As many have noticed, we still have an issue in our code base that is causing intermittent downtimes. These downtimes are random in their occurrence but only last for approximately 20 seconds to a minute. Sometimes the site goes for hours without experiencing an issue and other times it hiccups multiple times in a short span. Fun huh?
We have played Whack-a-mole with high probability areas of the code with little success (though we have made improvements, so at least we have that going for us, which is nice).
This is us right now if you are wondering what we look like
It's time to bring out the big guns. Over the next weekish we will implement a logging framework to track execution of key areas of the code in an attempt to isolate this issue. In addition we will stress test certain areas. Along with these additions, we may let the site experience this issue for longer durations to get detailed debugging info from the processes.
This issue may take some time to find, so if we are not back in one week, send a search party.
As always, thank you Voat and apologies for the issue. Did anyone look at the Dev's resumes before hiring them? Seriously.
