The importance of community
Two weeks ago my dad passed out and was brought to the hospital. He had internal bleeding and when I got the message they didn’t know what was wrong. All they knew was he had lost a lot of blood.

I really good write up about an incident at Datadog and how they tracked it down. It’s full of unexpected places to find what seems like “normal” connection errors. Good for them for also putting in all of their false assumptions about what was causing the problems.
