Network outage on Aug 14, 2019 (Resolved)

Affecting Server - US1 | Priority - High


US1 experienced a network outage for several hours due to an issue with the routing table of one of our network devices before it. The issue was caused by a subtle change to the way the TCP packets were handled at that network interface, causing huge packet loss, which translated to lost connectivity to the server.

We worked with our datacenter network engineers to locate and resolve the problem and connectivity was restored on Aug 15, 2019, at 08:55 UTC. We have also taken extra precautions to prevent such issues in the future and we are working on improving the detection and early warning systems for such types of problems.
