Public monitoring information and statistics are available for eduroam in South Africa on monitor.eduroam.ac.za. The current status is summarised by the icon on the right.
When there is a problem, a warning icon will also be overlaid onto the masthead logo on this site. Hovering over this icon or clicking on it will provide additional information.
As a courtesy, we also monitor the reachability of the various South African identity providers and make that information available at monitor.eduroam.ac.za.
The monitoring system tries to log in using a test account supplied by each institution, and reports as follow:
Login attempts happen via both South African roaming servers. In general, both should respond the same way — if responses are consistently different it likely indicates a misconfiguration.
Institutional administrators can update the monitoring account and contact details we use. Technical information on how this is implemented and what you can expect are available for those who are interested.
GÉANT monitor the status of the various national roaming operator and make that information available at monitor.eduroam.org. This tells you whether the eduroam infrastructure in various countries is operating properly, but doesn't give you any insight into individual sites or identity providers.
Institutional administrators can perform additional reachability tests via cat.eduroam.org.
