Similarly (and courtesy of Jeff Dean and Sean Quinlan), "The Joys of Real Hardware" lists the typical problems a new cluster will experience in its first year:
  • ~0.5 overheating (power down most machines in <5 mins, ~1-2 days to recover)
  • ~1 PDU failure (~500-1000 machines suddenly disappear, ~6 hours to come back)
  • ~1 rack-move (plenty of warning, ~500-1000 machines powered down, ~6 hours)
  • ~1 network rewiring (rolling ~5% of machines down over 2-day span)
  • ~20 rack failures (40-80 machines instantly disappear, 1-6 hours to get back)
  • ~5 racks go wonky (40-80 machines see 50% packet loss)
  • ~8 network maintenances (4 might cause ~30-minute random connectivity losses)
  • ~12 router reloads (takes out DNS and external vips for a couple minutes)
  • ~3 router failures (have to immediately pull traffic for an hour)
  • ~dozens of minor 30-second blips for dns
  • ~1000 individual machine failures
  • ~thousands of hard drive failures
in addition to "slow disks, bad memory, misconfigured machines, flaky machines, etc.".
