Service restored

Posted by Taras Filatov on November 25, 2016

As of now the Shared cluster issues have been fixed and the system is mainly back to normal, including group chats functionality.

Only issue remaining is group chats will not automatically initiate push notification alerts to offline users. This is due to a change in architecture which we had to urgently implement.

Please bear with us until we restore this functionality.

Enterprise users were not affected by these issues.

We apologise for the inconveniences caused to the user of our shared plans, over years we have kept our uptime for all user tiers over 99.5% and this is a first time we experienced service failure for a prolonged period of time. We are committed to improving the stability of the service going forward.

Shared instance performance issue

Posted by Anton Dyachenko on November 24, 2016

Hi Shared instance account owners,

Unfortunately, QuickBlox Shared cluster (including Free, Advanced and PRO, but excluding Enterprise/Dedicated customers)

is experiencing issues due to high load and chain reaction with all customers trying to reconnect which causes further failures.

 

Tech Ops team has mitigated this partially by adding more instances and upgrading the infrastructure,

but some issues with Group Chats connectivity still persist and team works to completely resolve this.

 

Thanks for your understanding.

QuickBlox team
