Limited Capacity seats available

I am planning for four different blocks that cover, in my opinion, the most important aspects of capacity engineering:

1. Capacity 101: (50 minutes, 10 min break)
– goals of capacity engineering
– different methods of managing capacity in use today
– advantages and disadvantages of different approaches

2. Monitoring 101: (2 50 minute sessions, 10 min break with each)
– introduction to why monitoring matters
– war stories where monitoring either saved the day or lack of it cause disasters
– what should be the goals of good monitoring
– discussion of how we could go about accomplishing those goals

– discussion of what we did at FB
– describing three daemons running on all servers
– showing what can be built on top of these
– demonstration of diagnosing problems using these demons

3. Performance 101: (2 50 minute sessions, 10 min break with each)
– description of the performance space: terminology and usage
– what types of problems can be found
– what types of problems are most common/prevalent in code today

– performance testing (why it matters)
– discussion of tools for performance testing
– benchmarking done right

4. Putting it all together (2 50 minute sessions, second one completely interactive)
– you just got the first performance job, where do you start?
– how do you develop reasonable approaches for a place that never had capacity work done?
– learning from past approaches (history will teach you a lot!)
– understanding risks and safety buffers
– alternative approaches to handling “unused” capacity
– Q and A
