As of 01:30 and 01:55 PT, newsblur.com is down throwing 504s. Just posting here in case your nagios/cloudwatch/pingdom/etc. alerts haven’t caught it.
My alerts did catch it and emailed me, but an hour later resolved themselves. The second I woke up I saw that it was down. Not sure why, but I’m now in failure-mode trying to figure out why something broke. I have a lot of servers and they each have a failure once every 18 months, so with my 18 servers, I get about 1 failure a month. Ugh.
Getting 504s again.
No idea why. Just restarted the servers and all is well.
