Message

Elevated API error rates

Details

We are seeing broad signs of recovery for the increased API error rates and failures for new instance launches in a single Availability Zone (usgw1-az1) in the US-GOV-WEST-1 Region. Customers may still see some API error rates while our mitigation efforts complete, however, retries would likely succeed. We will provide you with another update by 1:30 PM PDT.

Message

Elevated API error rates

Details

We are experiencing elevated API error rates in a single Availability Zone (usgw1-az1) in the US-GOV-WEST-1 Region. Instances currently running are 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. We have identified the root cause and are working to mitigate the issue.

Ohio - Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service

Message

Increased delays in EC2 instance and Status Check metrics

Details

We have identified the root cause for the increased delays in EC2 instance and Status Check metrics, including DescribeInstances and DescribeInstanceStatus API results, in a single Availability Zone (use2-az1) in the US-EAST-2 Region. During this time, some alarms on delayed metrics may transition into an INSUFFICIENT_DATA state. Launching and terminating instances are not affected, but the status of these actions may be delayed. We will provide another update by 2:30 PM PDT.

Message

Increased API Error Rates

Details

We are investigating increased API error rates for the EC2 APIs in the US-EAST-1 Region. This is mainly affecting the DescribeInstanceTypes, DescribeInstanceTypeOfferings and DescribeReservedInstancesOfferings APIs. During this time, customers may receive an Internal Error displayed in the Management Console under the "Instance Types" section. We are actively working on identifying the root cause. We will provide another update by 2:30 PM PDT, or sooner if we have additional information to share.

Increased Error Rates for Cluster Upgrades

Type WARN
Affected Components

N. Virginia - Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service

Message

Increased Error Rates for Cluster Upgrades

Details

We can confirm that customers are experiencing elevated error rates for cluster upgrade operations in the US-EAST-1 Region. This is a result of actions we took to mitigate additional customer impact following the EC2 network propagation event yesterday in a single Availability Zone (use1-az2). For EKS customers, we have purposely disabled cluster upgrade operations to prevent any impact to existing clusters and running applications. We have identified the root cause for the underlying issue and are working towards mitigating the current impact. We will enable cluster upgrade operations once the issue is resolved. We will provide an update within the next 60 minutes, or sooner if we have additional information to share.

About Our Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service Status Page Integration

Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service 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 Kubernetes Service users. When Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service publishes downtime on their status page, they do so across 4,847 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 Kubernetes Service 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 Kubernetes Service incidents, providing transparency and peace of mind. You can get alerts by signing up for a free StatusGator account.

If Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service 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 Kubernetes Service 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 Kubernetes Service 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 Kubernetes Service maintenance notifications, please email us.

Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service 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 Kubernetes Service maintenance events into your unified calendar.

When Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service 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 Kubernetes Service 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 Kubernetes Service 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.
