Root Cause Analysis
This incident was caused by a scheduled maintenance deployment of our Talk service provider, which caused an unexpected tear down of all existing connections. As reconnections were attempted, the backend services overloaded and in turn new connections were unable to reconnect.
To fix this issue, our service provider rolled back the change and scaled up resources to optimize the handling of the surge of reconnections.
- Review monitoring and add alerts for events that would have indicated this issue.
