Bloated Chefs: A Tale of Gluttony, and the Path to Enlightenment
As your infrastructure grows and your recipes become more complex, you may suddenly find yourself with chef-client runs that take on the order of minutes to complete. With Chef being the primary mechanism for pushing critical fixes in many orgs, the amount of time it takes for the fleet to converge is of the utmost importance. Non-performant chef-client runs will impact both agility and your ability to scale, so keeping them lean can make a large impact in your operational capacity. You will hear tales of chef-client run duration horror, and how we at PagerDuty have brought our chef-client runs back to the land of ponies and rainbows.
