Green Dragon network issues

I wanted to take a moment to address the recent increase in node connection failures during Green Dragon CI builds. As you may now know, Green Dragon nodes keep dropping offline during builds, resulting in error emails being sent out incorrectly. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do immediately to mitigate this issue. After reviewing the logs from our switch it appears we have ethernet ports flapping which may be the cause of the connection drops. We are in the process of ordering some replacement equipment to see if we can isolate the problem a bit more in hopes of getting to a root cause. The random nature of the drops does not aid in the investigation and will make for a much slower process than we all would care for. We are working on this problem actively, it is a top priority and we are very aware of the annoyance the noise is causing folks. I would like to personally apologize for the inconvenience this is causing everyone. We hope to get this resolved as soon as possible. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
