All vector operations throwing ServiceException (503)

Hello, there! I am having an issue with vector operations on an index. The error I am receiving is:

ServiceException: (503)
Reason: Service Unavailable
HTTP response body: no healthy upstream

Example code that is throwing this error. The index exists and is shown as ‘ready’ in the pinecone web app.

import pinecone
pinecone.init(api_key="xxx", environment="us-west1-gcp")
index_list = pinecone.list_indexes()
index = pinecone.Index(index_list[0])

Any ideas on what might cause this?

Hi sflaviu,
It appears that a delete using metadata filter with a namespace that didn’t exist caused the issue. There is a fix coming however, engineering has patched your current index so it should be working now. Let us know if you have any other issues.
