Oct-17 Scheduled downtime for server migration

Exciting times abound as we prepare to move our data processing and web serving infrastructure into Amazon’s EC2 Cloud. This move has become increasingly necessary with the substantial growth Wormly has seen in the past 18 months. Moving to the cloud allows us to offer a substantially more robust, higher availability system.

We will be performing the cut-over on Sunday October 17 at 11:30am (GMT+1100). We expect wormly.com will be unavailable for three hours during this period, which means you will not be able to modify monitoring configuration or view reports during this time.

Rest assured, though, that both uptime and server health monitoring will continue unaffected during this time. All data samples will be accrued and all alerts will be sent as normal.

We appreciate your patience during this time, and trust that the extra scalability and reliability that this move brings will be worth it.

If you have any queries at all, please don’t hesitate to contact our support desk.

Additional notes

The IP address used for health monitoring (inbounddata.wormly.com) will change from to This address will also become the source IP requesting the agent for Linux health monitoring installations.

The uptime monitoring node IPs will remain the same – an up to date list of monitoring node IPs can always be found here.

These can and will change over time, however, so we do not recommend creating IP-specific firewall rules for use with our service.
