High Latency
Incident Report for Embedly
Everything has returned to normal. 2 bad things happened at once:

1. One of services that checks URLs against the safe browse index died. This is generally not a big deal as it's meant to quietly rebuild itself while traffic keeps humming along.

2. We saw a drastic change in traffic patterns. This made the first problem manifest into a big deal.

We have corrected the first problem and almost double capacity for the night.

Root cause found, latency is moving in the correct direction.
