Ambientweather.net down?
« on: August 30, 2020, 09:02:01 AM »
Ambientweather.net is not been updating data for me since about 6:15 am EDT.
Did the usual things; reboot router, reboot WS-2000 console; checked to see if I am still connected via "Devices" at the ambientweather.net. Blue icon is present on WS-2000 console.
WU is updating/uploading data just fine both to their web site and to weewx...
Can anyone confirm that ambientweather.net is functioning normally today?

I've notice a number of sites having issues this morning. Not just ambientweather, this one wxforum.net is also having issues for me, with frequent timeouts on reload.

I know it's not me as other sites are fine, and have restarted my routers just in case.

I can only assume there is a widespread interweb issue somewhere in the US. What it is, no idea.

Other words, guess just wait.

I'm in Norfolk VA, provider is COX.

Thanks for the update.
No issues here with wxforum.net currently, however ambientweather.net seemed slow in displaying the map with my station.
I am located in Canada, Manitoulin Island, Ontario.

First post here but the top of my Ambient.net page has this -

Quote
CloudFlare is experiencing issues. We are monitoring the situation.                                 more info  Acknowledge

Last update is showing "4 hours ago" (which would been since around 6:30ish am EDT at the time I had refreshed it and saw that message)

I also briefly had issues getting to wxforum.net too.  WU seems to be okay and another site I use that uses CloudFlare seems to be okay so far.

At least for me, everything is responding now. ~11:00 AM East coast US. Including AmbientWeather.net.

It's probably because they consider me "special", so I'm probably the only person for whom all this works now. The rest of you will probably have to wait :)

I have no internet service whatsoever, spent hours trying to troubleshoot it this morning. ISP’s website insists that everything’s fine but customer service (my last resort) says there’s an outage. Didn’t know Ambient was also down until I gave up trying to switch my GW1000 and WeatherBridge over to my phone’s hotspot.

WeatherBridge connected just fine, but the GW1000 is just like “nope”, so I did all that for nothing. GW1000 has switched over seamlessly a million times in the past. ](*,)

Update: Internet back up, WeatherBridge + GW1000 functional, Ambient still down.

Must be a VA thing.  :grin:

(still no go here with a page update, but I guess I have to wait for Comcast to do whatever they need to do since Cloudflare updated to say they were slowly coming back up and stabilizing)

Ambientweather.net still down as of noon EDT (for me).
Tried a different DNS resolver - no joy.

Ambientweather.net is not been updating data for me since about 6:15 am EDT.
Did the usual things; reboot router, reboot WS-2000 console; checked to see if I am still connected via "Devices" at the ambientweather.net. Blue icon is present on WS-2000 console.

My internet is up and running. Weathercloud is reporting. Must be Ambient Weather that is down itself. I have no other issues here in North Texas. Central time 532 this morning the station went off line. It missed reporting the last .28 of rain from the storm we had early this morning. 6+ hours now.

I'm able to access it fine as off 11AM Eastern US. However its not showing new data.

BUT!!! If you look at the page there is a message just under the map, which explains that

"DigitalOcean is experiencing issues. We are currently processing the backlog of station data."

Other words, give it time.

What is fascinating is duplicating the tabs side by side and refreshing newer ones respectively, and noting that mine went from the (last) data displayed "6 hours ago", then to "4 hours ago" and now it is showing "2 hours ago".  So it is apparently uploading from their backups.  :lol:

And yup - just getting that notice -

Thanks everyone for responding. Yes, do nothing was the best strategy  :grin:

Ambientweather.net is back! plus AW API for Wim's weather template is back online although can't determine when exactly the issue was resolved.

No lost data  at AW however pwsweather.com last data entry today was 11:24 am EDT. No data after that.

Ambientweather.net still down as of noon EDT (for me).
Tried a different DNS resolver - no joy.

Ambientweather.net is not been updating data for me since about 6:15 am EDT.
