Incident Report: 403 / 429 Errors for Some Users

npm is committed to providing a great experience to our users, and we’re continually working with our partners to improve uptime.

Some of our users unfortunately received 403/429 errors while using the site on Monday. Beginning on February 17, around 11:10 UTC, npm cli users began seeing 403 and 429 errors when attempting to access packages from the registry. We were first alerted to the problems by a combination of support tickets and monitoring aberrations. Our site reliability, support and engineering teams began investigating and declared an escalated incident at 11:28 UTC.

The incident was resolved by 13:00 UTC. We’ve got some more detailed info on our blog here.
