In recent years an increasing amount of resources is invested in system observability, notification management and incident response. While these systems provide us with better visibility into our applications and shorten the time to mitigation, what happens when both suffer an outage? In this talk we will review the different ways we can find ourselves flying blind, what other systems and processes are likely to suffer a correlated failure, and what can we do about it.
