the reason seems to be that i’m currently flooding another database with very expensive requests

which uh a drop database should be really quick tho? just delete a folder or sth

@charlotte looks more like a blade frame with 2 blade servers on the right and disk arrays on the right.

@charlotte And THAT is why you don't run SELECT * FROM * queries on unindexed tables, kids.

@charlotte
In Spanish we say "Se cayó el servidor/sistema" (roughly "The server/system fell down") when any system is slow or not responding. This is the physical representation of that phrase...=)

@charlotte So that is what happened a couple of times. That makes sense why I couldn't connect to DB

@charlotte once upon a time I stood in a datacenter waiting for an e10k to shut down. It broke through the raised floor almost toppeling over and we did our best to support it. Once it shut down we we able to pull drives … to get her lighter. No customers hurt in this incident, second one took over.

@tabtwo honestly if the structural integrity of a building is at the risk it would be fine to just pull the plug
