As we’re building and running systems at Facebook, sometimes we encounter metastable failure states. These are problems that create conditions that prevent their own solutions. In gridlocked traffic, for example, cars that are blocking an intersection keep traffic from moving, but they can’t exit the intersection because they are stuck in traffic. This kind of failure ends only when there is an external intervention like a reduction in load or a ...
