Complete.

SigmaBot will generate an alert including the ping “!sre” (stalk if you want to) when icinga-miraheze quits. It will run a short status check to indicate whether icinga and meta is up.

A full status check can be run by SRE, me or Examknow using !status but it is long as it checks multiple services so only use if you have to.

@Paladox, @John: take note that I have not yet gotten the error when I have looked at the wiki myself so there is a possibility that this is a problem with the user's networking or other things on there end. That said there is also a strong possibility that the error is only happening at certain times. Sysadmins should also note that I am receiving an Rdbms error when I navigate to Special:Random. The exact error is as follows:
