Honeycomb Learn Ep. 3: See The Trace? Discover Errors, Latency & More across Distributed Systems
Distributed systems bring complexity for developer and ops teams. When incidents occur in production, expected and unexpected, you want to pinpoint which part of the service is giving problems.
Distributed tracing illuminates distributed systems, making your logs easier to navigate. Quickly identify where there are errors or latency in your code or service, even within 3rd party services you use. Instrumentation is the key to the best tracing experience possible.
You will learn:
- the importance of tracing when debugging production along with other types of analysis
- how to debug by analyzing patterns and trends in the data generated by traces
- how to work with OpenCensus or OpenTracing (yes you can with Honeycomb)
