Raw & Real Ep 7 The Tracing You Deserve So You Can Observe
Distributed tracing is key to building and operating reliable services that make your customers happy.
Traces pinpoint where failures occur and what causes poor performance. With tracing and observability, you can visualize the entire life cycle of service requests and discover hidden latency, errors, and optimization opportunities monitoring can’t show you.
So why doesn’t everybody do it?
Setting up tracing is notoriously difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. Honeycomb Instrumentation Engineer Paul Osman has the easy-breezy steps for you to get the tracing you deserve.
In this episode, Paul will show Kelly:
- How distributed tracing helps you uncover hidden problems
- That you don’t need dedicated infrastructure to collect traces
- The simple way to set up tracing with either Beelines or OpenTelemetry
