Site Maintenance - 19th-20th September

UPDATE: This is now complete. Thanks for your patience.

We’ll be performing essential maintenance on our backend systems for around 9 hours on the weekend of the 19th-20th of September. The Last.fm website will be available while this is happening, but users will be logged out and the radio will be unavailable. This won’t result in any visible changes, but will help improve the performance of the site.

Most users won’t notice any problems with scrobbling, although some users may not be able to scrobble until the downtime is over. In any case, your client will save everything so scrobbles won’t be lost.

This downtime will also affect the Last.fm desktop and mobile clients as well as third-party applications using our API.

We rarely need to perform maintenance which affects our users; most of our infrastructure is designed so all maintenance can be performed with no effect on the site itself. However, one part we can’t touch without affecting the site is our global database, and this is due for a software upgrade. We’re planning to start this on Saturday morning (our quietest day), London time.

While the maintenance is happening, you can check our status page and twitter account for the latest news.

    9 hours :O

    I hope this “software update” will make Last.fm even more awesome ^^

    9 hours :)

    I assume your global db has some resilience behind it so this software upgrade must be some major schema change or something. Is there a behind-the-scenes tech blog for last.fm? Best of luck.

    Wow… I’m lucky, I accidentally catched this tweet. My 3rd-party app runs exactly then.

    Do you have any more specifics such as times? Or should I postpone the app to run on Monday?

    Thanks for the advance notice. Much appreciated. (Found it first in Twitter)

    I’m guessing you mean overnight 19/20th?

    I must say that last.fm along with twitter are 2 sites I have visited the most in the last 1 year (apart from Google I suppose). I hope the upgrade makes radio pause-able ‘coz streaming sometimes causes buffering…

    Just thought I would share my love for last.fm ^^

    @Tom Allender: This is primarily a software upgrade for our main Postgres database, which is pretty massive. Unfortunately these things still require downtime.

    @Babs 05: We’re starting on Sarturday morning (BST).

  23. Janne
    16 September, 12:11

    There are these annoying tags called “altar of metalgods” which allways everyone hates.
    When you are doing the maintenance please get rid of them.

    Oh and what new shall we except after the update ?

    16 September, 12:36

    Thanks for the advance notice- I hope this may even solve a problem I am having at the moment. Every time I try to tag, love or add a song while I am listening to it – the music stops and then starts. Also sometimes the song is not saved.
    But love Last FM . – Music means a lot to me :D

    16 September, 12:43

    I’m experiencing those problems now. I’m listening to music and my track remains in my profile page until it finishes then vanishes..I’ve reloaded the scrobbler app and constant page refreshes and my tracks aren’t showing up in my recently played list in the scrobbler app. Anyone else experiencing this problem?

    GRAMMstein – 16 September, 12:43
  36. MacGyver76
    16 September, 12:46

    Maybe the site maintenance was started earlier? Because my scrobbled tracks was deleted. I had over 50,000 and now I’ve only 4. What happened?

    MacGyver76 – 16 September, 12:46

    16 September, 12:57

    Thanks for the heads up. I’ll also take this opportunity to make a requests. Can the podcasts and music be somehow separated on the charts? Can the amount of time something listened to be measured as well? A 18 min song by one band > three 2 min songs by another.

    BurgerDST – 16 September, 12:57

    r and GRAMMstein, I had the same problem few days ago, but it turned out that my computer’s time/date is wrong(no ide how this happened). Check your computer’s time/zone(daylight changes sorta thing) and it’s compatibility with your last.fm.

    And yes, I have the same problem as MacGyver76, + now it doesn’t even scrobble!

    Daftkens – 16 September, 13:33

    Będziemy wykonywania podstawowych prac konserwacyjnych na naszych systemów zaplecza około 9 godzin na weekend 19.-20 września. Strona Last.fm będą dostępne podczas gdy to się dzieje, ale użytkownicy będą się wylogować i radio będą niedostępne. Nie spowoduje to żadnych widocznych zmian, ale pomoże zwiększyć wydajność strony.

    Większość użytkowników nie zauważy jakieś problemy z scrobbling, choć niektórzy użytkownicy mogą nie być w stanie scrobblowania do przerwy się skończyła. W każdym przypadku klient zapisze wszystko tak scrobbles nie zostaną utracone.

    Niedostępności wpłynie także na pulpicie Last.fm i mobilnych klientów, jak również aplikacje firm trzecich przy użyciu naszego interfejsu API.

