Sysadmin bloodied by icicle that overheated airport data centre

Anonymous South African Coward Silver badge

Never had any snow or the such, but with the onset of winter our server room temperature monitor would spam us regularly with SMSes when the temperature dropped too low.

Adjusting the aircon helped a bit (a few degrees upwards) but only for a time.

Simply by adjusting the minimum level on the sensor did we manage to stop the SMS spam.

Interesting to note that it only started to bombard us with SMSes between 18:00 and 20:00 - other times of the day it was all peachy and happy and quiet.
