Here is just a brief update on the status of Toolforge and CloudVPS by today
2019-02-16, along with some guess-estimations and what to expect in following
days. Keeping track of all the events we had this week may be complex, because
they were several of them, and heavily intermixed.
* CloudVPS suffered severe hardware issues this week . We solved most of the
problems and added spare hardware  because our server capacity was really
lowered. This service should be mostly stable right now.
* Toolsdb (tools.db.svc.eqiad.wmflabs) is currently overloaded and suffering
from hardware errors. We are already working on a replacement for this service
. Services depending on this database aren't working properly (like PAWS) and
Toolforge tools that use it are also affected.
An honest estimation is that services (specially Toolsdb) we won't be fully
recovered until at least next Tuesday (2019-02-26).
Our current plans involve replacing the Toolsdb hardware with virtual machines
inside CloudVPS . We are trying to be extra cautious to prevent data loss and
other problems usually associated with doing things in a rush.
Finally, I would like to mention that we are all well aware of the importance of
these services for the community and we are doing our best to get things fixed.
Thanks for your understanding and patience.
