Monday's Tracker Outage, New Status Page

This week started on the wrong foot with a 1 hour and 45 minute outage early Monday morning, that affected many of you. I’d like to apologize for this, and shed some light on what happened.

It began as a network outage at our hosting provider’s data center, which was resolved fairly quickly. Unfortunately, Tracker’s load balancers did not recover correctly, as they should have automatically, and to complete the perfect storm, the alerting mechanism that’s supposed to notify us and the hosting provider’s operations team did not work either due to misconfiguration.

The load balancer configuration issue has been corrected, and we’re confident that this problem will not occur again. Tracker’s production environment is designed to recover automatically from network and other types of outages, and our hosting provider monitors and responds to problems on a 24/7 basis.

To help you determine if Tracker is experiencing an outage in the future, we’ve enabled a public status page for Tracker, via Pingdom, one of the site monitoring services that we rely on.

    Thanks for the update page, I was looking for something like that. In addition to that: Please post updates on twitter, so we know that there is actually someone working on the problem. I wrote you on twitter this week and no one answered …
    We have our twitter feed on our downtime-page so updates are visible there as well …
    Viele Grüße aus Berlin

      Thanks Tobias….we do update Twitter, but there may be a delay if it’s after hours for the dev & support team (although our hosting provider operates 24/7). And we do plan on launching a more comprehensive status page that will include the Twitter feed and any planned maintenance windows.
