The "load balancer" is the device that balances the total load of our connections across our three web servers. Each incoming request for content is automatically sent to the server with the "least load" to keep things running efficiently.
We've exceeded the capacity of our current load balancer, and it is indeed the cause of the errors we're seeing. I've started planning for the upgrade, and will let everyone know what kind of service interruptions we might expect.

Everyone has their expertise, which mod do you recommend informing?
