Scheduled Maintenance for upstream Linux kernel bug
Scheduled for Monday September 30, 2019

Sep 30, 17:35 UTC
Identified - Recently, we identified a commit to the upstream Linux kernel[1] as the cause of an increase in emergency maintenance on our platform. After implementing, testing, deploying, and gaining confidence in a fix, we are now ready to roll this update out to the remainder of our fleet. We're confident this will resolve the bug and ultimately lessen the amount of unplanned maintenance for your Linodes as a result of this specific issue.

To complete this, we will be performing maintenance on a subset of Linode’s host machines. This maintenance will update the underlying infrastructure that Linodes reside on and will not affect the data stored within them.

If you are on an affected host, your maintenance window will be communicated to you via a Support ticket within the next few days. You can prepare your Linode for this maintenance by following our Reboot Survival Guide[2].

During the actual maintenance window, your Linode will be cleanly shut down and will be unavailable while we perform the updates. A two-hour window is allocated, however the actual downtime should be much less. After the maintenance has concluded, each Linode will be returned to its last state (running or powered off).

This status page will be updated once maintenance is complete.

Resolved - DNS resolution in our Dallas and Atlanta data centers has remained stable, and we're confident this matter has been resolved. If you are still experiencing additional issues, please contact our Customer Support Team for assistance.

Sep 5, 16:24 UTC
Monitoring - We are aware of a brief interruption to some services in our Dallas and Atlanta data centers due to a failure with our DNS resolvers. The issue caused name resolution timeouts for our API, the Linode Manager, our Login services, and the impacted data centers. During this time, customers may have also noticed degraded performance when trying to use the Linode Manager and our API. We have taken action to correct the root issue and services are running normally. We will be monitoring this situation to ensure connectivity remains stable.
