ORES had an intermittent outage from 1600 - 1940 UTC on June 13th. The issue was traced to scb1001.eqiad.wmnet.
- 1600 UTC: Errors rise for ORES (not noticed. no icinga pings)
- 1700 UTC: Deployment for Task T167223 begins
- 1715 UTC: During canary check, error rate is noted and Task T167819 is created with "Unbreak now"
- 1740 UTC: Problem is independent of deploy. The decision is made to continue with deploy.
- 1816 UTC: Ops is pulled in (mutante responds). Rollback of deploy is considered but rejected.
- 1828 UTC: Problem is narrowed down to scb1001 specifically. Logs show no errors despite intermittent 500s
- 1923 UTC: Mutante notes that pdf rendering is taking a lot of CPU and kills it
- 1940 UTC: Recovery confirmed.
- icinga didn't tell us about the issue
- for some reason, the error wasn't being written to app.log
- it looks like there was some conflict with resource usage WRT pdf rendering
- memory was very tight on SCB for the duration of the outage:
