Network Connectivity in SFO

Details

Update - We have received numerous reports of DNS resolution issues in SFO1 and are now tracking that incident here: https://status.digitalocean.com/incidents/h6yw8yckkcthAt this time, we do not believe the DNS issues in SFO1 are related to this incident. Our upstream provider continues to work to fully resolve the issue, but traffic has remained shifted away from that provider, which mitigated user impact at 20:10 UTC. If you continue to face network issues to services in SFO1, we invite you to submit a ticket with our Support team, who will be happy to assist. May 09, 2023 - 02:12 UTC

Investigating - Our Engineering team is investigating user reports of services in our SFO1 region being unable to complete DNS lookups/resolve domains. This includes running commands on Droplets that utilize DNS lookups, such as "wget" and "apt update", etc. Inbound network connections to services should still be operating normally. Thank you for your patience as our team works to understand the root cause of the issue. We'll post an update once we have further information. May 09, 2023 - 02:06 UTC

About Our DigitalOcean DNS Status Page Integration

DigitalOcean DNS is a Cloud Infrastructure and Hosting solution that StatusGator has been monitoring since March 2015. Over the past almost 9 years, we have collected data on on more than 2,836 outages that affected DigitalOcean DNS users. When DigitalOcean DNS publishes downtime on their status page, they do so across 173 components and 14 groups using 4 different statuses: up, warn, down, and maintenance which we use to provide granular uptime metrics and notifications.

More than 500 StatusGator users monitor DigitalOcean DNS to get notified when it's down, is under maintenance, or has an outage. This makes it one of the most popular cloud infrastructure services monitored on our platform. We've sent more than 133,300 notifications to our users about DigitalOcean DNS incidents, providing transparency and peace of mind. You can get alerts by signing up for a free StatusGator account.

If DigitalOcean DNS 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 DigitalOcean DNS 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.

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

Since DigitalOcean DNS 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 DigitalOcean DNS 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 DigitalOcean DNS 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 DigitalOcean DNS 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.
