USPTO server status at 8AM – maybe functioning again

Well, folks an hour ago at 7AM Eastern Time, the following systems were all unresponsive:

  • Patentcenter
  • EFS-Web
  • EFS-Web contingency
  • Private PAIR
  • TEAS

Now at 8AM Eastern Time, the following systems look like probably they are responsive:

  • Patentcenter
  • EFS-Web
  • Private PAIR
  • TEAS

Given which systems worked and which did not, I have some guesses what might have caused the massive outage.  I will post more in a few minutes.
