    Do we have good measurement of our revenue?

    What kind of question is that? How long did it take you to come up with it?

    No we dont count our revenue. Once the company makes over a bil a year you can essentially shutdown all you data pipelines, sit back and relax. No need to count and there is a risk to overflow ints.

    How come the outage was so big that it took hours to resolve ? What messed up that could not be fixed quickly?
