2 years, 11 months ago

Somehow I considered that 1 minute of idle time of on weekdays affects about 30 000 users in the afternoon. We constantly solve a problem of decrease in number of incidents and their duration. We can reduce quantity of problems the correct infrastructure, architecture of the application is a separate subject, we will not take it in attention yet. Let's talk better about how quickly to understand what occurs in our infrastructure. Here just we are also helped by monitoring.

In this article on the example of I will tell and I will show how to cover with monitoring all layers of infrastructure:
  • metrics client-side
  • metrics from frontends (nginx log)
  • network (that can be got from TCP)
  • application (log)
  • database metrics (postgresql in our case)

As we won against a twilight between testing and operation

2 years, 11 months ago
Some time ago we in HeadHunter found "a twilight zone" by transfer of the new version of the website from testing in operation. The insufficient attention to a difference between test and fighting infrastructure periodically led to falling of the website.

Выйти из сумрака

Old test stands considerably differed on the internal device from a working cluster. Init-scripts for start of services differed, files of a configuration on an arrangement and contents differed. Interaction of services among themselves happened without features of a fighting environment.

I will show logic of our solution which allowed to achieve qualitatively new results of testing.

This article continues my report on SQA Days-18.
