At approximately 10pm Eastern Time, we noticed unusual CPU spikes across many US-based Video Platform instances. Our first attempt to mitigate this by manually scaling the sub-system did not resolve the issue. Further investigation identified a code defect in a particular database query. A hotfix was implemented and deployed about 45 minutes late which has mitigated the issue. All instances are currently stable and we believe we have fully mitigated the situation. We will continue to monitor the situation.
