Incidents/2020-01-27 app server latency
document status: final
External demand for an expensive MW API query, caused the MW API web servers to become overall slower to respond to other queries as well. Some of these queries became sufficiently slow as to trigger our execution timeout of 60 seconds. The Recommendation API service was partially unavailable for about 35-40 minutes as it uses the MW API for part of its work.
