Maintenance Outage




     We are going to take ultra1 down around 11pm Pacific time tonight in order
to increase system RAM from 640MB to 1GB on this machine in order to stop
memory starvation system crashes and improve performance.

     This machine is the file server for all user files, home directories, mail
spools, ftp directories, etc, and thus all services which depend upon these
things will be unavailable for approximately 1/2 hour while this upgrade is
performed. 

     It should improve future availability by reducing or hopefully eliminating
memory starvation crashes, and it will improve performance by allowing more
files to be served from cache rather than requiring hard disk accesses.
