In an effort to provide Bullhorn customers with maximum visibility into our system, we have updated the Bullhorn Status Site with two powerful new features: server cluster-specific visibility and real-time alerts.
Server Cluster-Specific Visibility
As Bullhorn grows to support tens of thousands of users all over the world, it’s important that our infrastructure scale well in order to continue delivering reliable service and quick responses. One way we do this is by running clusters of servers that function independently. That way, potential performance issues can be completely isolated. With our latest updates to the Bullhorn Status Site, you can now get an in-depth look into the status of the specific server cluster you’re on, allowing you to see if there are any issues with your cluster or within your geographic region.
To determine what server cluster you’re on, just log in to Bullhorn and look at the beginning of the URL. If, for example, it says CLS4.bullhornstaffing.com, you are in the CLS4 server cluster, or cluster 4. You can view the status of that server cluster by going to status.bullhorn.com and clicking on “CLS4_status.”
In addition, the Bullhorn status page now features RSS feeds, allowing you to receive automatic alerts from the RSS reader of your choice if an issue arises on your server cluster. You can follow the RSS feed for all the servers at http://status.bullhorn.com/feed/9639. In the coming weeks, you’ll also be able to follow an RSS feed by server cluster and get status updates via Twitter.
