In our efforts to continually improve the GoGrid platform, we have released a new kernel patch for our 64-bit Linux customers which can dramatically improve performance.
NOTE: This update only applies to GoGrid customers. Users of other Linux distributions OUTSIDE of GoGrid should NOT apply this patch.
This kernel patch is relatively trivial to install and under some circumstances will dramatically improve disk drive performance.
To install the kernel patch, log into any 64-bit Linux (RHEL or CentOS) server in your GoGrid cloud that was instantiated before 2/12/09.
From the command line, enter the following command on your 64-bit Linux server:
rm ˆf pviofix.sh ; wget ftp://ftp.gogrid.com/pviofix.sh && bash pviofix.sh
Please note that this will require a reboot of your system. GoGrid strongly recommends you apply this patch to improve your system performance.
If you experience any issues or if you require assistance installing this patch, please contact our Support team at 1.877.946.4743 or log a support case via the GoGrid portal.
We appreciate your cooperation in applying this patch.
