Load Shedding for Evil Wizards - Tony Allen, Unaffiliated

Feedback form is now closed.
Envoy has a number of different load shedding mechanisms available out-of-the-box. Circuit breaking, rate limiting, admission control, adaptive concurrency-- how do they work? When should you use them? How can they fail spectacularly? Let's find out!

This one's a deep-dive into the different load shedding mechanisms available in Envoy. Come watch Tony gush about how each one is implemented, the queuing/scheduling concepts behind them, and how they can fail to protect us from noisy-neighbor problems. He'll conclude with some experimental results based on his previous work on FBThrift and how we (as a community) can apply those ideas to improve Envoy.
