Root Cause Analysis
This incident was primarily caused by a defect that caused a message size limit to be exceeded in our internal event streaming service. A contributing factor in the incident was the failure of a retry mechanism to abort the message; instead, the message was retried and led to exhausted resource capacity in our infrastructure.
To fix this issue, our team identified the message size limit error during the incident and deployed a fix to the affected service.
- Prevent internal service messages from exceeding size limits [Completed]
- Improve error handling for the identified error events [Scheduled]
