At approximately 4:39 PM EDT on May 13, 2013, the DNS Manager service experienced an interruption, which caused authoritative DNS requests to time out. We have identified the cause as an assertion failure in ISC bind, the software that powers the DNS Manager authoritative name servers. Requests timed out for a period of about 8 minutes while the services recovered.
We are still investigating the root cause of the software assertion failure.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that this caused. If you have any questions regarding this incident, please contact Linode Support by opening a ticket in the Linode Manager, or give us a call at (855) 4-LINODE.
