Update Issue Resolved:
RedShield Incident 28/07/105
Root cause analysis:
This morning (28/07/2015) some RedShield customers were experiencing slow connections for their web applications. This issue was related to systems in Auckland only and was detected by RedShield engineers at 7:38 AM who initiated an investigation.
The root cause was a previously unknown memory leak, exposed due to a system configuration change and causative application traffic.
The causative traffic was failed over to a secondary system, then migrated to a secondary datacenter to minimize impact to other customers at 10.40am.
The memory leak issue was escalated to the relevant vendor as a Priority 1 case.
We are awaiting permanent fixes from a third party vendor however no further customer impact is expected.
