We will take a look at some of the tools used for monitoring and issue diagnosis in a large scale PAAS hosting platform, and then take a look at how we can dig deeper to resolve performance issues using Blackfire.

Fantastic talk by Nick, some great information passed across. Very brave in doing the live demo (crazy ;) ). A great way of getting around the live demo is to use a video (then you can talk over it whilst not focusing on typing and screen switching)

I liked the helicopter graph! Also the xkcd chart.
Loved the real (recognisable!) examples of sudden high traffic.
I liked that you tied together the different monitoring screens to highlight the correlation between data.
As a front end dev... Sorry! ?
Great breakdown of profiling and I enjoyed the discussion on how people think about profiling (i.e. when people think it's not easyable enough).
I think it's just because I'm low on sleep, but the dark background made me a bit sleepy.
I liked the live demo, it was helpful seeing how the graph held you highlight possible pain points.
Thank you so much!

Really enjoyed the live demo. We will definitely be trying Backfire as a direct result!

Very well-structured and thought out talk from Nick, he clearly knows these tools very well. I especially enjoyed the visualisation and the live demo (extremely brave!)

It was a little hard to hear, more in the beginning I think

Nock rolled with the punches very well, the improved code being the wrong way round was quickly diagnosed and it didn't cause any issues.
