Linode have identified and developed a number of critical stability and performance improvements for their infrastructure. These include fixes for a potential crash, general performance tweaks, and enhancements to networking throughput. After implementing, testing, deploying, and gaining confidence in these changes, they are now ready to roll updates out to the remaining fleet. This is expected to significantly decrease the amount of unplanned maintenance.
To complete this, Linode will be performing reboots 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.
During the actual maintenance window, your Linode will be cleanly shut down and will be unavailable while we perform the updates. To minimize impact, maintenance will be limited to each respective datacenter’s local off-hours time. A 2-hour window is allocated, however the actual downtime should be around 45-60 minutes. 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.
