This is a very nice and informative bit of sleuthing through the Target crash. I thought it was particularly interesting how they changed the error code to a success, while in the waiting room. You are successfully waiting. This is a great example of why a workload model is critical before the release and must be then linked with a series of performance tests. It sounds like they could have used a goos Stress test on the system before the release. All key components of a comprehensive performance engineering strategy.
