Elevated API error rates

Details

We continue to experience elevated API error rates in a single Availability Zone (usgw1-az1) in the US-GOV-WEST-1 Region. We are working on multiple parallel paths to mitigate the issue. Instances currently running remain unaffected, however, API calls to create, modify or terminate the instances in the affected Availability Zone are not working. APIs calls directed to launch instances targeting the non-impacted Availability Zones are working. While we do not have an estimate for recovery at this time, we are tracking the progress and will provide you with another update by 11:45 AM PDT.

Elevated Error Rates and Latency

Details

We are currently investigating elevated error rates and latencies for file system requests experienced by EFS mount targets in a single Availability Zone (usgw1-az2) in the US-GOV-WEST-1 Region. EFS mount targets in other Availability Zones are unaffected, so you can continue to access regional EFS Standard file systems using those.

Increased Error Rates and Delays

Details

We continue to work on resolving the error rates and increased delays in network propagation for newly launched EC2 instances in a single Availability Zone (use-az2) in US-EAST-1 Region. For AWS services, we have worked to mitigate impact by shifting network traffic away from the affected Availability Zone (use-az2). For customer applications, if you are able to shift away from the affected Availability Zone (use-az2) it may help to mitigate the impact as we work to identify the root cause and resolve the issue.

Network Connectivity Issues

Details

We continue to see recovery of the issue causing increased networking latencies and errors affecting Availability Zones (usw2-az1 and usw2-az2) in the US-WEST-2 Region. We’re continuing to monitor network mapping latencies and will provide a final update once all has been confirmed to be operating normally.

Network Connectivity Issues

Details

We continue to progress toward resolving the increased networking latencies and errors affecting Availability Zones (usw2-az1 and usw2-az2) in the US-WEST-2 Region. At this time, we are approximately 50% completed with the update to address resource contention within the subsystem responsible for network mappings propagation in the usw2-az2 Availability Zone. Once we complete the update in usw2-az2, we will then move on to usw2-az1. Our current expectation is to have both Availability Zones fully resolved within the next 60 to 90 minutes, and we will continue to provide updates as recovery progresses.

About Our Amazon Elastic File System Status Page Integration

Amazon Elastic File System is a Cloud Infrastructure solution that StatusGator has been monitoring since March 2015. Over the past about 9 years, we have collected data on on more than 1,646 outages that affected Amazon Elastic File System users. When Amazon Elastic File System publishes downtime on their status page, they do so across 4,846 components and 31 groups using 3 different statuses: up, warn, and down which we use to provide granular uptime metrics and notifications.

More than 3,900 StatusGator users monitor Amazon Elastic File System 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 763,000 notifications to our users about Amazon Elastic File System incidents, providing transparency and peace of mind. You can get alerts by signing up for a free StatusGator account.

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

Amazon Elastic File System 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 Elastic File System maintenance events into your unified calendar.

When Amazon Elastic File System 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 Elastic File System 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 Elastic File System 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.
