Oktawave Status Page: special service that present the current status of our infrastructure
Posted by Paweł Gazda on 19.11.2015 22:41
We are pleased to announce a new dedicated service, so that our users will be able to check the current status of Oktawave infrastructure and our services. New service can be found at http://status.oktawave.com and will also include technical messages about the support and implementation tasks.|
The core of the new service is based on alerts from our control mechanism, that continuously reports the operating status of individual elements of our platform. Running sensors have been grouped into aggregates corresponding to each service, which allows us to precisely clarifying their current status. It is these grouped sensors that Oktawave Status Page Service uses as a data source.
Oktawave Status Page Service can show three types of information:
Infrastructure condition has been presented broken down into three states.
Automatic messages are an extension of the functionality implemented by the graphical statuses. For each type of service and (in some cases) for each subregion, application is configured to post automatic messages about the observed change in status. During the service status change application waits for the specified time (10 minutes for OCI services, OVS, OPN, OCS and 20 minutes for others) with publication of the statement. If the status change actually takes longer time than previously estimated, a message is published.
Oktawave Status Page is equipped with a dedicated API that allows access to all the data which are presented on the website. The REST resources can be used to automate reading of the statuses by external applications. Sample solution could be an integration of sensors in the Nagios platform in client infrastructure.
API does not require any authentication.
