An increment or decrement of the Points of Presence (PoPs) counter, more shortly referred to as PoP counter, is observed because of the following reasons:
Addition of a new Point of Presence (PoP)
Decommissioning of an existing PoP
- Replacement of an old PoP with a new to improve performance
A status site provides you with an overview of the globally distributed PoPs and their current health statuses, see Skyhigh Security Status.
A PoP is decommissioned if an equivalent is offered with improved performance for the same region. The replacement is usually a high-speed peering data center with a direct connection to an Internet exchange node.
Increment or decrement of the PoP counter is an expected behaviour and demands no specific action. Service degradation isn't expected.
