Zapier is seeing widespread outages on:

    * Google Tasks
    * Google Drive
    * Google Calendar
Seems like Spreadsheets and Gmail are still chugging along fine though (though we've some Oauth issues).

Edit: looks like Tasks, Drive and Calendar are back as of about a minute ago! (~Wednesday, May 1, 2013 at 4:05 AM UTC)

Since you integrate with some many web services, have you ever considered publishing a dashboard of their statuses?

We have one internally, we've talked about opening it to the public (we'd have to scrub data a little better as it is). Would there be interest in this?

In a word, yes. We've looked at doing something similar for upstream telecom providers as we interconnect with so many of them. When someone drops a DS3 somewhere we know about it and folks in the industry would love access to that info.

I can tell you that I would love to have an API health Dashboard, and I'd love it even more if you made an API for it.

But then wouldn't you need an API Health Dashboard API heatlh dashboard?

Who monitors the monitoring systems?

Sup dawg, I heard you like monitoring dashboards, so I added a monitoring dashboard to your monitoring dashboards so you can monitor dashboards while you monitor dashboards!

You say that; but then you realize that a non empty set of nagios plugins monitor other monitoring systems...

Jeff Dean.

But then, what about if that goes down?

Segmentation Fault

Apps status dashboard is updated: http://www.google.com/appsstatus#hl=en&v=issue&ts=13...

"We're investigating reports of an issue with Admin control panel / API. We will provide more information shortly."

It now says:

"The problem with Admin control panel / API should be resolved. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and continued support. Please rest assured that system reliability is a top priority at Google, and we are making continuous improvements to make our systems better. Users were unable to use Google APIs, or were receiving errors when using Google APIs."

I see that http://api-status.com/ is accurately reporting problems in the Google APIs whereas the Google API console (https://code.google.com/apis/console/b/0) says there are no known issues.

You'll notice though in the Uptime and Performance History that most of the Google APIs have been marked as being down for the entirety of the last week, which indicates to me that the logic they are using to test the APIs may no longer be valid for some of them.

Good point!

Google Voice is down as well right now: https://twitter.com/search/realtime?q=Google%20voice&src...

I've been seeing intermittent problems with gv since last weekend.

All Google OAuth2 is down. I've confirmed that both Asana and Meldium (my app) are getting these 502s from Google.

Starting to get 200s now. Looks like they're back.

Confirmed. We're using Google Image Search via Oauth2 specifically.

My Drive app with Python client library is also returning 502's.

Breaks all Appengine apps that just use the oauth decorator...

Getting HTTP Status 200. They should be back online.

Same situation for us here, Google OAuth2 is down.

I am seeing similar problems with Google CalDAV.

I'm not sure if this is a joke or not.. or when they are actually shutting down the dav services.

Confirmed. My app is getting 502s.

So is the Google Site Search API.

youtube v3 api is down as well (502)
