Orca: differential bug localization in large-scale services (acolyer.org)

This looks really neat and I’m left wondering: surely this can be used for more than large scale services.


End of the blog post:

> Though we describe Orca in the context of a large service and post-deployment bugs, we believe the techniques we have used also apply generically to many Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment pipelines.

So theoretically yes. Parts of the system rely on having a good monitoring/logging infrastructure in place and also on some organizational information, and if you have that available, your project might already fall under what most people consider "large scale".


I work in ad tech. The project is certainly "large scale", but 90% of the bugs are "CTR is down" or "CPM is down". Hard to see how this Orca could help in this context.


Ugh. Name conflict with Pony's GC.
