Can't deploy my app in iad

I’m trying to deploy a new version of my app in the IAD DC, but it just gets stuck in pending, and I can’t roll back to an old version, so my app is offline:

$ fly status --all
  Name     = picoshare          
  Owner    = personal           
  Version  = 393                
  Status   = pending            
  Hostname =  

Deployment Status
  ID          = 66e65bb5-1303-706d-5540-ffd3aa6f73c2         
  Version     = v393                                         
  Status      = running

Possibly related:

Also seeing my apps in IAD struggle, and several of them exited unexpectedly.

We had a host go down for a few minutes. Errors or a status of “lost” are related to that, and scheduling was slow up for ~5 minutes while VMs moved to other hosts.

Thanks for the update.

One of my apps seems to now be in a stuck state. Nothing appears to prod it awake.

It’s msc-mongodb and has a volume so perhaps that broke when the host went down?

Looking into this!

Thanks, @michael. I’m seeing my app back online.

App is back up now, and my services are fully restored.


Excellent! It looks like device mapper was hanging on several volumes on the busted host which was preventing a few apps from starting, including yours. Sorry about that. We’ve been debugging this issue for a little while, hopefully we’ll have a permanent fix soon.
