Degraded Event Processing

Resolved
A change in upstream data has resulted in the processing pipeline becoming completely stuck. This is causing a large delay in logs being processed and available in the cluster.

A lack of visibility and logging verbosity in Logstash is causing troubles in identifying the offending events.

The current mitigation is to restart the processing nodes, this resolve the issue temporarily, but even so, they are currently unable to keep up with the current event ingres.

Kibana and Elasitcsearch are unaffected and will be available during the service outage. New event logs may not appear or will appear patchy while the processing nodes try to catch up with the bac...k log.
