Our new API status page

At HyperTrack we are building the easiest way for developers to implement location tracking in their applications. The performance and reliability of our API services contributes to the performance and reliability of these applications. Therefore one of our goals is to make this information publicly visible. Expect us to keep you fully informed of any issues with HyperTrack.

With this objective our services status page is going live today at status.hypertrack.io. The status page will give you instant uptime information for all HyperTrack services. In addition any performance issues or outages will be reported on it. You can subscribe via email to the updates in which case you will receive all incident reports in your inbox. Alternatively you can follow @hypertrackinfo on Twitter.

Response time metrics

The status page shows the median and 95th percentile response times in milliseconds for the API. The median is a good estimate of the average response times. The 95th percentile captures the response times for the worst 5% of all requests at a given point of time.

You can filter the metrics to look at response times for as far as the last month. As we optimize our stack our responses will only get quicker.

Source code

The HyperTrack status page is built on Cachet an open source status page system. Cachet is definitely recommended if you are looking for a similar solution. We forked the main repository to modify how the metrics are fetched and displayed. If you want to dive into it our fork’s source code is available here.

Tracking our response times helps us improve our response times even faster. Perhaps you could improve the performance of your operations with location tracking? Sign up to try HyperTrack.
