RESOLVED: SaaS disruption NL4C06 degraded performance
Incident Report for TOPdesk SaaS Status page

On June 26, 2024, beginning at approximately 09:30 CET, we started receiving customer reports of slow or unresponsive TOPdesk environments hosted on the NL4 datacenter, specifically within NL4 container 6. Concurrently, our monitoring system flagged issues with CPU on NL4.

In response to the customer reports and system warnings, our Cloud Engineers started an investigation. They identified the root cause as an overload of the host machine, resulting in the reported slowness.

By 11:30 CET, our team implemented a solution: a failover to a less busy host. This action resulted in immediate improvements in the SQL metrics, as noted by our monitoring system.

We are pleased to announce that the main issue was fully resolved by 11:42 CET. The overall performance degradation lasted approximately 2 hours and 12 minutes.

In light of this incident, we have begun an internal investigation aimed at reducing the load on the host machine to prevent similar issues from recurring.

We value your understanding and patience as we strive to offer a more reliable service.
