SLI, SLO, SLA -- What's the difference & what matters?
An SLI is a service-level indicator. It’s a way of expressing whether your system is succeeding at meeting your goals.
The SLO is the service level objective, which states how often the SLI must succeed over a given time period.
An SLA is a Service Level Agreement, which is a formal contract typically made with an (internal or external) customer regarding outcomes around delivery of the SLO.
With clear SLOs you make clear and accurate statements about the impact of both production incidents and development activities on your overall quality of service.
Honeycomb SLOs give you the ability to create unique SLIs that make up the total SLO budget for a particular timeframe. You proactively track exactly where you stand at any point and everyone knows.
