There definitely is an issue with reported stats today. I looked at several sites with 3 or 4 minute delays and didn’t think too much of it. Most that I look at now have been refreshed with in a minute, two at the most.
My site appears to have become lost to the server because at this writing, I am 34 minutes since last data and 4 minutes away from the last check-in. Here is the tail of Piaware.out for the same period:

I am receiving MLAT positions and as the last two lines of the log shows, I am sending (lots) of messages up the line.
Can someone from the Flightaware staff give me (us) an update on the situation?
FYI, my site is 5089.
Also FYI, I did do a service piaware restart at about the 10 minute point of no data
(About 20 minutes after this was originally posted, the server started showing current updates. I calculate that I lost between 100 and 150 aircraft reports and 15,000 to 25,000 messages as this event occurred during one of the busiest times of the day.)
