Balanced Partial Outage Post Mortem - 2015-03-15
View gist:f07618417d1920f4e20e

Balanced experienced a partial outage that affected 25% of card processing transactions between 8:40AM and 9:42AM this morning due to a degraded machine which was not correctly removed from the load balancer.

The core of the issue was in our secure vault system, which handles storage and retrieval of sensitive card data. One of the machines stopped sending messages, which cause some requests to be queued up but not processed but our automated health checks did not flag the machine as unhealthy.

We found the root cause of the issue and have resolved the problem to ensure that it will not re-occur.

We're dedicated to providing high-quality support and a culture of openness during the migration process. If you continue to experience issues, please email us at support@balancedpayments.com or tweet at @balancedstatus.

SQS Latency Measuring
View README.md

SQS Latency testing

Run this from an ec2 instance in the us-west-1 region.

It will create two queues and feed messages into the first queue with a timestamp, this message will then be read and the difference between the message timestamp and the current time computed and pushed into a response queue. Reading these times will give you the latency between publishing to a queue and receiving the message.
