About Our Instagram Messenger Status Page Integration Instagram Messenger is a Telephony and Telecom solution that StatusGator has been monitoring since September 2022. Over the past almost 2 years, we have collected data on on more than 799 outages that affected Instagram Messenger users. When Instagram Messenger publishes downtime on their status page, they do so across 92 components and 13 groups using 4 different statuses: up, warn, down, and maintenance which we use to provide granular uptime metrics and notifications.

Many StatusGator users monitor Instagram Messenger to get notified when it's down, is under maintenance, or has an outage. We've sent more than 600 notifications to our users about Instagram Messenger incidents, providing transparency and peace of mind. You can get alerts by signing up for a free StatusGator account.

If Instagram Messenger 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 Instagram Messenger 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. Instagram Messenger posts separate notifications for planned maintenance work. StatusGator will notify subscribers when Instagram Messenger enters a pre-planned maintenance window, keeping you up to date.

Since Instagram Messenger publishes a feed of proactive maintenance events on their status page, StatusGator will collect information about these events. Maintenance events for all your services can be viewed within StatusGator as a unified feed.

When Instagram Messenger 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 Instagram Messenger 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 Instagram Messenger 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.
