API API high latency post-mortem
(Thursday 9th March 2017 11:14:00 UTC)

High API latency for a duration of approximately 5 minutes was caused by a burst of requests to our API which required more RAM than anticipated. No requests were dropped, API latency is back to normal ranges.

The API servers' memory has been increased substantially to prevent this from happening again in the future.
