Summary

In order to succeed, we understand that innovating to meet the needs of our loyal users is a must. And there's no better way to understand their POV outside of becoming a customer ourself! Hear from Shoreline Senior Director of Engineering, Haritha Gongalore, on how rewarding it is to use Shoreline Alarms and Actions to test and certify our own releases.

We use Shoreline Alarms and Actions in our release certification testing.

For example, we monitor memory usage of various subsystems, and when they breach a certain threshold, an alarm is raised.

A bot is then triggered and collects all the debugging information to record it for later analysis.

We find this to be a very effective technique at debugging spikes in memory usage.

It is very rewarding when you can use your own product to make it even better.
