Spaces is currently timing out, intermittently

Hi - Is there an on-going SFO2 Spaces outage, or perhaps some sort of throttling (??) for requests? I don’t see any outages listed, but it’s behaving like a partial outage.

Issue: Requests to Spaces seem to suddenly start out for about 5 minutes. It will then work for about 10 minutes, and then start timing out again.

  • We’ve had no code launches or increased usage for weeks, and our site has only light usage. It seems to start and stop out of the blue, really making it sound like some sort of spaces outage. Our users in several locations (in the SF Bay Area) are reporting this.

Hi there @michaelbMantaRay,

I can see that there were some issues with spaces reported on the status page which have been resolved.

Are you still seeing the problem?


  • Hi Bobby,

    Thanks for your reply! We haven’t gotten any reports since Wednesday.

    Yeah there were some issues on the status page, but they didn’t seem related (and were for different regions), though perhaps I missed something.
