Browser tests ✅ 🌴🌳🌲 GREEN GREEN GREEN \o/ (but note 2 of our daily jobs have been removed). If we remove tests, they can't fail! Build #320 failed due to some login issues. Jdlrobson (talk) 22:05, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
Logstash ✅ No recent errors trending.

There was a lot of noise so spent most of my time filtering out irrelevant noise (citoid, abuse filter). I also added Vector since we should now be watching that repo more closely.

  • Some reports of "Failed executing job: categoryMembershipChange" but not many lately.

Page previews dashboard ✅ API timing slowly climbed from ~80ms on 12/31 to 100ms 1/24.

Expanded default query to span 30days as it's easy to see anomalies. Previously:

p95 API response time, Median TTP, and p75 TTP doubled from 1/13 for a span of ~7 hours but then returned to normal

generic dashboard

⚠️ The Minerva client error rate is a little higher than normal (5-15K/min on average) since the deploy on the 9th Jan (before that 5-8k/min). Might relate to caching changes in drawer and menu changes so probably worth further investigation. Niedzielski (talk) 15:29, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
mobile performance dashboard ⚠️ BetaCluster CSS shot up 4KB on Jan 12 due to but that's now fixed.

Since 9  Jan speed index, fully loaded and first paint, visual complete, last visual change on Barack Obama page in production have worsened. Some even more so with the subsequent deploy. Could relate to main menu changes so created spike: T243105


1kb bump in CSS (likely due to the main menu changes). This seems to have increased first paint by 0.4s on 3G. Also seeming a bump in visual complete and speed index score. Too early to tell how this impacts NavigationTiming,

Speedindex 3G took a big hit on December 2. Fundraising campaign?

The graphs monitoring mobile Barack Obama have been a bit funky over the past month. Nothing alarming. A big spike in visual complete for the 99 percentile. A modest .1-.2kb increase in CSS was recorded on the 29th October.

All lines in right places but still unaccounted for regression in first paint ( I've documented on Notable incidents

Sept 27: Still the same performance regression noticed on 5th. No resolution and moving median suggests that it was a real regression. CSS/JS more or less the same.

Sept 9: Continuing to notice regression in lastVisualChange, etc. Seems related to below Sept 5: Big regression in first paint
