During today's DC switchover, the WDQS lag checking/monitoring required manual adjustment: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/701927
I'm marking this as high priority because it ended up causing user impact as it affected bots that check the lag before editing.
On IRC @Gehel said that the long-term fix for this is T244590: [Epic] Rework the WDQS updater as an event driven application. How long-term are we looking at? Will that be in place for the switch back in ~1 month? Or do we also need a short term solution?
