TL;DR: The SRE Team at Stack Overflow is announcing 3 maintenance windows. No downtime is planned but the work is classified as “risky” therefore this announcement. The maintenance is expected to take 10-20 minutes and will happen sometime during the 2-hour window beginning at 8:30PM ET (01:30 UTC the next day).

The details: We will be reconfiguring some network hardware in attempt to diagnose and fix a performance issue. This should not cause a disruption, but lab tests have found evidence contrary to vendor pronouncements. In the lab we were able to remediate any problems in 10-30 minutes.
If there is an outage, we appreciate your patience.
