Screen short showing error
Users unable to login in most cases, getting error 503 from varnish in return of the login form. If an incorrect password is entered, the form gracefully reloads. The issue seems quite widespread but is hard to reproduce: at least 5 users across 4 wikis.
For each affected user, the issue is often user account- and/or wiki-specific: sometimes a user is unable to access an increasingly large number of wikis; sometimes bypassing caches helps. No other pattern was detected.
Asked for some multi-week grep -c for action=submitlogin&type=login 503 errors in logs, requires shell user.
