Production Performance issues: 27th Jan GMT – current
Xero’s performance monitoring has indicated slowdowns within the Xero App. This will result in occasional but widespread slowness loading pages within Xero. The performance degradation appears to be related to load, with performance returning to normal after peak load times (9pm-5am GMT).
The Operations and Development teams are investigating this as our highest priority. We will continue to update this blog with more developments until performance is returned to normal. The next update will be at 8:30pm Weds 29th Jan GMT.
Our apologies for the delay in posting this notification. We have been actively working on a fix for the issue since noticing it yesterday and hoped to have it resolved this morning. This afternoon it became apparent that our initial fix had not worked and the issue may be on-going.
We acknowledge the frustration this may be causing for users, and thank you for your support while we pull out all the stops to get this fixed.
Performance Issues Update: 8:30pm Weds 29th Jan GMT
The team has been working overnight on the performance problem. We’re following several leads about what could be causing slowdowns in web page load times and we’re working closely with our technology partners for diagnostics.
At this point we do not have an ETA for a fix but will update with more progress by 12am Thurs 30th Jan GMT.
