NOTE:

On Region Restarts:

Regions will be restarted if they have been running for more than 14 days on Tuesday (Main Channel) and Wednesday (RCs) regardless of whether or not new code is being deployed, for the general health and well being of the Simulators.  Nothing beats turning it off and then on again … once in a while.

As always, please plan events around these maintenance windows.  However, if you are hosting an event on Tuesday or Wednesday when we’re not deploying new code, you can restart your region ahead of time to avoid interruption.

Do they know that regions get maintenance restarts twice sometimes?  The second one can be anywhere from 1 to 3 hours after the first one.  It's very strange, I think it only started happening at the beginning of the year.  Would it help to post region names here?

I just had that too. Sometimes it's because something horrible that hadn't been spotted in beta shows up, and they decide to roll back to the previous version. This time, though, the server version showing is the one that's been posted above.

Meanwhile, another region I use has been offline for over an hour.

ETA: Well this is unusual: a third restart, and this one only took a couple of minutes. Same new server version. The other region remains offline after nearly two hours.

I just had a third restart as well.  The first was before 4 AM, the second was before 5:40 AM, and the third was before 6:45 AM SLT.

My experience was similar but time involved a little different. First came the Sim Version and Host change. Subsequent restarts were Sim Host change only.

The long-offline region came back after nearly two and a half hours (I did put in a support ticket, but I don't suppose anyone saw it until later) and I've not had any more restarts in either region.

Ah, I now see from the SL status page that longer than normal downtimes were to be expected.

I guess it's my fault for having just read this thread and the status page RSS and not the status page itself as well.
