WDQS - Planning for disaster (significant failure of the project)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We know that WDQS is getting close to the scaling limits. While we want to make WDQS scale, we need to have a plan if we reach a significant road block and we’re not able to support the system at all.

Random notes that need to be organized into a concrete plan:

  • can we anticipate the failure modes?
  • list worst case scenarios
  • potential degraded modes
  • investigation of queries to understand impact of various degraded modes
  • we need to address both the technical side and the “business” side (how to influence our users and what they do, what we want to / can support)
