Below you will find an internal WMDE presentation covering the general area of WMDE Metric & Data Gatherings from 2016.
This presentation follows on from the initial introduction to engineering analytics activities.
The presentation skims through:
- WMDE Grafana dashboards
- The Wikimedia Analytics landscape
- Grafana & graphite
- Hadoop, Kafka, Hive & Oozie
- EventLogging, Mysql replicas & MediaWiki logs
- Out Analytics scripts
- How to get access
On the 28th of January 2016 all Wikimedia MediaWiki APIs had 2 short outages. The outage is documented on Wikitech here.
The outage didn’t have much of an impact on most projects hosted by Wikimedia. However due to most Wikidata editing happening through the API, even when using the UI, the project basically stopped for roughly 30 minutes.
Interestingly there is an unusual increase in the edit rate 30 minutes after recovery.
I wonder if this is everything that would have happened in the gap?
This is an internal WMDE presentation given at the start of “metric driven development” for the WMDE & Wikidata dev teams.
The presentation is pretty bare bones but it provides a general overview of the plan and links to the current state of things.
The main area of interest from the presentation is the resources slide copied below for convenience.
I recently discovered the Wikimedia Grafana instance. After poking it for a little while here are some slightly interesting graphs that I managed to extract.
