Sauce Labs Maintenance Windows for Sauce Labs
We are aware of and working to resolve intermittent WiFi connectivity and slowness issues affecting Android Real Devices in our US-West-1 data center. During a maintenance window on September 25, we made changes to our wireless infrastructure which has greatly improved the situation, but we are still monitoring and working on further improvements. Please contact our Support team should you wish to report any such issues.

Incident Report for Sauce Labs


Wednesday August 25, 2021 00:30 05:30  UTC

What happened:

Customers running tests on our US-West and EU-Central data centers were unable to start Sauce Connect tunnels. Customers running tests on existing tunnels were not impacted.

Why it happened:

A faulty script was used to clean up old tunnel images. This script inadvertently deleted empty folders on all images, including active images. Some of these empty folders were required for tunnel startup.

How we fixed it:

We deployed a new tunnel image. New tunnels are created with this image, while existing tunnels continue to run.

What are we doing to prevent it from happening again:

We are reviewing and replacing our process for deploying and updating tunnel images, and will ensure all use cases are documented and tested.

We have taken remedial action and tunnels are now starting as expected on all DC's. All services are fully operational.

We believe we've found what is causing tunnels to not start. We are working on a fix and expect to deploy a fix soon.
