This is our system status page. We will report any problems or upcoming maintenance issues here.
As members may know, our servers suffered an outage yesterday affecting all services. This was the result of a DDOS (distributed denial of service) attack which is currently still under investigation.
We suffered a repeat of yesterday's attack between 17:13 and 18:23. However, the target of the attack has now been located and isolated, thus enabling all services to run normally from now on.
3rd January 2016 20:58 - Hardware failure
A hardware failure is currently affecting the webserver used to host the www.rayment.info domain. Engineers are working on the problem and expect to resolve it shortly.
The fault has been cleared and the server is now running normally.
28th July 2010 21:39 - Page display problems
The Society is dealing with a fault that is preventing the display of all of the static pages hosted on the rayment.ca webserver in Canada. This fault does not affect the search facilities, all of which are still working normally. We are currently doing all that we can to restore normal working but, due to circumstances beyond our control, the fault may well take a considerable time to clear. A further announcement will be made as soon as possible.
All of the Birth, Marriage and Death certificate pages have now been moved from the failed Canadian server to a working UK server and work has now started on moving the Census images.
All of the British Census images have now been moved to a working UK server and plans are now being made to start moving the remaining records from the failed server.
Thanks to Bill Rayment, the Canadian Server is now back up and access has been fully restored to all pages of the website.
14th March 2009 08:52 - Notice of temporary interuption to service
The storage system on the www.rayment.info website hosting server is due to be upgraded this afternoon and the downtime is expected to be around 20 minutes. The hosting company is apologising in advance for this outage, but expects that the upgrade will make a noticeable difference to server performance.
Server65 is being upgraded now and should be back up in 20 minutes or so.
Server65 is now back up. The hosting company has apologized for the extra time involved, explaining that it was down for longer than expected due to a hitch in moving the data to the new drives.
14th July 2008 08:00 - Search Engine software improvements
All of the Society's search facilities will be liable to short periods of interuption throughout the whole of this week. This is due to scheduled software modifications required to enhance the way in which search results are presented.
Work has now been completed and so there should be no further interuptions.
3rd Dec 2007 08:26 - Census image display problem
A problem with viewing some of the census page images has been reported and is currently under investigation.
This problem was traced to a server in Canada and has now been resolved.
