An unexpected Redis failure caused a partial outage of git.sr.ht
The git.sr.ht web service was partially interrupted today due to unexpected Redis errors. Some pages which rely on Redis for caching returned 500 errors, namely the summary and tree pages.
The issue has been resolved. To prevent its recurrence, we have filed a ticket to make our caching system more tolerant of Redis outages, and added an alarm to detect this kind of issue earlier. (12:07 — Jun 28)
