The VIES report: August 2013

A few months ago we have started to monitor the up- and down-times of the VIES application (as explained in more details here). While VIES had its “ups and downs” in the past its performance has increased substantially in August.

There were a few hiccups in the beginning of the month (between 1 and 9 August), which have resulted in 14 down-times in a total downtime duration of 3 hours. All together the VIES page was running 99,60% of the time (and is as of 10 August 2013 up and running 100% of the time).


Similarly the average response time was a bit quirky in the beginning of the month, but as of 10 August it was good at approximately 840 ms.


This looks promising and leads to the conclusion, that the VIES application is finally being properly maintained. Let’s hope that we will be able to report a 100% up-time in September.
