Increasing Deployment Safety with Metric Based Canaries

Brandon Leach, Sr Engineering Manager at Lookout, gave a talk at our Test in Production Meetup on Increasing Deployment Safety with Metric Based Canaries. “You can configure a canary to watch any metric you want, like here we're watching system metrics and application-based metrics. You can see we're watching for response codes, other application metrics, and other system-level metrics like memory utilization and CPU.” Watch Brandon’s talk to learn more about how Lookout moved towards continuous deployment using canaries in production.
