What to do when OpenMRS RefApp test environments are down

Of recent our demo and test environments went down and always wonder what brings about the down fall in our test environments. Bamboo build plans depend on these servers during CI and when down the builds return red by default and we may never know the right report on the performed merge until the servers are up to have someone rerun the build manually.

Unfortunately I seem to have nothing to do when these environments are down until an unknown time when they fortunately(in their own time) come back to life.

Two things I would desire to learn;

  • what causes these servers to have Full Service Disruption?

  • is there something that can be done when the service goes down?

One of the causes is too much traffic on a server.
