Google Servers Overloaded
Google needs to add a couple more thousand servers on its racks. Been getting a lot of these 502 Server Errors lately. This time, it’s the Ad Manager I can’t access for several hours now.
Imagine if these crawls up into GMail or Google Search?
502 Service Temporarily Overloaded: Server congestion; too many connections; high traffic. Keep trying until the page loads.
Actually, there’s been several incidents when the Search service was down but it was for shorter periods (several minutes). There’ve been some isolated incidents before (like the time when several regions in Mindanao disconnected from Google and its services) but those were related to DNS issues than server overloads.
