We continue to investigate Help Center and user search issues affecting customers in our east coast data center (pod 6).
During this incident customers experienced errors when using the search feature in Help Center. The incident began during a new deploy of the Help Center search service which resulted in an extremely high load on the client nodes. The changes were rolled back, additional client nodes added, and then the changes re-deployed without incident. While it was not clear exactly what item in the deploy caused the issue, adding more capacity allowed for successful deployment.
