Today's Leap Second Causing Problems for some folks

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
Apparently some folks are having lots of issues today as a result of the
leap second (which I didn't even know about).

(CentOS 5.4)

(Debian)
http://serverfault.com/questions/403732/anyone-else-experiencing-high-rates-of-linux-server-crashes-today

Just an FYI, in case any of you have, or will, experience issues today (I
have not, although I don't run either of these operating systems, and I
keep my systems fairly up to date - or at least I try).

=============================================================== From: Sean Brewer ------------------------------------------------------ This, in combination with the EC2 meltdown last night: today was not a good day. I have an app on EC2 via EngineYard. It became unresponsive around 1:15am. Didn't get it going again until 11:30am. I'm still following the issue through their issue tracker, and there are *still* people whose instances are down.

=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ I had been watching all the machines at work, and we didn't have an issue. We are mostly RHEL 5 and RHEL 6 but we do have a few RHEL4 machines that keep hanging around. We are using NTP servers, and thank goodness we weren't impacted. This was discussed at Summit in a few of the tech sessions, so thats where I learned of it. Plus, I got an errata email from our Satellite server heres a KBase article describing it if anyone is interested: https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/15145
