Service is operating normally: [已解决] 实例不可用 |[已解決] 實例不可用 |[RESOLVED] Instance Unavailability

從 12:58 PM UTC+8 開始,我們遇到了影響 AP-EAST-1 區域的單一可用區域 (ape1-az2) 執行個體的連線能力和 EBS 儲存問題。問題的根本原因與 EC2 API 錯誤率的增加有關。恢復後的 EC2,並且在 5:45PM UTC+8之前,絕大多數受影響的執行個體已經復原。我們會繼續處理少數仍遇到問題的執行個體,並透過個人健康儀表板提供進一步的更新。問題已解決,服務正常運作。| Starting at 9:58 PM PDT, we experienced connectivity and EBS storage issues affecting instances in a single Availability Zone (ape1-az2) in the AP-EAST-1 Region. The root cause of the issue was related to Read more…

Service is operating normally: [已解決] API 錯誤率增加 | [已解决] API 错误率增加 | [RESOLVED] Increased API Error Rates

从 12:58 PM UTC+8 开始,在 AP-EAST-1 地区的一个可用区(ape1-az2)内,我们遇到了 EC2 APIs 的错误率增加、一些 EBS 卷的性能下降和 EC2 实例连接问题。该问题的根本原因是受影响的可用性区域内底层 EBS 存储服务器的性能下降。工程师采取了行动,缓解和解决 EBS 存储服务器性能下降的问题,从而解决了这个问题。在 03:45 PM UTC+8 性能下降的 EBS 卷开始恢复,到 03:58 PM UTC+8,绝大部分受影响的 EBS 卷已经恢复。我们继续在少数仍在经历性能下降的 EBS 卷上工作,并将通过个人健康仪表板或这些卷提供进一步的更新。所有的服务现在都在受影响的可用性区域内正常运行。这个问题已经得到解决,服务运行正常。| 從 12:58 PM UTC+8 開始,在 AP-EAST-1 地區的一個可用區(ape1-az2)內,我們遇到了 EC2 APIs 的錯誤率增加、一些 EBS 卷的性能下降和 EC2 實例連接問題。該問題的根本原因是受影響的可用性區域內底層 EBS 存儲服務器的性能下降。工程師採取了行動,緩解和解決 EBS 存儲服務器性能下降的問題,從而解決了這個問題。在 03:45 Read more…
