We just finished dealing with an issue in our Chicago datacenter that was causing several other clusters to experience instability. Our “Ursa” cluster was taking on an extreme amount of traffic that looks to be, in large part, a bot attack.
This happened as a result of the “Ursa” cluster having a set of tools not running appropriately that detects and mitigates issues like this.
We’ve cleared this up and all sites are now back up and running appropriately.
