Code search rebuilt over the weekend and everything looks good.

Disk expansion complete, and we have started rebuilding the code search index. It will take about 24 hours to finalize the new index.

Disks have been expanded in VMware; however, we will need to put the appliance in maintenance mode briefly in order to expand the filesystem.
Starting at 1:30PM on Friday, April 19, the GitHub appliance will be unavailable while we expand the filesystem.
We will be rebuilding the code search index after the filesystem has been expanded, and it will take approximately 24 hours to build. The service will be usable during this time, however, Pull Requests will likely not show new code. It is recommended not to merge Pull Requests via the web interface until the code search indexes have been rebuilt.
We will update this post with more updates as we have them.

We have disabled the LFS functionality in GitHub. We are unable to re-enable the feature for the individual repositories that were utilizing it, due to limitations in GitHub.
We will be reassessing tomorrow when we have added additional storage to the appliance.

At 5:00 PM today, 4/18/2019, we will be disabling the Large File Storage (LFS) functionality of the github.ncsu.edu appliance.
We intend to enable the functionality for the few repositories that are currently utilizing the LFS service in order to give them time to migrate away from using it. We don’t know at the moment whether we can enable the functionality for specific repositories if it is disabled across the appliance.
We will update this post with more information after 5:00.

Service should now be restored. Code search will be disabled for approximately 24 hours while indexes rebuild.

The GitHub appliance is currently in a degraded state, and is experiencing multiple issues including both git and the web interface.
Staff are investigating and are working to restore service.
