Some latency with Slack
From 11:37 AM PST to 11:48 AM PST on January 24, 2024, we experienced an unexpected amount of API calls to our servers that occurred within a short window of time. The volume of API calls resulted in some users experiencing latency loading channels and general difficulties connecting to Slack. We investigated the impact with a broad lens and began to observe signs of recovery around 12:09 PM PST.
During this time, we cautiously observed our health metrics to ensure our servers were accurately recovering. As a result of our thorough monitoring, there was a delay before we could confirm the issue was fully resolved. Our teams have also put in measures to help reduce the likelihood of this occurring again in the future.

Service wide connection issues
On January 24, 2024 from 5:40 AM PST to around 9:00 AM PST, a small number of users experienced issues connecting to Slack and running workflows.
A change to routing in our servers resulted in requests failing due to a lack of available resources. This change was rolled back and Slack returned to a normal state.
