Browser tests Green as grass 🌳 JDrewniak (WMF) (talk) 20:55, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
Logstash ⚠️ "TypeError: m is undefined" is at 103 occurrences, but all on ptwiki coming from a single IP...

needs further monitoring to see if this increases.

Do not remove this line: Bugs with > 100 occurrences per 12hrs:

1) create a ticket (unless gadget - in which case use slack channel or gadget talk page).

2) Create a filter for the bug labeling the filter with the open ticket number if it belongs to.

3) If the bug does not belong to us, enable the filter by default and exclude it from the view. If the bug belongs to us, disable the filter.

Investigate bugs < 100 optional if have time and interested.

When investigating bugs filter those errors out ideally using a stack trace wildcard. If a bug belongs to reading web change the label to the phab ticket number. If not add it to one of the existing team or gadget filters.

As part of chores we'll check and remove existing pins where the task has been resolved. The less pins at the top the cleaner our code!

Logstash beta (credentials) Clean Jdlrobson (talk) 22:00, 31 March 2021 (UTC)
EventLogging validation errors ⚠️

Oh dear, "'.event.editCountBucket' should be string, '.event.editCountBucket' should be equal to one of the allowed values" at 38,555 errors trying to log to eventlogging_DesktopWebUIActionsTracking schema. Needs further attention.


No spikes, but most errors are caused by NavigationTiming properties like event.loadEventStart, .event.connectEnd, event.connectStart having weird values. Per, these can be filtered out but are a useful signal for browser developers.

Page previews dashboard Looks good Jdlrobson (talk) 00:08, 15 April 2021 (UTC)

generic dashboard

Spikes expected as of T72470

We stopped tracking Schema:DesktopWebUIActionsTracking events. Fixed by Sam. Please keep this here until we've confirmed events have returned after the train has rolled out.


Healthy levels again. The increase between 03/12 and 03/18 was due to an error in roll out, but it was expected following that roll out that we'd increase volume here.

mobile performance dashboard

LastVisualChange spike since March 30 for Obama and Facebook pages. Created . Reflows observed on both pages.


CSS and HTML size increasing on Barack Obama, but not affecting the load times.

lastVisualChange increase on production starting around Jan 16

Big jump in Facebook.js/facebook css total bytes starting Jan 8 (see T272530 )

lastVisualChange increase on beta/production mobile site on 10/19

lastVisualChange increase on beta cluster on Sep 16

A banner impacted performance in September

"[SCRATCH] Mobile backend response time / desktop backend response time" dropped by ~15% on June 17th.

Search performance dashboard Looks good

Previously Note this is a new dashboard that displays the results of synthetic tests (not measuring real users) and is based on the work from T251544 . These metrics currently measure Vue and Legacy search performance on frwiki.

Check talk pages Looks good - one question on search button length to follow up on OVasileva (WMF) (talk) 15:28, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
