Secure Web Gateway Points of Presence (PoPs) Counter

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.
