you via email and will also be visible within the Linode Manager. Unfortunately, unless you’re able to upgrade to KVM, due to the logistical demands of this effort your assigned maintenance windows are not changeable and the host reboots are mandatory. KVM is currently not available in Tokyo 1, which means Linodes in Tokyo will have to undergo maintenance on-schedule.

During the maintenance window, Linode instances will be cleanly shut down while we perform the updates. Your Linode will be inaccessible during this time. A two-hour window is allocated, however, the actual downtime should be much less. After the maintenance, each Linode will then be returned to its last state (running or powered off).

Stay tuned for more information.

Oct 3, 23:55 UTC
Monitoring - After many hours of troubleshooting with Cisco, it appears we have hit hardware and software failures on both internet facing edge routers simultaneously. The "A" side router had a module degrade silently, meaning that the module did not fully fail and caused strange forwarding behavior without notifying the operating system of the failure. Once the "A" side router was reloaded, the module failure became apparent during the boot process. Both redundant routers also experienced the same undocumented forwarding table bug that caused the blackholing of some customer traffic. At this time we have been able to normalize connectivity. A separate maintenance will be required to fully resolve this incident, at which point a full post mortem will be made available.
Oct 2, 03:32 UTC
Update - Our Network Operations team is continuing to work with Cisco on a resolution to these issues. We'll continue to provide updates as the situation develops.
Oct 2, 02:16 UTC
Update - Our engineers are still troubleshooting with Cisco. Cisco believes a software bug is causing the reachability problems we are seeing. A workaround is currently being developed. More updates to follow.
Oct 2, 01:01 UTC
Update - Both of our Frankfurt internet edge routers are experiencing issues with their forwarding tables. This is causing sporadic blackholing of customer traffic. Our engineers have reached out to the router vendor and are engaged with their engineering team. More updates will be provided as information become available.

Oct 3, 22:00 UTC
Scheduled - On Wednesday, October 4th, 2017 at approximately 00:00 CEST, Frankfurt local time, Linode will be conducting an emergency non-service affecting maintenance on both internet edge routers located in our Frankfurt data center. During this maintenance, engineers will be upgrading the software on each router to rectify a Cisco bug that caused packet loss and/or reachability issues for some customer traffic earlier in the week. Due to the redundant configuration of the routers, we do not anticipate any impact to customer traffic. The maximum duration for this maintenance is 2 hours.
