Incident Report Summary

On 17 June 2024, a subset of our customers using Google Workspace products (Google Chat, Google Meet, Google Drive, Google Calendar, Google Cloud Directory and Google Docs) experienced elevated error rates and latency of varying impact between the period of 6 hours and 40 minutes between 09:06 and 15:46 US/Pacific.

To our Google Workspace customers who were impacted during this disruption, we sincerely apologize. This is not the level of quality and reliability we strive to offer you, and we are taking immediate steps to improve the platform’s performance and availability.

Root Cause

The root cause is a latent issue that caused contention in getting access in a cache used for profile information. The issue was masked by overprovisioned quotas for some of the tables and only surfaced when quota adjustments were made to match the traffic patterns.

Remediation and Prevention

Google engineers were alerted to the issue from our internal monitoring at 09:21 US/Pacific on 17 June 2024 and immediately started working on the incident. Once the nature and scope of the issue was identified, our engineers mitigated the issue by increasing quotas and disabling the suspected feature in the key/value serving system.

Google is committed preventing a repeat of this issue in the future and is completing the following actions :

  • Change the underlying design that caused the contention in the cache so that the issue does recur.
  • Implement mechanisms that facilitate quicker application of changes and detection of contention, to allow faster remediation.
  • Update Google Chat to be more resilient to profile information unavailability.
