What is a Severity 1 incident?

A Severity 1 incident is a situation where the application is essentially rendered useless and prevents all, or the majority, of users from accessing or using the application for its primary purpose.

 

Community - Severity 1 Definition 

At least 50% of users are experiencing one or more of the following problems:

  • Cannot access the production community
  • Cannot post anywhere on the production community
  • Cannot log in to the production community
  • Extreme slowness (several seconds or minutes) to load nearly any page on the production community
  • A major security risk or vulnerability

 

Note: Any of the same issues happening only on the stage community would not classify as a Severity 1 incident. In these situations, a normal Support ticket should be filed via the case portal or by emailing support@lithium.com.

 

Lithium Social Web - Severity 1 Definition 

  • No one can access or log in to Lithium Social Web
  • Data is not coming in to Lithium Social Web for any one of the standard social integrations, i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Lithium Community, or Google+
  • No agent is able to send responses out to any one of the standard social integrations, i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Lithium Community, or Google+
  • Extreme slowness (several seconds or minutes) to load or respond to nearly all conversations
  • A major security risk or vulnerability

 

Lithium Reach - Severity 1 Definition 

  • No one can access or log in to Lithium Reach
  • Extreme slowness (several seconds or minutes) to load or navigate the app
  • Send Immediately functionality is not working at all
  • A major security risk or vulnerability

 

Who do I contact if there's a Severity 1 incident? 

 

What information should I provide?  

When reporting and outage, to expedite turnaround time please provide the following: 

  • Brief description and steps to replicate the issue
  • Sample URL to where the issue can be seen (the home page is fine if no specific URL)

 

What is your Service Level Agreement (SLA) on Severity 1 incidents?

  • Support on severity 1 incidents is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including published holidays.

  • We guarantee a 15 minute initial response for Gold/Platinum Support and 30 minute initial response for Silver Support.
  • The most up-to-date SLA information can always be found at www.lithium.com/sla

 

Do you have a server status page to check for real-time updates?

  • Yes: http://status.lithium.com/
  • Note: Lithium monitors all of its critical services both internally and through 3rd party services. This page reports on known infrastructure wide incidents affecting Lithium platform. If you're experiencing an availability or a performance issue that isn't shown on that page, please report it to outage@lithium.com.

Hi Support Team,

 

Can we have a WebEx session to discus the severity 1 incident process?  Since our IT team will support Cisco's Help Zone in coming weeks, we like to know on how to contact you via email, paging or other maintenance activities.

 

Feel free to reach out to me for any questions.

 

Thanks
