Normally, the page will display "All Systems Operational".

If something known to be wrong, instead there will be a brief description of the issue and who it affects.

Updates are posted manually and will not be instant: they are written by the same engineers who are working on troubleshooting and resolving the problem.

The two high-level components on the page, "Reading" and "Editing", also provide information about who is affected: if there is an outage declared for only "Editing", then users who are logged out and only reading popular articles are unlikely to be affected.

Metrics

A key feature of the new status page is a set of five high-level metrics that give a look into the overall health and performance of the wiki environment. We chose a set of indicators that would show widespread issues as obvious deviations from normal, so that non-technical people could look at the graphs and say “ah, yes, something is wrong”. Automatically publishing these metrics means that users can have some idea that something is wrong for everyone, not just themselves, even before our engineers have a chance to post an update.

Each metric is described below.

Total request volume

User-reported connectivity errors
