Recent updates to the procps package in CentOS have caused issues with some utilities on container-native images (namely ps, top and related tools from the procps package). This can manifest either after a yum update or upon provisioning the latest images.
If you encounter this, an immediate workaround is to upload the attached procps-3.2.8-30.el6.x86_64.rpm to affected machines and run:
rpm -i --force procps-3.2.8-30.el6.x86_64.rpm
or to grab the attachment directly from this post:
rpm -i --force "https://help.joyent.com/attachments/token/d9YrOO37f4Xdj2xOym4pY5vHi/?name=procps-3.2.8-30.el6.x86_64.rpm"
Afterwards you'll want to exclude the procps package from updates for the time being either by running
yum update ---exclude=procps*
when updating or by adding the following line to /etc/yum.conf:

The API updates to the other data centers are (still) scheduled to begin at the times shown below.
We have scheduled API service updates in all of our data centers for this upcoming Tuesday, 1-September-2015. The expected duration of impact is approximately 60 minutes per data center, and the scheduled start times for each data center are outlined as follows:
EU-AMS-1: 12:00 PDT 1-Sep-2015 (19:00 UTC 1-Sep-2015) Completed as of 12:30 PDT (19:30 UTC)

Your ability to manage your instances via the API or through my.joyent.com will be limited during this time. Running instances will experience no impact other than orchestration (stopping/starting/destroying of VMs). We appreciate your patience and understanding, and will update this notice as soon as the maintenance is completed.

Due to a change made by one of our network providers, we have identified an issue with an entry that may exist in the /etc/resolv.conf file of your instance(s) -- an entry which specifies a name server that no longer works. To prevent potential networking issues, we suggest that you check your /etc/resolv.conf file for the following entry:
If the above entry exists, please remove it or comment it out. Going forward, this issue will not be seen on newly-provisioned instances.
