During the last hour or so, searching on Meta Stack Exchange can be very slow; searching only on a tag still works as normal, probably because it automatically redirects to e.g. https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/discussion which is not a search page. Sometimes it doesn't even give results:

    Hmm, I noticed but thought it was me. I have the impression search won't start and you need to click search again to get results.

    The same happened on SO around 9:00 UTC.

We had some problems during a patching cycle earlier today which affected our tag engine (serving /tagged pages). We gave the affected servers a swift kick in the right place earlier today and they're back serving requests again. Apologies for the inconvenience!
