Runbook

From Wikitech-static
(Redirected from Runbooks)
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A runbook is a set of instructions for a human what to do. More specifically what to do when a certain monitoring alert triggers.

Prometheus alerting rules link to this page in a service-specific anchor based on the service name itself; from the service entry you can give more context, next actions, and link to other resources such as more runbooks, service dashboards, etc.

Pages that contain runbooks are linked from Icinga checks in puppet using the notes_url parameter, or alertmanager rules with the runbook annotation.

There is a Category:Runbooks for pages with runbooks.

Compare to cookbooks which are programs running in spicerack/cumin to do maintenance tasks.

service-name:port

This is the entry linked from generic alerts for service-name:port, for example ProbeDown will link here when network probes for service-name fail. See also bug T312947.
