status.mios.com ...
which could read the status from the twitter feed. Or the other way 'round.

as much as i dont 'get' twitter for personal use, this is a perfect use for it.
the twitter APIs are already in place and would be easy to implement.  
additionally you dont have to be a member/twitter user to view a feed.

honestly i dont care how they do it.

I Never! use twitter.

I assume you have to join twitter to get the status then ?

Why depend on a 3th server/service for just a status readout.. ridiculous imho

I agree.

We used to receive an automatic TXT with UI2 & findvera.com if Vera went offline (for those that remember that)

Your Vera #XXXX is down.
Automatic message sent at 14-12-2009 06:00:01
But to get a notification if the Mios servers are offline would require Vera to generate it.
I suggest Vera should have her own notification server built in.

JOD.

I'm sorry, my responses are limited. You must ask the right questions.

Just need to go to the correct twitter page to see the status- no need for membership, plugins, flash, etc...

When you click on that link, you get a page where you need to sign in or sign up.

Fixed my link in above post... guess this PHP version didn't like the "# " in the hyperlink?

+1 for some sort of improved feedback mechanism.... doesn't matter to me - as long as I know how to find it, and it is accurate

The reason for Twitter is a 3rd party service will most likely be up if there is a failure in DNS for the whole domain MIOS.com  - without a third party, the whole domain and DNS could go down, then status.mios.com also gives you nothing....

I do appreciate the efforts from MIOS to get their servers more solid....but we need a status page

+0.33 twitter + 0.33 blog + 0.33 status page that automatically reports server status

Inside info (wink, wink). When a server goes havoc, trust me, we are usually neck-deep into it. While updating users is a must, having a status page won't help reducing the number of calls, tickets or forum posts from hightop. So, while I agree that something MUST be done regarding providing more information about the system status: one - nobody that gets into server intestines is good at PR and nobody good at PR is getting into server intestines and two - a red dot with no time frame about when it will turn green, will help you all the same as the current no-dots-at-all situation. But again, disruptions should be acknowledged somehow.

I am personally waiting for input on this as a 'all-tech' fix will require some activity from my side too.

+1% status leds in Vera's WebUI stating availability of tunnels/reachability of fwd servers. And all these suggestions do not address the availablity of the notification service...

So whats the (best/most reliable) solution?
