How we learned metric-driven-development the hard way

In order to keep quality high, and downtime low, we had to rethink our workflow, processes, and toolset.Previously we waited until we got feedback from our Customer Success team to notice major bugs or issues on production.In the worst case, customers noticed that one or more of our servers were failing before we found out.

Back to square one!

We introduced several processes and tools to start monitoring our systems.This allowed us to fix bugs before they were reported, and spin up more servers when usage was high.Additionally, it allowed us to develop with a different mindset, measuring performance impact, whilst allowing us to catch issues before releasing.Some of these tools are great. Some of them were a blessing! But there are also quite a few that didn’t match our needs.

This is a story about failing, and getting up again. About getting to know your users, but more importantly: how they use our product.This isn’t about the Holy Grail of bug squashing or how dev-ops should do their jobs, nor is it the answer to the ultimate question about Life, the Universe and Everything.We’d like to share the story of our (ongoing) quest to constantly improve our product, and inspire you to find a monitoring setup that works for you.

Be the master of your game: act instead of react.
