Service Level Objectives with Alex Hidalgo
Alex Hidalgo & Adam Hawkins discuss the theory, practices, and the hard problems with service level objectives (SLOs).
Adam welcomes Alex Hidalgo to the show. Alex is the Principal Site Reliability Engineer at Nobl9 and author of Implementing Service Level Objectives.
Adam & Alex discuss the ins-and-outs of SLOs. It's assumed you are already familiar with the basic concepts of SLIs & SLOs so please listen to the previous episode (linked below) before listening to this conversation.
Some of the take-aways: run your SLOs for a least a month before you consider them ready and alerting on SLOs is a really hard problem! Lots of great pro-tips in this episode.
