« on: June 21, 2017, 12:22:34 AM »
I have found out the last 20 hours or so that DUB ATC has been unavailable? Any particular reason

Feeds can go down for minutes to days, much of the time due to reasons beyond our control. 

We monitor all feeds with our 24/7 network monitoring system - so LiveATC and remote receiver (feed) volunteers get notified right away when a feed is down.  Likewise, when the feeds are running on LiveATC-deployed field equipment, we get notified and try to take action as quickly as we are able.

When it looks like outages are going to exist for more than a few days we try to post about them in our Feed Outages Forum (http://www.liveatc.net/forums/feed-outagestatus-reports/) and/or on our Twitter feed (http://twitter.com/liveatc).

Volunteers (and LiveATC, for the many feeds we run) work hard to get feeds back online as soon as feasible.  Sometimes that can take a while, depending on the nature of the failure.  Internet and power outages occur - not all feeds are located in areas with solid internet access.  So sometimes we all have to be patient as these and other technical issues get worked out.

Thanks for your understanding.
