Is Pusher up?
Making Pusher service reliable is our mission. We are trying hard to minimise our service down time, but we do occasionally have down time (mostly for maintenance purposes).
The usual way to check the service availability is to try “curl” command from our dashboard page, but this does not necessarily tell you whether the problem is with your environment (incompatible browser, blocked by proxy, and so on), or with our service.
To solve this problem, we have created another site to show our service availability.
This site receives the status directly from our monitoring system (we use Nagios). If you see “Down” on this site, we have also been alerted – so you know that we are working on the problem. We would like to offer more meaningful information in future, so please let us know at support (at) pusher.com if you have any suggestions.
P.s. If you haven’t done so already, feel free to create a free Pusher account and let us know what you think!
