Title: The great Cloudflare Incident of July 2
Post by: Chris Bergin on 07/02/2019 02:18 pm
So about 15 mins down, but so were 1000s of sites, including Discord etc. Cloudflare (DNS provider) had a major outage.

First down period we've had in a long time, but this wasn't our hamsters, it was out of our control.

All seems well now.

Indeed. 502's issued ray id of null and then wouldn't even try to issue one on reload. Glad it wasn't a more serious problem.

It was a big one. Millions of sites apparently!
