Yesterday, during a routine platform deployment, there was a brief period of increased error rates between 15:10 and 15:25. This was due to the way our deployment code updates firewall rules.
At 15:30, the error rates ceased and an impact assessment confirmed that none of our services were affected by these errors.
At 22:52, we were alerted to a very brief degradation in our network connectivity. In spite of this being within operational expectations, as a precaution we decided to escalate our platform monitoring. We completed this extra monitoring phase at 10am this morning and found no further occurrences during or since.
We have reviewed the code and process for updating firewall rules to avoid future occurrences of this problem.
