From the Alert Logic Status page, you can:
- View the status, such as Operational or Partial Outage, of each Alert Logic product

Using the Alert Logic Status Page
The Alert Logic Status page provides three main information sections – the overall status of Alert Logic products, statuses for individual products within each of our three data centers, and detailed information about incidents that occurred within the last 24 hours.
The overall status bar gives you a quick indication of whether any Alert Logic products are in a state other than Operational.
If this bar is green and states “All Systems Operational”, all Alert Logic products are in operational status. If any product is in another state, the color and status text on the bar will change based on the number of products in other statuses and the status types.
Using the expanding sections in the middle of the screen, you can view the status of individual Alert Logic products for each data center (US-West-1, US-East-1, and UK-West-1). To view individual statuses, simply click the + (plus sign) icon to the left of the data center.
The icon displayed indicates the status of each product. Possible statuses include:
- Operational – The component is in a healthy state.
- Degraded Performance – Intermittent issues are occurring with the component.
- Partial Outage – Some elements of the component are unavailable.
- Major Outage – The product is unavailable.
- Maintenance – There is currently ongoing maintenance that may impact access to or performance of the component.
If you are unsure of which datacenter you use, refer to the Finding Your Data Center section below.
During an incident, such as an outage, details and updates about the incident will be posted in the Past Incidents section. Once an incident is resolved, these details will display for 30 days before being removed from the page. If you do not subscribe to status notifications, this section can be helpful to keep informed of an ongoing and recent incident.
Finding Your Data Center
To find the status of your Alert Logic products, you need to know which data center(s) you use. Your data center can be easily located in the Alert Logic console using the following procedure.
- Log in to the Alert Logic console.
- Click the US or UK flag in the upper right corner. If you see the menu pictured in the screenshot below, this means you have deployments in more than one data center. If you do not see this menu after clicking the US or UK flag, this means you have a deployment in only one data center and should proceed to step 3.
- Hover your mouse over the US or UK flag in the upper right corner of the page. A tooltip will pop up that displays your data center.
Status Update Notifications
You can keep informed of changes to the status of your Alert Logic products by subscribing to updates on the Status page. Notifications can be sent via email, SMS, WebHook, or RSS feed and are limited only to the region and products you choose.
Subscribing to Status Updates
Use the following procedure to subscribe to status notifications:
- At the top of the Alert Logic Status page, click the Subscribe to Updates button.
A dropdown displays with tabs for the different notification types.
- Select the tab corresponding to the type of notification you want to receive. For example, to receive an SMS message for status alerts, click the tab with the phone icon.
- Complete the fields within the tab and click the Subscribe button.
When you click the Subscribe button, the page updates to allow you to define your notification preferences.
- Select the check boxes corresponding to the data center and products for which you want to receive notifications.
Note: You most likely only need to select checkboxes for one data center. To determine which data center you use, refer to the Finding Your Data Center section above.
- Click Update Preferences.
- (Email notification only) If you subscribed to updates via email message, you will receive an email to confirm your subscription. Follow the instructions in the email to confirm. This step must be completed to receive status notifications.
Note: Notification emails are delivered from firstname.lastname@example.org. You may need to whitelist this email address in your spam settings to ensure Alert Logic status notifications will be received.
Changing Notification Preferences and Unsubscribing
