We would like to apologize for the recent incidents with the database cluster overloads.
We are not sure what is the root cause of these issues. We have doubled the capacity of the database cluster while we investigate. The normal database cluster's capacity was only at 50% utilization leaving plenty of room for traffic spikes.
We have elevated this investigation to our top priority. We will not reduce the database cluster capacity to normal levels until we have identified and corrected the cause of the overloads.
