Event Loop: Insights and Analysis
About this course
The event loop holds many secrets. Over the last year we've been working to uncover what information the event loop can tell us about the overall health of a process without needing to observe any application-specific metrics.
By analyzing only the event loop we are able to understand the state of the process and calculate when it's necessary to scale.
This presentation will go into the inner workings of the event loop as it's being used, and how we can accomplish this along with the advantages of doing so.
