We are continuing to investigate an issue with Social Messaging on Agent Workspace that is resulting in delayed messages for customers. We will continue to update as more information becomes available.
21:29 UTC | 13:29 PT
We have rolled back a recent deploy that we believe is the root cause of the delayed messages for our customers on Agent Workspace and Social Messaging. We are seeing improvement in stability and will continue to monitor the situation.
Root Cause Analysis
This incident was caused by a recent deploy for Sunshine Conversations. The new deploy contained a race condition in one of its new features resulting in mishandled exception errors killing an application that handles part of the messaging process.
To fix this issue, our developers released a hot fix amending the behaviour and performed a restart of the service, after which backlogged messages were sent out and functionality returned to normal.
- We will reexamine our code base for any potentially similar patterns
- We will raise the rate limitations for our internal services
- Created additional monitoring for Social Communications.
