The saturn server has gone off line as of 8:36 PM CDT we are currently investigating the problem. We believe it may be related to the file system of the home directory going read only. We will update this once we have more information.

We're going to be running a fsck on the /home partition as we are unable to get the partition to not go read only. This unfortunately means the machine may be down for up to an hour. Nothing we can do to solve this unfortunately as we assume something with one of the drives caused the issue but it's not something we can correct without running a fsck. This is one of the cases where the down time is necessary for the health of the system and the data the machine has.

We are also continuing to investigate the raid itself.

The process of verifying the integrity of the raid array is still ongoing. Unfortunately it is causing some slowness on the server which we unfortunately cannot correct. This is a necessary step in maintaining the integrity of the data on the server.

Should be finished and everything is running at full speed again. Although for the most part today things have been very fast once it got through the initial portion. We've now started up any tasks that were stopped for the time being (stats runs and backups)
