How is the "green" API status defined?

I’m intrigued. I couldn’t push a single request through for the last several hours, things time out after 10 minutes. Before that, my requests would take 3-6 minutes to complete. And yet the page shows the API status as happily green.

Is that what we should expect from “All Systems Operational” and a green color?

Given that they don’t have historical metric charts like other status pages I’m guessing it’s manual. Only shows an issue when someone at OpenAI goes in and changes it. So their team may be constantly fighting fires and don’t always remember/have the time/have the defined processes of when to change the status. Or they have a different threshold of what they consider an outage or severely degraded performance.

That’s what worries me :slightly_smiling_face:
