Course content


Applying site reliability engineering principles to a service



1.1 Balance change, velocity, and reliability of the service:
  • Discover SLIs (availability, latency, etc.)
  • Define SLOs and understand SLAs
  • Agree to consequences of not meeting the error budget
  • Construct feedback loops to decide what to build next
  • Toil automation
1.2 Manage service life cycle:
  • Manage a service (e.g., introduce a new service, deploy it, maintain and retire it)
  • Plan for capacity (e.g., quotas and limits management)
1.3 Ensure healthy communication and collaboration for operations:
  • Prevent burnout (e.g., set up automation processes to prevent burnout)
  • Foster a learning culture
  • Foster a culture of blamelessness



Building and implementing CI/CD pipelines for a service



2.1 Design CI/CD pipelines:
  • Immutable artifacts with Container Registry
  • Artifact repositories with Container Registry
  • Deployment strategies with Cloud Build, Spinnaker
  • Deployment to hybrid and multi-cloud environments with Anthos, Spinnaker, Kubernetes
  • Artifact versioning strategy with Cloud Build, Container Registry
  • CI/CD pipeline triggers with Cloud Source Repositories, Cloud Build GitHub App, Cloud Pub/Sub
  • Testing a new version with Spinnaker
  • Configure deployment processes (e.g., approval flows)
2.2 Implement CI/CD pipelines:
  • CI with Cloud Build
  • CD with Cloud Build
  • Open source tooling (e.g. Jenkins, Spinnaker, GitLab, Concourse)
  • Auditing and tracing of deployments (e.g., CSR, Cloud Build, Cloud Audit Logs)
2.3 Manage configuration and secrets:
  • Secure storage methods
  • Secret rotation and config changes
2.4 Manage infrastructure as code:
  • Terraform / Cloud Deployment Manager
  • Infrastructure code versioning
  • Make infrastructure changes safer
  • Immutable architecture
2.5 Deploy CI/CD tooling:
  • Centralized tools vs. multiple tools (single vs multi-tenant)
  • Security of CI/CD tooling
2.6 Manage different development environments (e.g., staging, production, etc.):
  • Decide on the number of environments and their purpose
  • Create environments dynamically per feature branch with GKE, Cloud Deployment Manager
  • Local development environments with Docker, Cloud Code, Skaffold
2.7 Secure the deployment pipeline:
  • Vulnerability analysis with Container Registry
  • Binary Authorization
  • IAM policies per environment



Implementing service monitoring strategies



3.1 Manage application logs:
  • Collecting logs from Compute Engine, GKE with Stackdriver Logging, Fluentd
  • Collecting third-party and structured logs with Stackdriver Logging, Fluentd
  • Sending application logs directly to Stackdriver API with Stackdriver Logging
3.2 Manage application metrics with Stackdriver Monitoring:
  • Collecting metrics from Compute Engine
  • Collecting GKE/Kubernetes metrics
  • Use metric explorer for ad hoc metric analysis
3.3 Manage Stackdriver Monitoring platform:
  • Creating a monitoring dashboard
  • Filtering and sharing dashboards
  • Configure third-party alerting in Stackdriver Monitoring (i.e., PagerDuty, Slack, etc.)
  • Define alerting policies based on SLIs with Stackdriver Monitoring
  • Automate alerting policy definition with Cloud DM or Terraform
  • Implementing SLO monitoring and alerting with Stackdriver Monitoring
  • Understand Stackdriver Monitoring integrations (e.g., Grafana, BigQuery)
  • Using SIEM tools to analyze audit/flow logs (e.g., Splunk, Datadog)
  • Design Stackdriver Workspace strategy
3.4 Manage Stackdriver Logging platform:
  • Enabling data access logs (e.g., Cloud Audit Logs)
  • Enabling VPC flow logs
  • Viewing logs in the GCP Console
  • Using basic vs. advanced logging filters
  • Implementing logs-based metrics
  • Understanding the logging exclusion vs. logging export
  • Selecting the options for logging export
  • Implementing a project-level / org-level export
  • Viewing export logs in Cloud Storage and BigQuery
  • Sending logs to an external logging platform
3.5 Implement logging and monitoring access controls:
  • Set ACL to restrict access to audit logs with IAM, Stackdriver Logging
  • Set ACL to restrict export configuration with IAM, Stackdriver Logging
  • Set ACL to allow metric writing for custom metrics with IAM, Stackdriver Monitoring



Optimizing service performance



4.1 Identify service performance issues:
  • Evaluate and understand user impact (Stackdriver Service Monitoring for App Engine, Istio)
  • Utilize Stackdriver to identify cloud resource utilization
  • Utilize Stackdriver Trace/Profiler to profile performance characteristics
  • Interpret service mesh telemetry
  • Troubleshoot issues with the image/OS
  • Troubleshoot network issues (e.g., VPC flow logs, firewall logs, latency, view network details)
4.2 Debug application code:
  • Application instrumentation
  • Stackdriver Debugger
  • Stackdriver Logging
  • Stackdriver Trace
  • Debugging distributed applications
  • App Engine local development server
  • Stackdriver Error Reporting
  • Stackdriver Profiler
4.3 Optimize resource utilization:
  • Identify resource costs
  • Identify resource utilization levels
  • Develop plan to optimize areas of greatest cost or lowest utilization
  • Manage preemptible VMs
  • Work with committed-use discounts
  • TCO considerations
  • Consider network pricing



Managing service incidents



5.1 Coordinate roles and implement communication channels during a service incident:
  • Define roles (incident commander, communication lead, operations lead)
  • Handle requests for impact assessment
  • Provide regular status updates, internal and external
  • Record major changes in incident state (When mitigated? When all clear? etc.)
  • Establish communications channels (email, IRC, Hangouts, Slack, phone, etc.)
  • Scaling response team and delegation
  • Avoid exhaustion / burnout
  • Rotate / hand over roles
  • Manage stakeholder relationships
5.2 Investigate incident symptoms impacting users with Stackdriver IRM:
  • Identify probable causes of service failure
  • Evaluate symptoms against probable causes; rank probability of cause based on observed behavior
  • Perform investigation to isolate most likely actual cause
  • Identify alternatives to mitigate issue
5.3 Mitigate incident impact on users:
  • Roll back release
  • Drain / redirect traffic
  • Turn off experiment
  • Add capacity
5.4 Resolve issues (e.g., Cloud Build, Jenkins):
  • Code change / fix bug
  • Verify fix
  • Declare all-clear
5.5 Document issue in a postmortem:
