2016/10/29 outage postmortem

For those not familiar with the word “postmortem” in our context, it’s a report after a serious incident that explains the causes of the incident and comes up with ways to prevent such incidents in the future.

Background info: Dynalist was down from 12 AM to around 9:30 AM EDT on October 29, 2016. No data was lost.

We’ll update this blog post as we implement the measures mentioned in the postmortem.

We’re really, really sorry for the outage and the inconvenience it brought to those who tried to access Dynalist during the downtime, it’s totally our fault.
