Friday, September 24, 2010 (Without WWW) Is Still Down

As yesterday Facebook went down for near about two and a half hours. And they detailed in a Notes about the down and reasons behind it.

But as from the time Facebook went down if you have gone through (without applying WWW in their domain) or there shorten URL service both where down.

Have you noticed the site going down (without applying WWW in their domain)?

Update1: (without applying WWW in their domain) is not down continually, its coming and going (not stable).

Update2 (4:45 PM IST): It's been two and half hours we have posted this and till now (without applying WWW in their domain) is down
Error: This webpage is not available.

Update3 (6:00 PM IST): Now It seems its working fine. If you got any further information we will keep it update.

Facebook's worst outage in over four years

As today Facebook went down for 2 and a half hours. So here what Facebook said about the outage.

Early today Facebook was down or unreachable for many of you for approximately 2.5 hours. This is the worst outage we’ve had in over four years, and we wanted to first of all apologize for it. We also wanted to provide much more technical detail on what happened and share one big lesson learned.

The key flaw that caused this outage to be so severe was an unfortunate handling of an error condition. An automated system for verifying configuration values ended up causing much more damage than it fixed.

The intent of the automated system is to check for configuration values that are invalid in the cache and replace them with updated values from the persistent store. This works well for a transient problem with the cache, but it doesn’t work when the persistent store is invalid.

Today we made a change to the persistent copy of a configuration value that was interpreted as invalid. This meant that every single client saw the invalid value and attempted to fix it. Because the fix involves making a query to a cluster of databases, that cluster was quickly overwhelmed by hundreds of thousands of queries a second.

To make matters worse, every time a client got an error attempting to query one of the databases it interpreted it as an invalid value, and deleted the corresponding cache key. This meant that even after the original problem had been fixed, the stream of queries continued. As long as the databases failed to service some of the requests, they were causing even more requests to themselves. We had entered a feedback loop that didn’t allow the databases to recover.

The way to stop the feedback cycle was quite painful - we had to stop all traffic to this database cluster, which meant turning off the site. Once the databases had recovered and the root cause had been fixed, we slowly allowed more people back onto the site.

This got the site back up and running today, and for now we’ve turned off the system that attempts to correct configuration values. We’re exploring new designs for this configuration system following design patterns of other systems at Facebook that deal more gracefully with feedback loops and transient spikes.

We apologize again for the site outage, and we want you to know that we take the performance and reliability of Facebook very seriously.

Facebook Seriously Needs Better Employees

Facebook need some serious batter developers, whether you call this mistakes or bugs. When Facebook reached 500 million users they made a Thanks album in which they took one photo for Facebook India page, but sometimes it happens that while taking group photo all the members were not around for the shoot. So later we use some kind of photo editing software like Adobe Photoshop to add those missing members in the snap. And by seeing the below photo for Facebook India page it looks the same things happened.

But if see the image little closer you will notice that two women who is seem to be standing behind their male colleagues are not real. It’s a bad photo editing work done by Facebook.

And you must have notice face recognition feature sometimes you must have show it at the top-right corner in Facebook which I didn’t feel it useful. And it doesn’t matter which way we take it if it won’t work in a proper way. As you can see in the below image

So what do you think, do Facebook needs better employees?

Facebook Making Users To Make Less Spam Request

Facebook added a new security update to stop misuse (spamming) of sending friend request. As many of you play social game on Facebook (like: FarmVille, Mafia Wars and etc), so they (social games) give advantage to their players who have friends playing the same game with you. So it’s not necessary everyone have hundreds of friends playing the same gave (or even playing any game) so people send friend request to unknown people (stranger) who play the certain social games (see in the image).

People are walling on Facebook Like page
so people who play those games can add them

And few people send friend request to advertise or market there blog, website and other stuffs. So Facebook made this update, so people can’t disturb unknown people (especially opposite sex). While you send any friend request to people you might don’t know the popup will show something like this (see in image below).

Even if you try to add people suggested by Facebook, it may happen that you won’t be able to add them also. If you want to add people you must have few mutual friends, you have connected with that person before through messages or you need to send them a message to add you.

Let us know what you think about it...
