“While features of multiple services are impacted, some services have seen broader impact,” according to Amazon’s service health dashboard. The Amazon Web Services’ status page noted problems with Kinesis, which processes large streams of data, causing “increased error rates” for a number of websites.
“We continue to work towards recovery of the issue affecting the Kinesis Data Streams Api in the US-east-1 Region,” the notice said the issue appeared to be affecting the subsystem responsible for handling incoming requests. It said it has identified the root cause and is working on resolving the issue. The problem “has also affected our ability to post updates to the Service Health Dashboard,” Aws noted.
