We are currently experiencing Performance Issues for some accounts on Pod 6. More updates to follow.
A large user import caused significant database performance issues due to each user being checked against an customer blacklist with a large number of entries, which lead to new user creations being significantly more expensive. The combination of high volume and expensive checking lead to high load on the database servers. Our developers worked to mitigate the impact of the import by rate limiting the instance and removing the blacklist. These two actions resolved the excessive load on the database and stabilized performance. To prevent this from happening again in the future, we will be introducing performance improvements to how we query customer blacklists during user imports, optimize partner user imports, and query db slaves instead of the master db.
