iSCSI faulty?

Have any of you noticed on a single thread a RPS has a better connection speed than a Kimsufi/OVH Dedicated Server?

I am on Virgin Media, 50Mbps and the RPS speed is about 400kbps more, even though latency/pings seem to be the same for both said servers.

I have not done a traceroute, and I can't be arsed pasting results from wget/ping results - I am simply asking if anyone has experienced the same problems as me?

I just run litespeed (webserver) and a mailserver.

What are you running on your RPS, the use of some applications need to consider the following:

I must say, I'm very happy with RPS on the whole. It's just that you sometimes get occasions where a few servers have these problems communicating with the drive and it's ages before it gets fixed.

Can't complain at a tenner a month, but I wouldn't want to pay for the setup now and find that one doesn't work - at least before you could order a new one, migrate everything across and ditch the faulty one. I think that's why there was such a high turnover of servers before.

Ditch RPS. It's never going to be perfect.

I had the similar issues during the early days of RPS.

Yeah, I've been doing that - but I've found the reinstall option to be a temporary fix, the fault happens again after a day or so.

BELLonline; the support won't ever tell you that its their fault. Your best bet is to reinstall the entire machine, just like i had to do. I was able to get my website back up sooner than the support answered my question/ticket, which they still havent.

ok, I tried to open a ticket but when I submitted it, the page hung for about 15 mins and now when I try to open a ticket it gives a 500 error. Hopefully someone from OVH will see this.

Hi,

I've got a few servers that keep changing to a read only file system. I think there's something wrong with the iSCSI disc - rescue mode doesn't seem to show any errors.

Servers constantly go into a readonly filesystem, reboots fail for a few hours (only booting into rescue mode), eventually works if lucky. Reinstalling doesn't seem to help, it only acts as a temporary fix.

This is not just me http://forum.ovh.co.uk/showthread.php?t=3974

Is there any estimate as to how long it will take for this to be fixed? It's been going on for a couple of weeks now.

I've just opened another ticket about this (I had opened one last week). If we all keep contacting them about the problem then it might get fixed.

Hey guys,

I've seem to run into some trouble with my RPS, once again. This time it seems iscsid is failing, heres the log from messages.

Apr 13 19:23:12 r24036 iscsid: Kernel reported iSCSI connection 1:0 error (1011) state (3)
Apr 13 19:24:09 r24036 iscsid: connection1:0 is operational after recovery (2 attempts)
Apr 13 19:27:35 r24036 kernel: connection1:0: ping timeout of 5 secs expired, recv timeout 5, last rx$
Apr 13 19:27:35 r24036 kernel: connection1:0: detected conn error (1011)
What can I do to fix this as my server wont boot in normal HD mode so SSH doesn't work. Only on rescue.
