We’re in the process of upgrading
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T152015> the backend infrastructure that
powers the EventStreams service. When we switch EventStreams to the new
infrastructure <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T185225>, the ‘offsets’

Connected EventStreams SSE clients will reconnect and not be able to
automatically consume from the exact position in the stream where they left

messages in the stream. This means that connected clients will likely miss
any messages that occurred during the reconnect period. Hopefully this

This switch is scheduled to happen on June 5 2018, at around 17:30 UTC.
Let us know if you have any questions.
