The Linode Status Page provides real-time system status and maintenance updates via email, SMS, and Atom and RSS feed. All Linode customers are encouraged to subscribe to Linode Status notifications to stay up to date with any events that may impact your service.

When you sign up for Linode status updates via email or SMS, you can fine-tune which service updates you receive. These different topic areas are referred to as components. If, for example, all your Linodes are restricted to the Newark Data Center, you may only wish to subscribe to the Newark component. You can also subscribe to individual incident notifications.
