PT, the company updated the status, indicating it had initiated a fix.

In addition, oytage Flexible Environment applications were unable to deploy new versions during this incident. Discussion threads can be closed at any time at our discretion. Tech Like Follow Follow.

App Engine creates new instances of manually-scaled applications by sending a startup request via the traffic appengnie to the server hosting the new instance.

The company also said it would provide a more detailed analysis of what happened after the investigation. I did meet with a couple of Google reps at their local offices before upgrading to gold and had some discussions about app engine with them but mostly abstract line of business talks. The cause of the issue is unclear, but problems began at Don’t show this again. For the first couple of years things worked fine, we had some issues to be sure e. In order to prevent a recurrence of this type of incident, we have added more traffic routing capacity in order to create more capacity buffer when draining servers in this region.

We know that you rely on our infrastructure to run your important workloads and that this incident does not meet our bar for reliability. This temporarily diminished the available router capacity. We will provide more information by I will take some uotage, mostly for picking app engine but not for this issue.


We will also change how applications are rescheduled so that the traffic routers are not called and also modify that the system’s retry behavior so that it cannot trigger this type of failure.

This causes overload in the remaining traffic routers, spreading to all App Engine datacenters. The server drain resulted in rescheduling of multiple instances of manually-scaled applications. They list an opaque item within the line items and no information about the actual source or a way to debug this at least not back in This morning we failed to live up to our promise, and Google App Engine applications experienced increased latencies and time-out errors.

The main goal for picking PaaS over IaaS is simplicity. During this incident, no application data was lost and application outagee was restored without any manual intervention by developers.

Your trust is important to us and we will continue to all we can to earn and keep that trust. We are still investigating the issue with App Engine apis being unavailable.

We will proactively issue credits to all paid applications for ten percent of their usage for the month of October to cover any SLA violations. Stay tuned for more information, and thanks for your patience outqge we investigate. Learn more about what’s posted on the dashboard in this FAQ.

Why (and How) we Left App Engine After it Almost Destroyed Us

As I wrote the original comment someone asked about AppScale. Some manually-scaled instances started up slowly, resulting in the App Engine system retrying the start appengine multiple times which caused a spike in CPU load on the traffic routers. I talked to Google’s human-sounding AI on the phone: PT Google said in another update that “the issue with Google App Engine should be resolved for some users and we expect a full resolution wppengine the near future. We apologize for this outage, and in particular for its duration and severity.


Google Cloud Platform Blog: About today’s App Engine outage

Check us out on Stack Overflow. Last week I saw this post which reminded me a lot of our experience with App Engine a few years ago.

We are experiencing an issue with App Engine apis being unavailable beginning at Thursday, For that we apologize. We are investigating reports of an issue with App Engine. We still liked app engine after that and we even did a talk at JavaOne where we discussed how helpful it has been for us to scale our business rapidly. Get updates Get updates. Although there was sufficient capacity in the system to handle the load, the appenglne routers did not appehgine recover due to retry behavior which amplified the volume of requests.
