That's related to everything being restarted -- when the caches are cold, every page load has to hit the database, which increases the DB load, which can cause the webservers to time out waiting for a response from the DB. Mark and Robby are doing some more performance tweaks, and things will slowly improve over the next few hours as the caches warm up and more stuff gets put in them!
