Alex Mandel tried to reboot the machine, but it was stuck in a password prompt
when trying to do the fsck and we couldn't get to the console - and therefore
needed help from osuosl. Therefore the outage took about 5h (yesterday 19h-0h
Apparently the plugin site and planet didn't come up cleanly after that and
that went unnoticed - at least yours is the first complaint I've seen.
I added a module to munin that monitors the status and memory usage of redmine.
And script that kills heavy redmine processes. So hopefully redmine won't take
the server down again.
