Full API Outage
Incident Report for Clerk.io
The issue has been resolved.

We had a cache server that crashed in a way where it received incoming requests but did not answer. This resulted in incoming requests queuing up and waiting for a response in the end creating a domino effect where no new requests could be received as everyone was waiting for the faulty cache server.

Normally such issues are detected automatically and faulty equipment is automatically taken out of production. We are looking into why this did not happen in this case and ensure that it will in the future.

We are sorry for the hiccup and hope you have a great day now that this has been resolved.
