Discover Drexel was restored to regular operation for no specific location on Wednesday, July 01, 2015 at 12:27:36 AM. 100% CPU utilization on both web nodes
From AWS support site:
Between 5:25 PM and 6:07 PM PDT we experienced an Internet connectivity issue with a provider outside of our network which affected traffic from some end-user networks. The issue has been resolved and the service is operating normally.
The root cause of this issue was an external Internet service provider incorrectly accepting a set of routes for some AWS addresses from a third-party who inadvertently advertised these routes. Providers should normally reject these routes by policy, but in this case the routes were accepted and propagated to other ISPs affecting some end-user’s ability to access AWS resources. Once we identified the provider and third-party network, we took action to route traffic around this incorrect routing configuration. We have worked with this external Internet service provider to ensure that this does not reoccur.
Additionally, some customers have reported continued connectivity issues for some of their instances. We have seen with these reported issues that this has been caused by a leap second bug within the instance operating system, which results in 100% CPU utilization. We recommend rebooting the instance via the EC2 Management Console or API, or resetting the operating system time to resolve the issue.
