Fark.com status page

This is the status page for Fark's behind-the-scenes geekery. If there's a major outage or problem, we'll try to post something here about it (unless we're too up to our eyeballs in trying to actually fix it)... so check here if Fark's hosed for an extended length of time. Normally this page will be blank. :-) For more minor issues, see Mike's blog, or much more likely, Mike's twitter, Drew's twitter, Fark twitter or all Fark staff/mod/admin twitters together.

Our normal hosting provider is DigitalOcean (since July 2019). They have their own status page. This outage page is hosted at Amazon AWS in case of DigitalOcean problems.


Wed Sep 11 13:40:59 EDT 2019: Some significant progress has been made on database performace tuning, but it obviously still needs more.

Mon Sep 9 15:35:01 EDT 2019: Attempting to tune some MariaDB database parameters for better performance. Some of this tuning might cause brief outages or temporarily worse performance.

No obvious issues at the moment.

Live basic (very basic) health check:

It's probably time I updated this picture from June 2008.
