Last week Juha reported that TradeMe experienced a ten hour outage due to a failure of one of their core, load-balancers. This morning, TradeMe appears to be down again:
TradeMe have now posted the following message, doesn’t look too good.
11 January – Problems this morning
Trade Me’s auction site suffered a database failure at 3:50 am this morning, and was unavailable between 3:50 am and 8:05 am this morning.
All auctions closing between 3:50 am and 9 am have been extended by 24 hours. Eg. an auction scheduled to close at 6 am this morning will now close at 6 am tomorrow.
We also had some data problems between 11:55 pm last night and 3:50 am this morning. We are continuing to investigate this issue.
We sincerely apologise to all the Trade Me community for the disruption and inconvenience this outage has caused. We will post further updates here if other relevant information comes to hand.
