The Programmatic Waterfall Mystery: Solved

A recent article on AdExchanger asks “In the supposedly super-efficient world of RTB, why would publishers continue to waterfall their demand sources?”. The article goes on to say that the publisher’s justification is “Because it works” but that “Any economist could tell you that this is a bad idea”.

War Story

Most of the data we use here at Datacratic is stored on Amazon’s S3 with the compute jobs running on EC2 instances accessing this data as needed. A few months ago, our operations team noticed that our Amazon bills were unusually high. After analysis, it turned out that the problem was a parameter in a configuration file that was causing our code to perform a large number of list operations. In the process of looking into the cause of the problem we discovered a very interesting thing about the price of an API call.
