The configuration update to reduce load and increase available resources was successful and production systems are back to normal. We'll continue to monitor while we complete our investigation.

We're currently deploying a config change which should mitigate this issue, while we continue to assess and correct the root cause. We'll update again once we've performed post-deploy checks.

We've just started seeing a couple of reports of intermittent slow project load issues and trouble updating stories. We now have system alerts and are investigating. We'll try measures to mitigate, to try and make sure you're unaffected while we work on this.
