Session: Open Source Observability Tools
The adoption of container native and cloud native development practices presents new operational challenges. Today’s microservice environments are polyglot, distributed, container-based, highly-scalable, and ephemeral. To understand your system, you need to be able to follow the life of a request across numerous components distributed in multiple environments. Without the proper tools it can feel impossible to determine a root cause of an issue. This requires a new approach to operations. We will review a series of open source observability tools for logging, monitoring, and tracing to help developers achieve operational excellence for running container-based workloads.
