Incidents on the Internet – Weekly summary

This is a weekly recurring post about noteworthy incidents on the Internet. This includes for example general network issues, ISP problems and downtime for well-known websites. It may be things that have been detected by us here at Pingdom, or written about by others.

We are not going to be able to cover everything that happens out there, so if we omit anything that you feel is important or interesting, please feel free to add this information in the comments, preferably with a link to a source (such as a news article or service status page with relevant information).

Incidents between November 17 – November 23:
  • Yousendit down: The website of the digital content delivery service Yousendit was unavailable for more than 5 hours on Monday, November 17.
  • LiveJournal migration downtime: While not really an “incident”, the social network LiveJournal was down for close to 3 hours and had performance issues for another 8 hours last Tuesday, November 18, while migrating to a new server facility. To be fair, though, moving such a large service is no simple matter, and some downtime is to be expected.
  • The Europeana digital library crashed on launch day: Europeana, a EU-funded search platform for viewing digitized content from major European libraries and museums (such as the Louvre and British Museum) launched on Thursday, November 20, but had to be taken down pretty much right away. Apparently it proved to be a bit too popular, receiving 10 million hits per hour according to a statement on its website. The service will not reopen until mid-December.

That’s it for this week! If you see anything you would like us to include in next week’s summary, please send us a tip.
