FDSN Server down and not providing data


I’m trying to fecht data from the FDSN server through ObsPy. Within your manual, you provide this URL as the main one:

  • Client('RASPISHAKE'), or the direct address Client('https://fdsnws.raspberryshakedata.com')

However this one is down as you can see in my attached screenshot.

Then I tried using the second option:

  • Client('http://data.raspberryshake.org') which is not down but is definitely not returning any data.
    I tried using my own ID " RA9CD" and also the one you provided as a working example in a previous ticket “R5B5C” but nothing is working. So its seems like a server issue. Here is my evidence code in case you want to check it.

Can you please help me check your server’s availability?

Here is the referenced ticket:

Thanks in advance.

Hello Abril7, and welcome to the community!

I’ve tested Client('http://data.raspberryshake.org'), and it seems to work for the most recent data. I’ve asked our server team to check why it would not retrieve your data.

Thank you also for sharing the code. As far as I can see, there is nothing wrong with it, and it’s a very clean one!

Apologies for this inconvenience. You can rest assured that we’ll see it solved.

Hello @Stormchaser

I tried again multiple times during yesterday and tomorrow and I get no response. No problem, I am attaching the the full code here in case you want to easily test yourselves.

Evidence of the response just a few minutes ago:

Full code:

test_shake.py (1.6 KB)

Thanks in advance.


Thank you for the new feedback and the full code.

The team told me that they are aware of this intermittent service (while we know that the data is available to be downloaded via FDSNWS) and are working to fix it.

Hello @Stormchaser

Just as an update, today, 10 minutes ago. I was trying to retrieve data again and 9/10 requests gave me data, which is great. I imagine you are doing some infrastructure updates, so just to let you know, it seems to be working.

Thanks a lot, I was able to get the data I needed.

Have a nice day.


Hello Abril7,

Thank you for confirming this. Yes, our team completed the final tests yesterday and I’m happy to report that the services are working fine with the new infrastructure in place.

You’re more than welcome. Have a nice day too!
