Me: We've been experiencing intermittent issues from one of your services.

Tech: OK, we restarted the service. Is it working now?

Me: Yes, it's working, but it's been intermittent, so we don't know if it's fixed.

Tech: OK.

5 minutes later....

Tech: Is it fixed?

Me: Well, it's working, but it's only been five minutes so we don't know if it's fixed.

Tech: OK.

5 minutes later.....

Tech: Is this issue resolved?

Me: ......

Tech: ...okay, but is it working now? :ablobcatattention:

@RyuKurisu In case anybody is interested, the answer is "No", the issue was not resolved.

@mike @RyuKurisu Alas, it seldom is with a restart, in my experience -- (with the exception of memory leaks and preventive cron scheduled restarts :-P (it is so good to not have to deal with this kind of error handling anymore))
