Using serverless python scripts to increase efficiency for troubleshooting applications
Shashank Shekhar Tewari (~shashank_shekhar) |
The talk will aim to educate people on troubleshooting and how we can eventually automate this. 'Visual' grep is often time consuming and is prone to human errors - if we can offload this work to scripts and bots, we not only save time, we also prevent human errors from creeping in. For customers using an application, a tool like this would help in finding solutions to problems even before raising cases with the support team..
Some of the topics we'll cover are:
Basics of troubleshooting
- Log analysis of a typical application, like postfix
- Implementation of this in a serverless environment
- Creating an endpoint which can be contacted with a problem is found with the server
Basic knowledge of python.
