Weekend Activity Monitor

LONDON HOSTING - SECONDARY SWITCH HARDWARE UPGRADE - Friday 17th / Saturday 18th JANUARY 2020
Informazioni importanti: 
  • The physical HARDWARE upgrade of the Secondary Switches will commence on Friday 17th January from 9pm. Customers will see their Secondary Hosting network access switch connections go down for a short period.

 

  • Once the physical hardware upgrade on the Secondary switches has been completed, and the Secondary switch connections have been restored, the Exchange will then DISABLE the Primary network access switch connectivity. This is to facilitate internal failover tests as well as allowing the Customer Test Session to start on Saturday morning, 18th January with only clients’ Secondary switch connections available, thereby having market messages being directed through the Secondary switch paths.
  • We would ask clients to actively participate in the Customer Test Session on Saturday morning (18th January, from 9am), which will be in TWO PARTS:
  • Part 1 (9am – 11am) – Hosting clients test network connectivity and market platform applications with market messages being routed through Secondary network access switches (with Primary Hosting switch connections being disabled on the Exchange side). Customers are asked to email confirmation to the Exchange when their testing in this phase has been completed.
  • Part 2 (11:30am – 12:30am) – The Exchange restores Primary Hosting network access switch connectivity, and Hosting Service customers test their network connectivity on the Primary switches to ensure the connectivity is OK. Customers are asked to email confirmation to the Exchange when their testing in this phase has been completed.
