About Our AWS Directory Service Status Page Integration

AWS Directory Service is a Cloud Infrastructure solution that StatusGator has been monitoring since March 2015. Over the past over 9 years, we have collected data on on more than 1,663 outages that affected AWS Directory Service users. When AWS Directory Service publishes downtime on their status page, they do so across 4,882 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 AWS Directory 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 767,200 notifications to our users about AWS Directory Service incidents, providing transparency and peace of mind. You can get alerts by signing up for a free StatusGator account.

If AWS Directory 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 AWS Directory 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.

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

AWS Directory 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 AWS Directory Service maintenance events into your unified calendar.

When AWS Directory 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 AWS Directory 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 AWS Directory 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.
