Noble Samurai Unplanned Server Outage

Share Button

At approximately 3:30pm this afternoon our servers were brought down by an excess of connections.

Our development team were alerted to the issue and took action to get our servers online again.

Whilst we are unaware of what brought the servers down, we are monitoring the situation to try to ensure our services aren’t brought down again.

We’ll also keep you updated with our investigations into what caused the server crash.

The total downtime was approximately 20 minutes, and during this time the following sites were affected:

Noble Samurai’s main page
Market Samurai’s main page
Domain Samurai’s main page
Market Samurai’s back end data servers

If you attempted to use Market Samurai or Domain Samurai during this time, you would have experienced timeouts and no data would have been retrieved.

Now that our services have been restored, if you retry your analysis all data should be successfully returned.

We apologize for the inconvenience cause.

Warm Regards,

Alex Green

  1. Didn’t notice it. But then again, I didn’t use Market Samurai today. It’s really great to see you guys come out and say, “Hey, our servers went down today, and we brought them back up.”

    More companies should be up-front like you guys.

    I agree. :) Most companies probably don’t bother, and there’s a lot of chaos…
