The Ticking Time Bomb of Observability Expectations
https://davidkcaudill.medium.com/the-ticking-time-bomb-of-observability-expectations-c49c3d17ada1

"It costs money to store logs, metrics, and traces. A hard reality that is seldom discussed is that it often costs much more than that data is worth."

Oof. I'm definitely guilty of this approach, mostly due to a fantastic VelocityConf session years ago from Etsy: if it moves, graph it; if it doesn't move, graph it anyway in case it starts moving

Today's #CitusCon video πŸ“Ί of the day is from the amazing PostgreSQL hacker (on the team at Microsoft) Melanie Plageman.

In this talk, you'll learn about IO observability & the new pg_stat_io feature for Postgres that Melanie contributed to PG16.

Melanie is a great explainer, trust me you'll like this talk!

I've been thinking a lot about learning in software development. It's central to everything we do, but it's so rare that anyone pays attention to that. At least in my experience. Sometimes people will talk about being a "learning organization." I didn't hear them talk about what that means or what it takes to accomplish.

We build complex systems. Part of being complex means that we literally cannot fully understand them, so we're always learning and relearning how they work. The easier we make that, the better. #observability and incidents are two of the best opportunities we have to learn.

You know, I say in my bio and #intro that I used to work in #tech, but I haven't really actually said very much about what that was aside from comments here and there on other people's toots. (Edit: oh, and boosts are appreciated but not requested of this.)

So, here's a brief summary: I worked on two things primarily in my former career. The first was observability (more traditionally known as monitoring) systems, and second was realtime stream processing systems. In both cases the systems were
BIG. Like, big. No, bigger.

The
#observability systems processed hundreds of millions of datapoints/second, and the stream processing systems did terabytes/second of data. They were both globally distributed with the core backends running on thousands of machines collecting data from fleets of millions of machines. Because of the scale of them, I used to joke that I didn't count in anything smaller than a petabyte, which was honestly more true than joke.

I did a lot of different things while working on them from core engineering (I'm even academically published despite never having attended college, which is quite point of pride for me even years later,) to product management for the user interfaces for them, to
#SRE type work.

As I find ways to talk about what I did more obliquely, I hope to muse on this stuff more because I still find it really cool to think about even though I've left the industry to make porn instead.

Consider logging. Henrik Bærbak Christensen removed logging from a REST endpoint and reduced energy usage by 11%.

On the other hand, it's a #sustainability-#observability tradeoff, because you don't want the logging you just removed to be the one that would help you diagnose a problem.

The recent trend of #observability vendors pushing the "We'll reduce your alerts by using AI" message is really annoying.

As an industry, we shouldn't be sending the same data, and having the same bad data, and using some generic machine learned algorithm decide what is important.

Helping people ask questions is what observability is about, understand their systems to make them better. Giving them better telemetry is 10x better than reducing alerts.
