6 months, 3 weeks ago At 14:45 UTC the TextRazor API experienced higher than usual processing latency and timeouts for a period of around 5 minutes due to a networking issue. This has now been resolved.
1 year ago No reported issues
1 year ago Due to a Database configuration issue TextRazor classification functionality was unavailable for approximately 5 minutes starting 22:25 GMT. This has now been resolved and analysis latencies are back at normal levels.
1 year, 2 months ago No reported issues

1 year, 5 months ago An bug in a recent TextRazor release is triggering performance issues when trying to analyze an unexpected input. This has resulted in sporadic timeouts and errors over the past 30 minutes. We've partially backed out the change, and are working on a patch.
1 year, 5 months ago Investigating disruption to the TextRazor API
1 year, 6 months ago At approximately 15:10 GMT TextRazor experienced processing delays and timeouts for some users due to a performance regression in a new release. This was rolled back and service fully restored immediately, service disruption lasted around 2-3 minutes. No further issues.

1 year, 6 months ago No reported issues
1 year, 6 months ago Due to a network connectivity issue TextRazor experienced processing delays and timeouts for several minutes starting around 8pm GMT. Our hosts have fixed the problem, processing times have returned to normal. We are continuing to monitor.
1 year, 6 months ago We are investigating increased latencies and dropped requests from the TextRazor API.
1 year, 6 months ago Access to the account management page has been restored, no further issues.
1 year, 6 months ago Due to an outage with our website host Heroku and AWS, some users are unable to access their account page and downloads. The TextRazor API is unaffected. Apologies for any inconvenience, if you have any account queries please contact support@textrazor.com and we would be happy to assist.
1 year, 8 months ago No reported issues
1 year, 8 months ago TextRazor was returning an error for some clients at approximately 8:20 UTC for several minutes. This was caused by a runaway process on one of our router nodes. To mitigate any impact he affected node was immediately removed from service, and has now been restored.
1 year, 10 months ago Due to a misconfigured load balancer the TextRazor API was returning errors sporadically until 11AM GMT. This has been resolved.
1 year, 11 months ago No further issues
1 year, 11 months ago We are continuing to monitor the global DNS situation. The TextRazor site and admin panel has been sporadically unavailable for several hours due to an outage with our host. This has largely been resolved, some errors are still occurring as DNS changes propogate. The TextRazor API remains fully available.
1 year, 11 months ago The TextRazor website and admin panel is currently unavailable due to ongoing issues with DNS resolution with our hosting provider. There is currently no impact to the API, which operates on a completely separate infrastructure. Please contact support@textrazor.com if you have any questions about your account while this is resolved.
2 years, 5 months ago A fix for the issue causing yesterday's disruption has been deployed and running without problems for the last 24 hours.
2 years, 5 months ago At approximately 03:35 UTC Today TextRazor was returning error messages and experiencing increased latencies for 10 minutes. We believe this was due to a combination of heavy load in the system and a performance bottleneck in our scaling logic. We have taken measures to increase capacity to handle the load while we confirm and release an emergency fix. We do not expect any further impact, but will continue to monitor the situation.
2 years, 6 months ago The TextRazor API has returned to normal. We had a few minutes of partial downtime caused by connectivity problems between our EC2 frontend machines. The issue has now been resolved.
2 years, 6 months ago We are currently investigating increased error rates.
2 years, 10 months ago We have migrated back to our main data centre, all systems are back to normal.
2 years, 10 months ago We have now been running smoothly in a backup datacentre for 50 minutes. Increased analysis latency and timeouts were caused by a fibre cut that resulted in our host's (OVH) entire datacentre going offline. We started a full migration to an alternative host when the details emerged. Unfortunately the migration ramp-up took longer than expected, meaning TextRazor was seeing performance degredation for up to two hours. We continue to monitor the situation, and apologize for any inconvenience caused.
2 years, 10 months ago We have started seeing increased latency and timeouts again - our host is still repairing their connection. In the mean time we are bringing up extra capacity at an alternative location.
2 years, 10 months ago Connectivity problems are ongoing due to a partial datacentre outage at our host. This has been traced to a cut fibre cable. We are continuing to monitor.
2 years, 10 months ago We are continuing to experience higher than usual request times, due to an issue with our host's datacentre.
2 years, 10 months ago We are investigating higher than usual request processing times.
2 years, 11 months ago At 14:31 UTC today TextRazor was returning 500 - Internal Server Error to a large proportion of requests for approximately 2 minutes. This was caused by a networking issue with our upstream provider, which has now been resolved. We do not expect any further disruption, but will continue to monitor.
2 years, 11 months ago At 15:31 today the TextRazor API was returning errors for all calls for several minutes. The system is currently back to normal, we are investigating the root cause.
3 years, 1 month ago No Reported Issues
3 years, 3 months ago TextRazor experienced higher than usual latencies and sporadic timeouts between 7:30 AM and 8:00 AM UTC Today. This was caused by a burst in load that our auto-scaling infrastructure took longer than usual to keep up with. The system has now returned to normal.
3 years, 3 months ago Performance has returned to normal following emergency repairs to our host's network.
3 years, 3 months ago Our host is experiencing datacentre-wide connectivity problems, causing higher latencies to all of our backend machines. We will update here as we get more information.

3 years, 7 months ago At approximately 13:00 GMT the TextRazor API was intermittently returning a 503 Service Unavailable message to high volume users for up to 5 minutes. This was caused by a configuration issue with our frontend Amazon Elastic Load Balancer, which has now been resolved.
3 years, 11 months ago No Reported Issues
3 years, 11 months ago A new issue affecting SSLv3, known as POODLE or CVE-2014-3566, was recently discovered. As a precaution we have disabled support for SSLv3 on our outer SSL termination layer (provided by Amazon's Elastic Load Balancer). Since most recent client-side SSL libraries use the modern TLS protocol that is unaffected by this issue, we believe there will be minimal impact from this change. Please contact support@textrazor.com if you are experiencing any problems with SSL connections to https://api.textrazor.com.
4 years, 1 month ago TextRazor experienced up to a minute of partial downtime at 16:50 UTC as one of our frontend machines lost network connectivity, we are investigating the root cause.
