A recurring question that keeps arising in the DevOps community is, “how do you fix the many incidents that happen during or right after a release.” Fast detection of incidents and decrease the time spent on remediation. Rolling our new software can be overwhelming and has been suggested to be the cause of the majority of incidents at most companies. But while developers are working on new quick release cycles, the SRE focus is to ensure the stability and availability of your application.

I explained a little bit about the importance of Otel (OpenTelemetry) nowadays in the Observability world in another article I created: Observability Concepts Part 2. But is really important to show on a real example how to instrument an application sending the tracing to an APM backend. In this case, I will use the Instana APM tool to receive the tracing.

In a nutshell, observability allows you to understand the what, how, and why a malfunction occurs within your application by tracking and processing telemetry data. Gone are the days of monitoring what applications looked like weeks before a problem occurred. With the rise of observability, DevOps and SRE teams can observe their distributed system in real-time, allowing them to solve an issue before it affects a large portion of users.

Have you been involved in a software project that ran over budget and blew past every deadline? Of course, you have – we all have. In fact, if you haven’t, you are a unicorn and I would like to hear from you. Early in my software development career, I learned the importance of working backwards from a deadline. If a project must be done by a certain date and testing will take a certain amount of time, then we can use that information to work backwards and choose a due date for our project.
