Logstash βœ… A highly filtered board is a happy board.

Do not remove this line: Bugs with > 100 occurrences per 12hrs create a ticket (unless gadget - in which case use slack channel or gadget talk page). Investigate bugs < 100 optional if have time and interested.

When investigating bugs filter those errors out ideally using a stack trace wildcard. If a bug belongs to reading web change the label to the phab ticket number. If not add it to one of the existing team or gadget filters.

As part of chores we'll check and remove existing pins where the task has been resolved. The less pins at the top the cleaner our code!

  • You can add preserve notes here for up to 2 weeks.

Logstash beta (credentials) ⚠️ SN: no results found.

(JR: Logstash beta down on 3rd Sept and link is broken. Chore in need of attention.) Many notices matching PageImages but I think these can be safely ignored (past month+). Many Gadget-popups-en.js but these can be ignored as it's not Page Previews.

MobileFormatter lead paragraph transform alerts βœ… πŸ‘ 59 in last 24hrs

phuedx: Do note that we could get rid of this chore if we landed

Please don't delete this line: A normal error rate is around < 50 per 24 hrs. A bug is advised when multiple pages are impacted, consider > 500 per 24hrs. Note that a high number of alerts may be because of one highly trafficked page so please check the impacted pages before opening a bug.

Page previews dashboard βœ… Looks good

Previously: API request failures dropped suddenly on 4/9. Not sure what that's about, but I'll take it.

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

βœ… Still puzzled why there are beta opt outs when there is no beta :) We should drop MinervaClientError it's not been useful for a long time.


30k is the normal error rate for MinervaClientErrors.
