Root cause Analysis
This incident was caused by an issue at a local Content Delivery Network (CDN) point-of-presence (PoP) that serves Zendesk site assets to customers. A fiber path was disrupted which resulted in rerouted traffic and caused a degradation of service or intermittent connection.
The issue was resolved once our CDN provider had restored their fiber path.
We continue to implement additional alerting tools between Zendesk and our CDN provider to improve communication between our engineering teams to reduce impact duration.
