Improving the Pokémon GO player experience with PushGateway

February 03, 2023

PushGateway is used by Pokémon GO and other services, and is deployed on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). We are using Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Private-Service-Connect(PSC) to connect the different services. We worked with GCP support to determine the cause of some issues in traffic that we observed and there were times we observed issues in the traffic but couldn’t determine the cause on our system, which turned out to be caused by some events or issues on GCP. We were able to further improve the service reliability by working with Google’s support team to update several traffic settings of GKE and load balancer.
