Cloudflare outage: cloudflare fixes its outage

Cloudflare experienced an outage on Tuesday morning, according to its status page.

the outage seemed to impact a range of different sites, including Discord, Shopify, Grindr, Fitbit, and Peleton,

The company, which faced a similar outage in some parts of the world last week, didn’t disclose what caused the issue.

Users had also indicated that they were struggling to use Coinbase, Shopify, and League of Legends, according to DownDetector, a crowdsourced web monitoring tool that tracks outages.

With the scope and scale of Cloudflare's operations, when the firm's network goes down, the entire internet feels the impact.

"Users may experience errors or timeouts reaching Cloudflare's network or services. We will update this status page to clarify the scope of impact as we continue the investigation."

Cloudflare has described the situation as a "critical P0" incident – a situation loosely described as an urgent, first-priority problem.

By 8.20 am, Cloudflare said a fix has been rolled out and "we are monitoring the results." It appears that service has been restored to some websites 

Cloudflare has experienced similar issues in the past such as in July and August 2020. It’s not a good look for a company that advertises its services as a way to reduce downtime.
