Our Engineering team will be continuing the previous maintenance here: https://status.digitalocean.com/incidents/0gl7pplrsd96
This is in order to reduce bottlenecks that limit network throughput and stability under certain user workloads on DigitalOcean Hypervisors.
We expect this effort to be ongoing from today, October 5, 2020, to October 15, 2020, and will be rolling out incrementally across our fleet. As of today, we are about 25% complete across our fleet.
There should be minimal downtime for Droplets on each affected hypervisor during the rollout. The expectation is that most users will not observe any impact, though some users with a sustained high-packets-per-second or high-throughput workload will see a small number of dropped packets.
Should users have questions about specific Droplets and this maintenance, we ask that they open a Support ticket within their account for assistance. Thank you for your patience throughout this process.
