API latency has resolved, this was entirely on us for pushing too fast on the migration. We'll slow it down and keep an eye on the latencies. Sorry for the trouble!

This is related to our ongoing migration away from Cassandra to Scylla, we were extracting data at too high a rate for the existing cluster during peak hours. We're slowing down the migration now and should see recovery very shortly.

We are aware of some general slowness to sending messages and other Discord operations, the team is online and investgating now.
