RE: Random failures from Taiwan WPT instance
Hi Patrick, thanks for you input and the pcap suggestion!

Some things I forgot to mention / did not emphasise enough:

- the issues happen both for static and dynamic resources, I just used a static JSON URL for simplicity
- the IP from the WPT logs is which is the expected IP for the domain, resolved in the same way from everywhere (it's not geodistributed / not a CDN)
- the issue happens both for http and https requests with equal chance
- so far I only reproduced on WPT Taiwan instance, not others (that's a bit weird honestly)

My reasoning is: since the IP matches, and issue happens for HTTPS request, and there's no MitM etc. (hence the integrity is guaranteed, no third-party proxies messing with the output), the problem indeed must be on the server side (maybe some anti-bot solution as you mentioned).

This is an interesting run where the initial http request is fine (redirects to https) but https gets 503 response:
pcap is here:

I checked the PCAP for the https request and it looks like it contains the proper cert etc.

I will check with the devops again. Thanks!
