News » 26.09.2008 - Project Management System Out of Service

For quite some months now our Redmine installation has been causing problems. More precisely, it was leaking memory pretty bad, eventually leading the whole server to death. This problem was circumvented by having the service restarted every night. Unfortunatelly in the past days the problems became much more severe, with process lockups and even greater memory leaks. None of the attempts to fix the situation (software updates, switch from mongrel to passenger, configuration tweaks and so on) were successful. So I was forced to shut down Redmine completely last night. I expect a solution to this on Sunday, at the earliest. Of course if the Redmine developers can fix the problem(s), we will continue to use that software. Otherwise I'll have to migrate everything to another solution. Sorry for the disruption. Stay tuned.
