【Important】Scheduled maintenance in early August

Dear Mackerel users,

Thank you for your continued support. I’m id:sugiyama88, Mackerel’s project manager.

Thanks to all of you, Mackerel has grown a lot. And in order to prepare for even further leaps forward in the future, we have decided to schedule some maintenance. The main objective of this maintenance will be performance and feature expansions of the time series database.

At the time of scheduled maintenance, we will put maximum effort into minimizing the impact as much as possible. We are making this announcement in advance because users may be affected. Additionally, the maintenance is scheduled to be divided into two stages.

This is an important measure in order to be able to continually offer a better service and we thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
