# Component Statuses

Unlike Incidents, Cachet starts listing Component statuses from 1. When creating or updating a component, you'll need to specify a status for it.

A status can be one of the following:

Status

Name

Description

`1`

Operational

The component is working.

`2`

Performance Issues

The component is experiencing some slowness.

`3`

Partial Outage

The component may not be working for everybody. This could be a geographical issue for example.

`4`

Major Outage

The component is not working for anybody.
