API Temporarily Halted - Chain Moving Normally

Details

Identified - The public Helium API is currently not showing block and transaction data after block 1621471 due to a missing ETL patch for a new transaction type. The chain is still performing other activity normally and is not affected.Funds are safe and activity like Proof of Coverage and Data Transfers continue normally. The API, however, is behind the chain so apps that onboard and move Hotspots, transfer HNT and MOBILE through the API, etc. will be degraded until the API is able to process blocks again. Please do not resubmit transactions until patches are applied on public ETL and API instances. More information on these patches are being shared on Discord and will be published shortly.

Supported Features

We support the following features in our integration with the Helium status page:

If Helium 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 Helium 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.

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

Since Helium 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 Helium 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 Helium 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 Helium 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.
