One of our colleagues is planning a trip to Brazil. She discovered that the website of the Brazilian Consulate in Munich has been inaccessible the whole weekend (it works again by now).

Downtime of the week: The website of the Brazilian Consulate in Munich

While it was down, the German version ( showed only the header, and the links in there lead again to 403 error. In other words…, technically the server was up & running, but the website itself got somehow corrupted.

This was a major problem, given the amount of people seeking information on visas, due to the soon World Cup in Brazil.

PS: Dear reader, if you happen to work for the Brazilian Consulte and are responsible for your website uptime, just quote this blog post and will give you a discount for the first year. Not that you would need it, using web performance monitoring pays for itself many times over.
