Google Analytics Problems?

From where I'm sitting, Google Analytics has been down for several hours both yesterday and today. It is simply junking website access data rather than queuing it, so the stats for the day are completely out. Is this just a UK server issue, or are others experiencing the same thing? Check your Executive Overview for the past two days and look for long periods of flatlining.

Nothing wrong with my Google Analytics- no flat lines.

I had an eight hour flat line on Saturday. Friday was fine.

Google analytics always seems to be a day behind...

Thanks for the responses, guys.

I've asked Google and they have come back to say that there are occasional maintenance outages during which nothing is reported, but they don't lose the data and do repopulate the stats within 72 hours.

My historically oldest long outage was Saturday, so by tomorrow the data should be back. 7 hours seems like a bit of a long maintenance break to me.

Btw Scott, I usually see stats updates within 30 mins of an access and can check this by downloading myself from another user account.

I'll update everyone tomorrow on whether they restore the data.

Google has been true to their word. All data missing from last week has been filled in. So I no longer see anything wrong with Google Analytics. Thanks to everyone who responded to my query.
