The new status page of the openSUSE infrastructure team provides updates on how the systems of the openSUSE community are doing. If there are interruptions to service, we will post a note here.
The idea behind the new status page is to inform our users via a central point about outages or service interruptions, so there should be no need to check other resources, if there is an outage or problem. By using the open source status page system Cachet, we benefit from the work of another great community, while we try to contribute back by doing marketing and pushing our changes upstream.
Cachet has - beside others - the following wonderful features:
- Email subscriptions: users can subscribe with their Email address to get informed about incidents via personal Email
- RSS and Atom feeds: just put the links to the feeds (provided at the bottom of the page) into your favorite newsreader to get incident updates via RSS feeds
- Nice overview about the provided services: as the openSUSE community is providing so many services, the status page might be a good starting point for everyone to get an overview
At the moment, the page is not fully operational: we might change some settings and/or add some more features. But it might already be good enough to get the idea behind it.
As always, if you are experiencing any issues with the openSUSE infrastructure, don't hesitate to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or via irc.opensuse.org/#opensuse-admin and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
