Earlier this morning, Kiln On Demand started acting... odd. While pushes and pulls were working as expected, the website itself was very sluggish and occasionally timing out. After a lot of investigation, the bug was discovered and squashed.
While the bug itself was a Black Swan (see Joel's post for more explaination), I see a lot of opportunity to tighten up our monitoring infrastructure so that we might better identify the layers at fault.
If this incident got in your way today, please do get in touch so we can make it right.
