Stop Your Database From Hating You With This One Weird Trick

Let’s not bury the lede here: we use Observability-Driven Development at Honeycomb to identify and prevent DB load issues. Like every online service, we experience this familiar cycle. This is not a bad thing! It’s a normal thing. Databases are easy to start with and do an excellent job of holding important data. There are many variations of this story and many ways to manage and deal with the growth, from caching to read replicas to sharding to separation of different types of data and so on.
