General defintions

What is an Incident?

An incident is a technical issue that is serious enough to disturb a large majority of users of a service. It can be that a website is completly down or very slow to respond. The issues have to last for at least 10 minutes in order to be regarded as an incident and reported on this website. This is done to avoid reporting many small issues due to system restarts or casual external network issues.
