On Thursday, 29th October 2015, Easycallnow customers experienced intermittent issues which delayed user actions, including logging the disposition of outbound calls, which in turn limited the number of outbound calls that could be made. During this time alarms were received on the management systems for some servers, but the actions that caused these alarms was not initially clear. Forensic examination after the event showed that some servers were not correctly distributing the load to the underlying databases, and emergency maintenance was performed. Following the maintenance, neither the symptoms of the alarms have reoccurred and the service incident is now closed.
