Increased Error Rates and Latencies


Lambda synchronous invocation APIs have recovered. We are still working on processing the backlog of asynchronous Lambda invocations that accumulated during the event, including invocations from other AWS services (such as SQS and EventBridge). Lambda is working to process these messages during the next few hours and during this time, we expect to see continued delays in the execution of asynchronous invocations.

About Our Amazon Web Services Status Page Integration

Amazon Web Services is a Cloud Infrastructure solution that StatusGator has been monitoring since March 2015. Over the past over 8 years, we have collected data on on more than 1,571 outages that affected Amazon Web Services users. When Amazon Web Services publishes downtime on their status page, they do so across 4,493 components and 30 groups using 3 different statuses: up, warn, and down which we use to provide granular uptime metrics and notifications.

More than 3,600 StatusGator users monitor Amazon Web Services to get notified when it's down or has an outage. This makes it one of the most popular cloud infrastructure services monitored on our platform. We've sent more than 755,400 notifications to our users about Amazon Web Services incidents, providing transparency and peace of mind. You can get alerts by signing up for a free StatusGator account.

If Amazon Web Services is having system outages or experiencing other critical issues, red down notifications appear on the status page. In most cases, it means that core functions are not working properly, or there is some other serious customer-impacting event underway.

Warn notifications are used when Amazon Web Services is undergoing a non-critical issue like minor service issues, performance degradation, non-core bugs, capacity issues, or problems affecting a small number of users.

Amazon Web Services does not post separate notifications for planned maintenance work so we are unable to send notifications when maintenance windows begin. If you need Amazon Web Services maintenance notifications, please email us.

Amazon Web Services does not publish a feed of proactive maintenance events on their status page at this time. If they do, be sure to let us know and we'll aggregate Amazon Web Services maintenance events into your unified calendar.

When Amazon Web Services posts issues on their status page, we collect the main headline message and include that brief information or overview in notifications to StatusGator subscribers.

When Amazon Web Services has outages or other service-impacting events on their status page, we pull down the detailed informational updates and include them in notifications. These messages often include the current details about how the problem is being mitigated, or when the next update will occur.

Because Amazon Web Services has several components, each with their individual statuses, StatusGator can differentiate the status of each component in our notifications to you. This means, you can filter your status page notifications based on the services, regions, or components you utilize. This is an essential feature for complex services with many components or services spread out across many regions.
