Intermittent latency affecting next-item selection during adaptive testing in us-east-1
Incident Report for Learnosity
Postmortem

As of 21:00 UTC, Learnosity identified and corrected an issue causing intermittent latency affecting next-item selection during adaptive testing in us-east-1.

Learnosity isolated and restricted database optimization tasks that were causing intermittent degraded performance affecting adaptive endpoints. Elevated connections to the DB were reduced to normal operating levels, eliminating the unexpected latencies.

This issue has been resolved and a fix identified to prevent this from occurring again. Please contact Support if you have any additional questions.

Resolved
As of 21:00 UTC, we are have resolved the intermittent latency issue affecting next-item selection during adaptive testing in us-east-1.

Adaptive services continue to operate normally.

Learnosity Support and Systems Engineering teams will follow up with a post mortem once we have completed root cause analysis and finalized any next steps or preventative measures required.

Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
