Incident report published. The second announcement has been deleted, as it was in reality one incident.
The root cause was an error in deployment configuration resulting in the update rate for Printix Client not being adjusted down to the correct level.
The update rate was subsequently reduced to 1% to stop Printix Clients requesting updated software. This addressed the cause of the incident but not the demand that had already been triggered. Additional storage, server and CPU capacity was added to the Printix Cloud to allow all outstanding connection requests to be appropriately handled and for the service to be stabilized. Changes were also made to throttling within the Printix Cloud.
- Updating release management process.
- Default values will be re-evaluated to reduce the chance of a similar error in the future.
- Additional monitoring and alerting will be added to provide greater insight to service quality.
- Automatic scaling will be developed to speed adjustment to future increases in demand.
- Additional throttling logic will be added to better manage high demand.
