DNS Outage Identified
Posted 44 minutes ago (August 17th, 2007 at 12:52 pm PST) by Dallas
We have identified a runaway process that has been erroneously eating domain DNS records and that has been killed. The missing DNS data is being restored as quickly as possible now so any domains still down should be restored in the next couple of hours. We have already pushed out new software with safeguards against this situation happening again. The network intermittence yesterday caused database connection problems which triggered a race condition in our code.
We will be checking all domains for missing DNS records and restoring all of them so there is no need to contact us to let us know your domain is down. We will update this site when we believe all domains should be working again.
Severity: High Resolved: No
