Is Adobe’s MXNA broken?

Am I the only one who has to manually ping the MXNA to get posts to appear? I only ask as I’d be interested to find out if anyone else is having issues. Maybe it is a geographic thing (I’m in the UK). I have noticed that sometimes the post appears some 12-18 hours after it is posted. I mailed Danny T at Adobe and he thought any issues had been resolved, unfortunately it doesn’t look like it.

It’s not a real issue, but it would be nice to be automated again :p

If you are having issues too feel free to pop a comment below.

[UPDATE 2007/07/30] It appears that MXNA is back to normal now and my posts are filtering through A-OK. So if you were, like me having issues. I’d suggest trying it again and seeing if it is operating as expected for you too.

  3. I don’t need to ping MXNA, I’m in the UK and it just works (within a few minutes most of the time).
    Have you checked your server logs to see if the MXNA spider (which has a distinctive user-agent) is triggering an error or something ? Could your RSS feed be corrupt (run it through a checker) ?

  6. My last three posts were not aggregated (Germany).

  7. I think there’s a regular scan, although with 1300 feeds, it sometimes takes awhile to check each site. Pinging the aggregator directly (either automatically or manually) likely remains the fastest way.

  8. Hi,

    yeah, MXNA is not getting our posts unless we ping it. I think this is happening already for two months. For example, feedz is all the time receiving my new posts and no need to ping it.

  10. JD, I fully understand. It was more a point of interest to see if others were having issues too. I don’t mind manually pinging the service, but I’d prefer to auto-pilot instead :D
