About

Twitch sometimes has "twitches" in its infrastructue, and they also don't have a quick response time to service outages. This page serves as a tool to unofficially check on service problems at Twitch.

Status Tracking

This site monitors the ingest servers, the chat servers, and the web services over at Twitch remotely. The statistics generated on this site will be gathered by a single server. I will attempt to provide accurate data measurements, but they could be inaccurate. Service statistics are updated every 60 seconds.

Web services are the front-end of the operation. The main website needs to be online to serve content to end users, and the API must be online for on-site features, third-party tools, and services to function properly.

Service Description Status Load Time

The ingest servers are relatively stable creatures. There may be hiccups within the datacenters at which these are hosted that are undetectable by this website, and it's for this reason that Twitch Status only checks if they are reachable.

Server Location Status

This section of the site pertains to Twitch's chat infrastructure. The chat system is quite delicate and breaks easily. A graph directly below tracks the number of chat lines being sent every second in the top 5,000 channels on Twitch. A table below also tracks chat status based on server IP and port. When Twitch is having issues, you'll see how badly the issue extends on the realtime graph. Note that while a chat server may state it's online during an interruption of service, it may not work for you. There are multiple factors that cause chat interruptions for Twitch, and the extent of disruptions vary case by case.
