On Sunday 20th of September, from 10:00AM(UTC) to 15:30PM(UTC), our cloud platform provider experienced several issues. We expect little to no side effect. However, please keep this event in mind should you have noticed anything unusual about your iMacros sensors. Thank you for your understanding.

The AlertFox backend currently has problems performing transaction measurements. This is related to some performance degradation in our cloud, and our provider (Amazon) is currently working to fix this asap. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Update: Amazon confirmed everything is back to normal, and AF can resume full speed service. We expect little to
