The horror of having to enforce SLAs

time to read 1 min | 91 words

I am doing the NHibernate Course right now, and we go to the stage where everyone is tired and need some comic relief, at which point I decided to show them the true meaning of an SLA.

If you commit this without telling anyone, you get to have so much fun when the computer suddenly start screaming at those horribly inefficient pages.

I wonder how this works when hosted in the cloud :))

Ayende Rahien

Remco, You probably shouldn't push this to production

Remco Ros

ofcourse. most servers don't have soundcards. But if they do, I'd like to see the faces of the operation managers. ^-^

Remco, Imagine the SMS: "911 - the server is screaming again!"

I think http://quiss.tripod.com/sounds/beatshit.wav would be more appropriate

Jesper, Awesome, and agreed, but the scream has more power.

If you want to get the attention of the server manager, cmd /c echo ^G^G^G^G^G^G^G^G^G^G^G^G^G^G^G

Note that's CTRL+G, not caret-G. Let's be sure to get it right.
