Question

Resizing not available

Yesterday, while testing out a new droplet, I tried to resize it and was told it resizing was temporarily not available:

“We are currently experiencing a large number of resize requests. Resizes for this region are currently disabled but will be re-enabled shortly and throughout the day to help spread the load.”

I was simply resizing for a benchmark, so I just deleted it and created a new larger droplet.

Today, I created a new droplet, added some data and realised it needed to be a bit bigger. Tried resizing and got the same message. I’ve no idea if it’s still broken from yesterday, or broken again.

Is there a status feed somewhere that mentions which core features are currently out of order, and when they might be fixed?

(just found something on Twitter: “once resize is enabled which will be very soon” - the last mention I could find, 8 hours ago).

We usually post all of our site updates to Twitter. That is currently the best way to find out about our status and new features.

I noticed that you added SSH keys to the API creation of a droplet. Before I mentioned that it would be nice to have additional information in the Blog or elsewhere so that we can easily “see” what is going on. I just happened to notice it. Do you have a release notes area, so I can learn about newly release features?
