Downdetector only reports an incident when the number of problems (visa Mastercard Outage) reports is significantly higher than the typical volume for that time of day.

Downdetector is the world’s most popular platform for online service status information, attracting hundreds of millions of users who wish to understand the status of their internet connection, mobile network, online banking, gaming, entertainment, and other online services.

By analyzing tens of millions of monthly problem reports, Downdetector offers real-time status information for over 12,000 services across 47 websites representing 47 countries.

How Downdetector works

Downdetector collects status reports from a series of sources, including Twitter and reports submitted on our websites and mobile apps. Our system validates and analyzes these reports in real-time, allowing us to automatically detect outages and service disruptions in their very early stages.

A single person reporting a problem doesn’t constitute a large-scale outage. To make sure that outages are correctly represented, we calculate a baseline of typical problem reports for each company that we monitor.

By verifying that issues are affecting a large group of individuals, Downdetector only reports an outage when the number of reports is significantly higher than the baseline.

How Downdetector detects Visa Mastercard outage status

Downdetector monitors and analyzes signals from its own websites, social media platforms, and other sources around the web to automatically detect incidents and service disruptions.

Problem reports

Visa Mastercard Users can submit problem reports directly on a company status page on Downdetector, along with an indicator of the type of problem they are experiencing

Social media

Downdetector gathers data about the status of service through Twitter and uses sentiment analysis to detect issues for a given company and location.

Other sources

Downdetector also looks at other key indicators from across the web to determine if an extraordinary volume of users is having issues with a monitored company or service.

How Downdetector determines if there’s an incident

A small number of visa Mastercard users reporting a problem does not constitute a large-scale incident.

To make sure that incidents are correctly represented, Downdetector calculates a baseline volume of typical problem reports for each service monitored, based on the average number of reports for that given time of day, measured over the previous year.

Downdetector only reports an incident when the number of problem reports is significantly higher than the baseline.

Downdetector only accepts the first report for a specific company from a single user. Subsequent information about the issue is collected but is not counted as a new problem report.

How Downdetector geolocates Visa Mastercard Outage problem reports

When a Visa Mastercard user submits a problem report on Downdetector, the report is attributed to the user’s location and country. If a user submits a report for a local service on a different country’s website, the problem report is attributed to that service for the user’s actual location.

If the service is not monitored in that country, the information is collected and stored but not attributed as a report against the service for the other location.
