Capacity Planning is a pretty difficult topic to wrap your head around and can seem almost impossible to start with. In this talk, I present the four basic steps to go from monitoring what you have to planning for the future. If you've found yourself woken up at 4 AM to expand nodes to meet demand, it's time to pull away from reactive actions and start proactive capacity planning.
The goal of the session is to:

  • Provide an approachable method for capacity planning right now.
  • Highlight concerns and considerations before starting your plan.
  • Explain how to enforce your plan after you've made it.
  • Explain when to re-evaluate your plans and reduce toil.
  • Recommend some methods for avoiding common pitfalls engineers/business folk fall into.
