Message

Increased Route 53 Health Check API latency

Details

We are experiencing delays creating, deleting, and updating Route 53 health checks. This is also affecting provisioning and scaling workflows for services like ELB, EKS, and RDS that use Route 53 health checks as well. We have identified the issue and have a path towards recovery, however we do expect that to take at least a couple hours.

Existing Route 53 health checks are operating normally, and are correctly reflecting the health status of their configured resources.

About Our Amazon Route 53 Status Page Integration

Amazon Route 53 is a Cloud Infrastructure solution that StatusGator has been monitoring since March 2015. Over the past almost 9 years, we have collected data on on more than 1,618 outages that affected Amazon Route 53 users. When Amazon Route 53 publishes downtime on their status page, they do so across 4,757 components and 31 groups using 3 different statuses: up, warn, and down which we use to provide granular uptime metrics and notifications.

More than 3,800 StatusGator users monitor Amazon Route 53 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 760,300 notifications to our users about Amazon Route 53 incidents, providing transparency and peace of mind. You can get alerts by signing up for a free StatusGator account.

If Amazon Route 53 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 Route 53 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 Route 53 does not post separate notifications for planned maintenance work so we are unable to send notifications when maintenance windows begin. If you need Amazon Route 53 maintenance notifications, please email us.

Amazon Route 53 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 Route 53 maintenance events into your unified calendar.

When Amazon Route 53 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 Route 53 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 Route 53 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.
