September SF Metrics Meetup

  • Sep 9, 2013 · 6:30 PM

The September SF Metrics Meetup features Jeff Weinstein from Groupon and Mikhail Panchenko from Opsmatic. Our generous host is Trulia. Arrive around 6:30pm to catch up with other quantifiers over food and drinks, talks start at 7:00pm. Space is limited, please RSVP.


Monitoring - it's not just for numbers

Mikhail Panchenko, Opsmatic

Much time and mindshare is dedicated to monitoring. Primarily monitoring is associated with looking at numbers over time and, if alerting is included under the monitoring umbrella, being alerted when those numbers don't behave the way we expect them to. However, only looking at numbers and service states leaves us with just the tip of the iceberg. We will look at how our alerts and numbers can be enhanced greatly by adding some context from non-numeric, and non-binary observations. We will fantasize about what our tools might look like if we tried to surround ourselves with helpful contextual information, as well as look at some concrete examples.


How can devops inspire business analysts, datas scientists, and executives

Jeff Weinstein, Groupon

Operations has created techniques for logging, monitoring, alerting, anomaly detection, and visualization. We’ve been able to measure and understand complex technical systems and help give order to production chaos. I’d like to discuss, question, and suggest how we can use these practices to better the other areas within our organizations, strengthen their relationship with operations, and challenge the way the business views devops.

    Hope everyone had a good time! Thanks again to Trulia for hosting.

    Missed connection: You wanted to know more about what we were using to build our back end; I was too busy trying to convert my slides to a PDF for the videographer.

    Great information, good meeting new people and wonderful location! (Thank you Trulia!) would have loved a bit more time to talk with attendees, either between presentations or in the beginning.

    Something has come up and now won't be able to leave South Bay early enough to make it. Darn, was really looking forward to this. Changed my RSVP so hope someone else can take my spot.
