Demystifying Distributed Applications for Observability

Demystifying Distributed Applications for Observability

Sep 20, 2019

In modern micro-service environments, it's no longer enough to just collect telemetry; there must be actionable insights derived from this data compiled in real-time. Kevin will talk about how the combination of distributed tracing, metrics, and logs has helped his start-up, Single Music, tackle the complexity of an event-driven micro-service app with only a handful of engineers on a stack orchestrated on Docker Swarm comprised of over 30 Spring Boot microservices. In this talk, we’ll discuss how we utilize Grafana, Prometheus, Instana, and logz.io to understand the health of our application and find problems before our customers do (most of the time).
