Fastly's service status

Fastly continuously monitors the status of our global network and the health of all its related services and posts regular notices about them to customers. Any time we schedule maintenance, upgrade hardware, re-route traffic, or experience service interruptions, we post updates on our service status page at https://www.fastlystatus.com. A complete, filterable history of past events is also available at https://www.fastlystatus.com/incidents.

Viewing summaries of current and past events

Summary posts related to the current status of any active incidents appear at the top of the Fastly service status page. Fastly also keeps track of all past statuses, displaying the most recent of them on the main status page, which is organized into the following sections:

  • Current status. When no active events are ongoing, the Current stats area displays the Normal status indicator. When incidents or events are in progress, you'll see them summarized here.
  • History Grid. The history grid displays the individual, daily status of each of Fastly's network and service components and their sub-components for today and the previous six days using indicator icons for each date. Click the plus icon next to any component to expand the view to display indicators for all sub-components. Click the arrow icons to the right and left of the dates to view previous weeks at a glance.
  • Incidents (Last 15 Days). The Incidents area displays summaries of the most recent past incidents and events, grouped by month, for the past 15 days. Click on an incident title to view its full history and details.
  • Scheduled Maintenance (Last 15 days). The Scheduled Maintenance area displays summaries of the most recently scheduled maintenance events, grouped by month, for the past 15 days. Click on an incident title to view its full history and details.
  • Business Continuity (Last 365 Days). The Business Continuity area displays summaries about major world events for which Fastly has posted details about our level of readiness to maintain critical functions.

Older, past history for incidents and scheduled maintenance as well as full details about each specific event are available at https://www.fastlystatus.com/incidents.
