API High API latency post-mortem
(Tuesday 18th April 2017 19:09:00 UTC)

High API latency for a collective duration of approximately 50 minutes was caused by a routine database cleanup that required more processing power than anticipated. We have taken measures to reduce the load this task places on the database to prevent this from happening again in the future.

API latency is back to normal. All API requests during this period have not been dropped or rejected.
