API API high latency post-mortem
(Wednesday 24th May 2017 13:31:00 UTC)

High API latency was caused by an unexpected burst of API requests that managed to surpass the capabilities our over-provisioned compute capacity. We have greatly increased the available API compute capacity and will be monitoring continuously to prevent a similar incident from happening in the future.

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