Skill Metrics Offline?

I just noticed that the skill metrics page in the dev portal shows no usage of either of my skills for the last 22 hours. This is *radically* out of line with normal usage. So, either the skills are offline (though I can still invoke them), or skill metrics are offline. Has anyone else noticed this on their skill metrics? Steve

Just in case it wasn't clear in the original post, absolutely everything looks normal (logs, etc) on my end.

Just to add/confirm this is impacting myself (same timeframe) too; you're not alone Steve! Had a mini-panic this morning when I was in the portal, but my logs and external monitoring + alerting are reporting everything is working plus I've tested a couple of invocations just in case :)

Thanks, James. Good to hear (well, bad to hear...but you get the idea.) I was 99% sure it was just a monitoring thing, but it's good to get confirmation.

Ha ha. Same here. I went and checked my skills in a panic. (Most of them run through the same web service.) But, whew, looks like one of Amazon's pipes is broken. Speaking of which, I was messing with the Dynamo database I used for Starlanes. They have a feature where a change in the database can trigger a lambda function. They also have things where it can regularly dump data to S3. Pretty nifty. Right now I have to flush my logs manually. If things pick up it's nice to know that feature is there. Anyway. I suspect they are using something like this for their metrics. And just one of the pipes burst.

I think they broke again ~4 hours ago since 1600UTC / 0800PST, I've no plot points on either graph.
