Incident Report for Hotjar

On April 22nd, 2020 at 12:57 PM UTC our engineers identified an issue with loading Recordings in the Hotjar Dashboard.

What happened?

A subset of our users was unable to access their Recordings from 12:57 PM UTC until 5:40 PM UTC when we deployed a fix that restored access to our Recording list for all users.

Why did this issue occur?

An unexpectedly large amount of requests were received from a small set of users and temporarily reduced the availability of our Recordings.

What will we do to prevent this from happening in the future?

We’re going to hold an internal Post-Mortem and will provide updates accordingly.
