API High API latency post-mortem
(Saturday 21st October 2017 11:55:00 UTC)

High API latency for a collective duration of approximately 10 minutes was caused by a routine database maintenance task 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.
