Production load testing as a guardrail for SLOs
This short talks presents two main ideas:
- Pagers should only ever go off for SLO violations
- Production load testing is an incredible fitness function and a guardrail for your SLOs
Shift-Left Load Testing is a LIE (PurePerformance Podcast)
This conversation goes into more depth about why load testing is fundamentally different from other kinds of testing, and is best done in a production environment.
🏡 I live in Ireland. Before that I was in London for 6 years, and in Edinburgh for 11 years.
🌳 My hobbies include carving, surfing, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu. But with a toddler at home there's not much time for hobbies these days.
☕️ I'm always happy to meet new people and help others. Message me on @hveldstra on Twitter or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm also on LinkedIn.
