Database Issues
Incident Report for Chargify
At 11:43am EST we experienced an outage of our primary database cluster. The cluster was unable to perform a safe automatic switchover and instead went into failsafe mode to protect the integrity of the data. After 31 minutes we were able to diagnose and restore connectivity to the database and the application was restored. We are working closely with our database vendor to diagnose the exact root cause of the error and to implement measure to ensure it doesn’t happen again. In the meantime our cluster is considered stable and we’ll keep watching it very closely.
