In my past experience as an SRE I’ve learned some valuable lessons about how to respond and learn from incidents. Declare and run retros for the small incidents. It's less stressful, and action items become much more actionable. Decrease the time it takes to analyze an incident. You'll remember more, and will learn more from the incident. Alert on pain felt by people — not computers. The only reason we declare incidents at all is because of the people on the other side of them.

“Mean time to X” is a common term used to describe how long, on average, a particular milestone takes to achieve in incident response. There’s mean time to detect, acknowledge, mitigate, etc. And then there’s the elusive “mean time to recover,” also known as “MTTR.” MTTR, a hotly debated acronym and concept, measures how long it takes to resolve an incident on average. The problem with MTTR, though, is that it doesn’t matter.

Utilize SRE best practices using FireHydrant’s incident response platform to organize, investigate, and remedy faster.

FireHydrant helps teams respond to service disruptions easily and effectively. By allowing teams to “rally the troops” with only a few clicks and assign incident roles to responders, responsibilities are quickly defined and allow people to focus on what matters: restoring service.

Organize, Investigate, Remedy and Prevent faster with FireHydrant:

  • Teams: Fill out your SRE roles and assign members to instantly delegate responsibility in an incident. Assign who owns what components to get the right people on the job.
  • Slack Integration: If you're using Slack, FireHydrant gets even better. Quickly open incidents, notify other channels, and assemble your team easily all without leaving Slack.
  • The Service Catalog: Keep a catalog of your environments and the things running in them with our service catalog feature. Make it easy to quickly find all of the gears of your product.
  • The Changelog: Fire's typically start when something changes. That's why we offer a one stop shop for you to log all of the change occuring in your stack.
  • Incident Logs: While you're fighting a fire, FireHydrant will transparently keep track of changes and Slack chat in your incident log automatically. You can easily filter notes and chat as well.
  • Post mortem: Easily access all prior incidents with fine grain filtering to help make actionable changes to keep your system robust.
