Some users may encounter issues trying to load Slack

Issue summary:

From 12:29 PM PDT to 1:15 PM PDT on May 2, 2024, an automated monitoring system detected a high level of failed requests and backend errors against one of our databases.

The failed requests and errors indicated that users may have experienced slowness or difficulty loading Slack.

We were able to trace the errors back to a specific database which showed erroneous responses to requests. We manually triggered a rerouting from the affected database to a backup database, which fixed the unhealthy error rate to normal and fixed any issues that user may have experienced during this time.
