AzureWatch's email provider (Amazon SES) has without warning suspended our account. At this time, AzureWatch is not sending any emails out. Portal, monitoring, auto-scaling, and other automation services continue to run.
CloudMonix email services were also impacted but have now been restored due to less complexity involved.
UPDATE: On 2015/09/20 - email services were restored approximately 24hrs after initial outage.
AzureWatch experienced an outage with its Portal/Website. Monitoring/auto-scaling services were not impacted. Outage lasted for approximately 6hrs
- Major: AzureWatch alongside Azure has suffered a major outage that lasted for approximately 1.5hrs (from 6:48pm to 8:23pm, Central time, 11/18/2014). Outage was related to general network timeouts within Azure data centers and prevented AzureWatch properly performing monitoring.
- Severe: We're experiencing connectivity issues to our back-end databases hosted in SQL Azure. At this time monitoring and access to AzureWatch management portal are impacted. We apologize for this issue and have contacted Microsoft regarding resolution.
- Outage duration: ~1hr
A planned upgrade to AzureWatch Main website, Management Portal and Monitoring Service has been rolled back after 10 minutes of running in production due to a discovered issue. After the upgrade, a number of customers began receiving false alerts as AzureWatch attempted to scale their no-longer existing (but configured for scaling) deployments. Prior to the upgrade, AzureWatch used to simply ignore deployments that were no longer present, even if it was configured to monitor and scale them.
While the discovered issue had no bearing on production use and monitoring, the amount of false alerts sent to customers mail boxes every minute was deemed inappropriate and upgrade has been rolled back until a fix can be applied.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
We are seeing world-wide connectivity errors connecting to Azure Storage. Problems appear to be caused by an expired Azure SSL certificate
This Azure-related outage is impacting AzureWatch's ability to monitor customers subscriptions
All Azure-related services have been restored approximately 10 hours after the Azure Storage-related outage started. AzureWatch was sending alerts to customers who monitor their Storage Accounts and who have enabled the "Alert on Failure" option. During the outage, AzureWatch Management Portal was unavailable.
All AzureWatch related services are now running normally
