Around 2018-02-22 21:00 UTC, wdqs1004 loss network access. A reboot fixed the issue, but it crashed again shortly after. The server has been depooled pending further investigations.

2 short spikes in HTTP 5xx rate can be seen on grafana, but the failover seemed to have work well and we had minimal user facing impact.

This looks like a hardware issue, we will investigate and follow up.


  • Investigation is tracked on phab:T188045.
  • Note that the LDF service had to be re-routed to another node manually. This is a known issue, tracked as phab:T161240.
