My sites were down again today. When I went to view the offline status page it said everything was fine (which it obviously was not) and when I went to the online stats it showed all of my sites as being down for 31 seconds or so. Which I thought was cool, at least the online stats were showing that something was wrong.
After a minute or so I hit refresh on the status page and it showed that everything was back up. The weird part is though that it now shows that the system has been up for 5 months 20 days. Which it clearly has not. It was down today. It has been down a few times in the past 5 months.
What exactly does that stat mean when it says 5 months?
It is also showing 100% uptime today, this week, this month, which has not been my experience.
What do these stats actually mean if they don’t mean my sites are available?
