Monitoring: The Math Behind Bad Behavior

Speaker:  Theo Schlossnagle – Fulton, MD, United States
Topic(s):  Computational Theory, Algorithms and Mathematics


As we monitor more and more system we can quickly become overwhelmed with data. Large systems today can generate millions of measurements per second across millions of separate points of instrumentation. We’ve long surpassed human capacity of understanding the whole picture. Even with clever visualizations, the breadth of data is simply too much to reason about.

As our data feeds overflow our mental capabilities, we’re forced down one of two paths: explicitly collect less or implicitly surface interesting data. The latter is hard and requires a fair bit of math. In this presentation, I’ll talk about how we approach these numerical analysis problems and what you should and should not be able to expect.
