Production load testing (yes you read that right!) can be an excellent technique for building an extra buffer of safety around your SLOs. We will cover: - Using existing SLOs to prioritize the areas of the system to test - Using existing SLOs to run production load tests safely - Putting SLOs on the load tests themselves This talk draws on the author's experience of implementing production load testing for building a margin of safety around SLOs at a large international publisher.
