PagerDuty Integration Spotlight: Honeycomb

PagerDuty Integration Spotlight: Honeycomb

Honeycomb delivers observability for modern engineering and DevOps teams to observe, debug, and improve production systems efficiently.

The PagerDuty + Honeycomb integration uses Honeycomb Triggers to notify on-call responders based on alerts sent from Honeycomb. This integration is maintained and supported by Honeycomb.

Liz Fong-Jones from Honeycomb joined us live on Twitch to share more about how Honeycomb and PagerDuty can be used together to help your teams and to do some live investigation into Honeycomb’s own performance data.