    Rzadko potrzeby przeprowadzenia konserwacji, które dotyka naszych użytkowników, większość naszej infrastruktury jest tak skonstruowane, całość obsługi technicznej mogą być wykonywane bez wpływu na samej witrynie. Jednakże, z jednej strony nie można dotykać bez wpływu na stronie internetowej naszej światowej bazie danych, a to ze względu na aktualizację oprogramowania. Planujemy rozpocząć tę sobotę rano (naszego najcichsze dni), czasu londyńskiego.

    Mimo utrzymania się dzieje, można sprawdzić na naszej stronie status i Twitter uwagę na najnowsze informacje.

    will it fix the slow update times and accuracy of artists plays?? I know that our bands plays (she’s themorning and thenight) have even sometimes gotten smaller, and it doesn’t always accurately show listeners and plays – or listening now section isn’t always particular. Anyway hope this is getting looked at.

    They should make an option for choice of design, as in Old/New, same as the Red/Black design we already have. Think about it folks, that would make all the old LastFm lovers super happy! And would also keep the the new fans happy as well…

    I think it would be fair for all subscribers to have their current subscription period extended with those 9 hours during which the service is not available for them. Unless you want to refund the equivalent of those 9 hours to all affected subscribers.

    We’re not paying for radio unavailability due to lastfm particular problems.

    It’s great that you announced this, but you made a tactical mistake which has resulted in hundreds of ‘will this upgrade fix problem x?’ comments: tell us why you need to upgrade to a newer version of Postgres.

    Will the db be faster? Are you about to add some functionality which takes advantage of some new feature? Do you need to upgrade your servers to an OS which won’t run the old db version?

    If none of these apply, why are you upgrading?

    Thanks for the heads up. Great site, BTW.

    Two questions:

    1. I have been on a number of these music/social networking sites and they seem to be getting closed down faster than they startup. You guys have been pretty rock solid – what can ‘we’ (the gracious and appreciative end-user) do to help ensure that you stay active and alive?

    2. Is there any way you can add some interoperability to other apps, specifically location based services? ie TuneUp for the Mac uses my location and then pulls from my library to determine what artists I am most interested in and it then displays all concerts by said artists within a set radius. Also keeps me posted on news and releases from my artists.

    Just some thoughts. I will try to find the ‘requested features’ or whatever portion of the blog. Thanks guys.

    18 September, 15:12

    Dear LastFM,
    Since discovering that you exist, my listening life on the Internet has changed for the Better. Perhaps you could tidy up some of the selections on the playlist as there are way too many selections that look as they are repeated within the list further down each page only with spelling or minor modifications of things added or omitted or else they would be added to the most popularly listed number at the Top of the lists. Of Course things like Extended / Album/ Producer-Modified Versions you could list seperately. If somebody could be kind enough to have a team of persons who could do this it would make selecting a track far more easier and for those like me who use the Public Libraries Computers where you only get up to 55 minutes per session of time before the System shuts you down till tomorrow, far quicker too.
    I don’t appreciate the fact that you will play my selection from an updated version of the Hit I want not the Original Version which should also be mentioned on any artists list as well as being a Full Track.
    Thanks For LastFM.

    I would appreciate you stating a specific time instead of “start this on Saturday morning” because morning lasts from 6 to 12 hours, depending upon the definition that one uses. For example, the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary defines morning as “1 a : dawn b : the time from sunrise to noon c : the time from midnight to noon”. What time on Saturday morning are you going to begin the Site Maintenance?

    I hope the maintenence does not mean scrobbles will mysteriously vanish from my library (again). Just before last xmas, when a few things were jiggled about at last.fm, approx 2000 tracks from my library got deleted by someone.

    A couple of weeks ago, when you had a tidy up and the new header and search engine went live, I lost 900+ tracks from my library – they never reappeared either.

    I’m hoping my libarary remains intact over the weekend. Thanks.

    like “Assassin” e.g… you got german metalheads and french hip hop fans fighting who is the best / real assassin… and all i listen to is the jamaican reggae / dancehall artist^^

    oh yeah… these days i got the same problem as GRAMMstein… but only from time to time so itßs not too important! ;)

    I think we all appreciate the hard work of the team. I know these maintenance windows have some rough hours having worked in Ops myself.

    The team is doing a a GREAT JOB! Only a few minor 403 errors during the window which is how I found the Status and blog pages, which BTW are very helpful. Again, thank you for making Last.FM possible :)
