Data systems are known for their complexity; they contain a vast number of features and configuration parameters to support different use cases. As no single data system can efficiently process all workload types, administrators face a daunting task:

  1. They must continuously monitor their systems for performance degradations and failures.
  2. When issues arise, they must rapidly comb through large debug log files and hundreds of exported system metrics to understand the problem's origin and fix it.
  3. They must deploy and monitor multiple data systems, each specialized for particular aspects of their overall workload.

In this talk, I show how to alleviate this administrator burden by bolting an intelligent monitoring and adaptivity framework onto existing data systems. This framework, Dendrite, extracts models of system behaviour with low-overhead from built-in debug logs, detects shifts in behaviour, and deploys customizable adaptations to respond to changes in client workloads. I will demonstrate Dendrite’s utility through practical case studies with popular data systems and empirical evaluation.
