For those who have backups hosted on backup4, you will have today
received some alerts like this:
[PROBLEM] backup age ruminant on backup4.bitfolk.com
(or it may have said WARNING instead of CRITICAL)
This was caused by me doing some work on that host that reset
timestamps on the backup directories leading to false positive
alerts, until the next backup run.
The work is finished now so by now you should have received a
corresponding "OK" recovery notification. If you did not then
there is an actual problem.
You can check at:
as all customers with backups do have monitoring set up.
Apologies for the confusion; I will try to remember to set such
monitoring into downtime mode in future.
