Message

Azure Services - Network latencies - South Africa North and South Africa West

Details

What happened?
Starting at 10:30 UTC on 14 Mar 2024, customers using Azure Services in South Africa North and South Africa West may experience increased network latency or packet drops when accessing their resources.
What do we know so far?
We have determined that multiple fiber cables on the West Coast of Africa — WACS, MainOne, SAT3, ACE — have been impacted which has reduced the total capacity supporting our Regions in South Africa. Customers may have experienced potential instability in capacity around this time.
In addition to these cable impacts, the on-going cable cuts in the Red Sea — EIG, Seacom, AAE-1 — are also impacting the overall capacity on the East Coast of Africa. These incidents together have reduced the total network capacity for most of Africa's regions.
With the current bandwidth demand and network utilization, all services are currently healthy with no issues detected. Working in conjunction with local providers, additional capacity is being added proactively to ensure network stability leading into the South Africa region's business hours on Monday, March 18, 2024.

About Our Azure Status Page Integration

Azure is a Cloud Infrastructure and Microsoft solution that StatusGator has been monitoring since March 2015. Over the past about 9 years, we have collected data on on more than 1,769 outages that affected Azure users. When Azure publishes downtime on their status page, they do so across 5,770 components and 63 groups using 3 different statuses: up, warn, and down which we use to provide granular uptime metrics and notifications.

More than 2,300 StatusGator users monitor Azure 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 162,600 notifications to our users about Azure incidents, providing transparency and peace of mind. You can get alerts by signing up for a free StatusGator account.

If Azure 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 Azure 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.

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

Azure 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 Azure maintenance events into your unified calendar.

When Azure 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 Azure 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 Azure 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.
