Let’s catch up with what’s going wrong with Microsoft 365 suite service alert (Intune Degraded Performance) as flagged by Microsoft recently. In this post, we will go through what Microsoft has to say about Microsoft 365 Intune Degraded Performance Issue Azure Cosmos DB infrastructure.
Just now i.e. 7th of September Microsoft issued an advisory MO427469 related to the performance of multiple Microsoft 365 services and features that may be degraded for some users. One can experience problems in using any services of the Microsoft 365 suite.
As per Microsoft, there is a possibility that users will experience degraded performance with multiple features and services of Microsoft 365. Microsoft assigned this incident under Service Degradation status.
Microsoft stated that a section of Azure Cosmos DB infrastructure within Europe is not performing as expected. They are taking steps to reroute connections to alternate components so that the impact can be minimized. And services can be restored to normal.
This issue MO427469 is fixed – End Time: Wednesday, September 7, 2022, 5:21 PM UTC. Preliminary Root Cause – The confluence of multiple internal service operations caused an unexpected increase in traffic load for the affected Azure Cosmos DB. This pushed the cluster above the designed threshold, causing service issues for Microsoft 365 services hosted on the infrastructure.
