As of this evening, a new SYSTEM HEALTH page has been added to Twapper Keeper that provides our end users a way to see if the system is “healthy.”
This page provides visibility to the monitoring that is running in the back end to ensure that the numerous archiving / exporting processes are running smoothly. (These are the same monitors that are used to contact me if there are any system issues.)
You can also look back over 7 days by clicking on the history link on each monitor.
NOTE: While typically Twapper Keeper can “heal itself” by reaching back to find tweets in the Twitter Search cache as it continues to crawl, this does provide a glimpse into potential short term blips in the system that may result in missed tweets for a time period. However, if you see missed tweets I highly recommend “resetting the archive” to force a back search, and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you continue to see an issue.)
(This enhancement aligns with one of the enhancements outlined in the Ops / Infrastructure work product https://twapperkeeper.wordpress.com/2010/04/27/planned-ops-infrastructure-enhancements/ and is based upon a request from Martin Hawksey – https://twapperkeeper.wordpress.com/2010/04/19/user-enhancements-to-twapper-keeper/)
