Issues with search

Issue Summary:
On February 8, 2021 at 3:15 p.m. to 4:19 p.m. PST, some customers may have experienced intermittent search failures.

We determined that a recent change involving a new set of hosts for one of our services was the source of the issue. Our search infrastructure failed to redirect searches away from the now outdated hosts, resulting in the intermittent failures. After restarting the affected services and updating the host list, search began working as expected at about 4:19 p.m. PST.

We continued investigating to be sure we had a full understanding of the cause, and we called the all clear at 6:56 p.m. PST.

We have resolved the issue and restored full search functionality for all affected customers. Thanks again for your patience and understanding.
