“We’re particularly keen on Grafana SLO. Recently one of our SLOs was tripped, and an alert was sent so we could quickly address it. Then 20 minutes later, we got a support ticket flagging the same issue. We were like, ‘yeah, we know; we fixed it already.’ Looking back, that’s exactly how Grafana SLO is supposed to work, and it was really perfect.”
