At 05:30 UTC on 24 March 2022, Bonsai’s metrics database experienced node loss, which impacted metrics collection for a small percentage of clusters. Normally node loss is tolerable, and nodes are periodically replaced without incident. In this case, the node loss event affected replicated data as well. Affected users may see a gap in their metrics for the duration of the event.
This event only affected metrics collection; customers’ Elasticsearch clusters were not impacted and continued to function normally.
