Server Status January 15 2009

Hi everyone,

We experienced issues between 6am to 8:30am EST. The problem has been fixed and everything is back to normal.

My apologies for any trouble this caused.

  1. George –

    You have a problem R I G H T N O W!. (MONDAY 3/16 6:36 EST)
    Your site and service are DOWN.
    My business is dead in the water.

    THIS NEEDS IMMEDIATE ATTENTION.

    –Josh

    Likewise.
    We really need some sort of email notify when the service is down. Relying on RSS feeds etc isnt really useful.

    Hi Josh and Tim,

    Sorry for any trouble this caused. We experienced a downtime between roughly 6:15am to 7:45am EST. The problem has been fixed and I posted on our blog here: https://webbasedcron.wordpress.com/2009/03/16/server-status-march-16.

    The RSS feeds are meant to give information about the state of your cron jobs, not WebBasedCron.

    Sorry for any trouble,
    George

    Hi.

    Thanks for the update.

    I appreciate the RSS feeds are for my jobs, but thats the only way to effectively monitor whether wbc.com and my site CRON tasks are running.

    There used to be mails on success or fail which – although cumbersome for your sys – were a reliable way to check if things were working.

    Anyway, I appreciate the wbc site and am pleased its back up.

    Could you perhaps implement a status page, RSS feed or email alert to let us know when wbc is down?

    Cheers
    Tim

    Hi Tim,

    I agree with you a way to tell people server status is important. I’ll definitely create a status page, I’ll have this up within a week.

    Thanks,
    George

    Hi Tim,

    I created the Status page like you suggested. Please see my post here:
