Production Debugging for Microservices

Production Debugging for Microservices

Dec 4, 2020

Debugging in production can provide an opportunity to pinpoint bugs that might not be apparent in the development or staging stacks. In this whitepaper, we will discuss how to effectively debug in production.

Debugging microservices can be challenging. Microservices are designed to run independently with their own databases and logging, but this poses problems for developers when attempting to trace possible bugs in production. To add to this, some bugs don’t show up until the developer’s code is in production and are caused by infrastructure and environmental—rather than logic—issues.
