Auth0 Outage April 20, 2021 – 3 hours

Today's Auth0 OutageAPImetrics, along with many other services, utilizes a 3rd party provider, Auth0, to operate our sign-in and user authentication processes.   What Happened?Auth0's services in North America failed between 15:35UTV and 15:39UTC on April 21, 2021 making it impossible for our users to sign into their dashboards. For that we are sincerely sorry and we are re-evaluating our use of Auth0 to determine if there is a better provider or other ways to mitigate against the problems reoccurring. The service was restored between 19:14 and 19:18UTC according to our monitoring. Did it impact our monitoring?No. During this period our operational services were [...]

It is not known where the so-called “Spanish” H1N1 influenza pandemic originated, but it is known that the pandemic, which lasted from January 1918 to December 1920 infected essentially every human on the planet. It is a sad feature of history that numerous pandemics of novel infectious diseases have [...]
