Sports Tracker is currently offline due to technical problems. It was discovered during the weekend that some of our filesystems started behaving strangely and the root cause was identified to be our database filesystem that exceeded capacity for some specific database files. This made isolation of the problem complicated, since we did not have any immediately visible problems with our infrastructure. This caused our master database to malfunction and finally took down the service.
What does this mean? For you, the end user, this is not anything to worry about. We have a separate storage that will be used to update database for any changes that happened after the malfunction. Also, we have taken steps to prevent such situation happening again.
Finally, why does it take so long? We have multiple terabytes of data that we need to move around networks. Rather than trying to speed things up taking risks, we’re carefully evaluating consistency of the data in order to prevent any data loss. We’re currently working 24/7 to ensure getting the service up and running as soon as possible. Please follow this blog, our Twitter and Facebook for the latest info.
We’re sorry for the inconvenience and frustration this causes. We’d like to remind you that you can continue to track your workouts during this break, they will be synced automatically once the service is back online.
