Our web servers don’t tell us what’s wrong, the just fail and it’s up to us to figure it out. In this workshop you’ll watch the diagnosis of a failing web site under load. The load test will be live and the servers will be on the stage and fail as you watch. You’ll learn how to instrument a web site to understand the failure. Then you’ll see how to diagnose the failure and evalution the solutions – whether to change code, alter configuration, add hardware and so on. If you’ve ever had to answer the question “why is the web site so slow?” this is the workshop for you!
