Graceful degradation and managing failures in complex microservices are critical topics in modern application architecture. Failures are inevitable and can cause chaos and disruption. However, prioritized load shedding can help preserve critical user experiences and keep services healthy and responsive. This approach can prevent cascading failures and allow for critical services to remain functional, even when resources are scarce.
To help navigate this complex topic, Tanveer Gill, the CTO of FluxNinja, got the opportunity to give a talk at Chaos Carnival 2023 (March 15-16), which happened virtually, the sessions were pre-recorded. Though, attendees could interact with speakers since they were present all the time during the session.
