I am sure most here have noticed the recent Vortex service outages on the end of Nexus itself in which users were not able to login or appeared logout of Vortex or the site. I am wondering as a someone that dabbles daily in enterprise datacentre hosting myself would it not be beneficial to make a limited status page aka heartbeat monitor for services?
The Cloudflare CDN message that a service can't be reached is most times misleading and it does not work all the time from own corporate experience. Furthermore Vortex does not really throw up any meaningful error message itself which means you can only guess what is going on. While there are public non affiliated services like downdetector, is it down or is it just me they do not handle communication between applications either.
I am not suggesting a full blown NOC heartbeat monitoring service just something simple as Site unreachable, Connection to user database interrupted please try again later. Or even more simple a we are experiencing technical difficulty pop-up or banner.
I have no idea if this suggestion has been made before or rejected as the forum search function ironically is throwing up a generic error 500 message
