Hello Dreamhost. I couldn’t find a statement of what we should expect from status.dreamhost.com, in terms of how serious an outage needs to be in order for it to be documented there.
According to SiteUpTime, one of my Dreamhost sites was down for more than an hour from around 13:00 on 14th December, then up for a short while, then down again for more than an hour from around 14:30.
According to Pingdom (which has a finer resolution), another of my Dreamhost sites was “UP again at 12/14/2012 02:13:09PM, after 1h 7m of downtime”, and then “UP again at 12/14/2012 04:20:09PM, after 1h 33m of downtime”.
While the sites were down, I was puzzled not to see anything about any problem on status.dreamhost.com.
I understand that the intention of status.dreamhost.com is not to document every tiny outage, but is for major outages.
Please could you give an indication of how major is major?
