A walk to remember: Debugging a distributed system failure

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Debugging distributed systems has a different set of complications than other fields in our industry. Each system may behave differently depending on the environment it's running in and this un-deterministic behavior makes the process more challenging. If the debugging happens on a production environment the risk increases and the nerves get to us.
This talk will walk you through the debugging process of an OpenStack cloud and the strategy used from a technical and non-technical perspective.

Debugging distributed systems has a different set of complications than other fields in our industry. Each system may behave differently depending on the environment it's running in and this undeterministic behavior makes the process more challenging. If the debugging happens on a production environment the risk increases and the nerves get to us.
The debugging process for a distributed system is hardly the same every time. Therefore, we need to have a toolsbelt ready to attack this issue from different fronts but we also need to be ready to backoff when we've gathered enough information to do a proper analysis.
This talk will walk you through the debugging process for an issue on an OpenStack deployment and the strategy used from a technical and non-technical perspective.
