SLIs, SLAs, SLD’OHs! Learning About Service Uptime from Homer Simpson By: Mason Egger
Date: April 9, 2020, 6 p.m.

Building services is important, but what happens after they are built and running in production? How do we establish trust with our customers that our service will actually be available? Who creates these definitions and how do we measure them? Service Level Indicators (SLI), Agreements (SLA), and Objectives (SLO) are central to an operations mindset and foundational tools for effective Site Reliability Engineering. This talk will take you on a journey through Springfield as we discuss exactly what SLIs, SLAs, and SLOs are, how to measure them, what targets should be measured, how to define uptime, availability, and acceptable error rates, and what happens when they are breached. Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of how to monitor and report for their services, how SLIs, SLAs and SLOs can aid in this process, and how to implement them within their own teams.
