Team Foundation Dogfood Stats – January

(Update - this didn't get sent to the main aggregate site when I first posted it)

Brian sent around the latest updates in our dogfood usage as of 1/10 - I've been swamped so it has taken me a while to get around to posting them. (I'm also trying to write a Team Foundation report to generate some of the charts - not all of the data is available in the warehouse by default so some of the charts aren't so easy to create).

This report represents a significant milestone. In the week covered we've had 517 distinct people use the dogfood server. This is the first time weve broken 500 and a new record by a pretty wide margin. Youll also notice a huge spike in checkins this week. This is due to a new team that have started dogfooding on the server who have been doing 3,131 checkins as part of a conversion process.

Another notable statistic is that the server availability is getting consistently better. We hit a low on 30-day availability in late November of around 92% (mostly due to Warehouse issues). Today our availability stands at:

  • 7-day: 99.66%
  • 30-day: 99.84%

Our recent numbers have taken a bit of a hit due to a problem with password resets and a couple of OTG OS patch induced outages. Overall the availability of the core TFS services is very high.
