SLOs for Data-Intensive Services

Wednesday, 2 October, 2019 - 11:0011:30

Yoann Fouquet,


Designing and maintaining a search engine service can be challenging. One of the challenges is to set insightful SLOs where standard availability/latency SLOs do not fit. We will go through our journey towards defining a monitoring process for such services at, from ineffective availability/latency SLOs to the current setup and all its advantages; travelling in a world where providing accurate and consistent responses can be as important as availability.
