The prolonged slump in social media may have cost Facebook up to $ 100 million in revenue. So flat out, the company’s engineers set about finding and fixing the problem.

Turns out there is no culprit to point to. It was an “engineering error of our own making,” Facebook said Tuesday. Santosh Janardhan, the company’s vice president of infrastructure, explained that the massive disruption to its platforms occurred when Facebook engineers performed “routine maintenance” work.

What began as a test turned into a series of unfortunate events. Initially, the engineers were “intended to assess the availability of global backbone capacity, which inadvertently cut off all connections on our backbone, effectively disconnecting Facebook’s data centers globally,” Janardhan explained.

Then a system tool used to detect the error before generating interrupts did not work due to another error. “This change caused a complete disconnection of our server connections between our data centers and the Internet. And that total loss of connection caused a second problem that made things worse, “he said.

As soon as the first error was registered, there were problems with Facebook’s DNS, which allows connecting domain names with the correct IP addresses so that people can navigate the pages they are looking for. NY Post.

After a similar problem earlier in the year, “the end result was that our DNS servers became unreachable even though they were still operational. This made it impossible for the rest of the Internet to find our servers, ”wrote Facebook’s vice president of infrastructure in the Company blog. “All of this happened very quickly.”

The bug also affected Facebook’s security systems, making it difficult for engineers to respond quickly. Even some employees in important areas were blocked.

Janardhan explained: “It was not possible to access our data centers through our normal means because their networks were down and secondly, the total loss of DNS broke many of the internal tools that we would normally use to investigate and resolve outages such as is”.

It took time to resume the service: More than 6 hours!

Facebook’s vice president of infrastructure acknowledged that it took them longer than expected to resume service. “So it took longer to activate the secure access protocols necessary for people to be on site and able to work on the servers,” he said.

“Only then could we confirm the problem and get our spine working again,” he explained. After solving the problem, the company took the foresight to progressively reactivate the systems to prevent them from failing again.
