Summary: Degradation in web application
Impact: Minor - The performance degradation on the application happened from Apr 23 20:34 (UTC) to Apr 23 20:55 (UTC).
The identified root cause of this degradation was an unexpected behavior in the structures that control the connections to our databases.
Detection and resolution:
The issue was detected by our internal monitoring system that triggered an alert and informed the team.
After the root cause was identified, the structure was rebooted and the requests were sent and received normally.
Action plan: Preventive action items
Pipefy’s SRE team is already working on an improved structure that will provide a permanent solution and mitigate these issues. We will, however, contact the service that provides us with the structure that failed in order to identify what caused the situation.
