Keynote of TestIstanbul 2023

SLO Math

This talk is an intermediate topic for practitioners who already know what a Service Level Objective (SLO) is and would like to learn how to set SLOs that reflect the expectations of your customers, given the complication that you likely don’t own your entire stack.
Attendees will gain understanding of the mathematics behind SLOs and the impact of changes in SLOs at the component level on the system’s overall SLO. This should empower them to make informed decisions when setting SLO expectations at various levels.
