    Switch from deep query to a trace waterfall view and spot outliers with Honeycomb BubbleUp heat-maps - these make debugging effortless and dare we say fun? The Observability that Honeycomb brings literally shifts a Dev team from guessing what the problem may be to knowing exactly how their complex prod is behaving and where in the code the issue lies. Through the experience of all users, dev teams learn faster when they work together and have the same visibility, down to the raw event. We affectionately call it See Prod in Hi-Res.

    In Honeycomb, achieve Team Collaboration through shared charts and boards, and follow the breadcrumbs from your teammates' experiences. With Query History, everyone sees results and can tag according to what’s interesting. It’s organized, intuitive, and easy to follow. Incident response and on-call run much more smoothly when everyone is virtually on-call with you.

    In this webinar, we’ll discuss and show how:

    * Honeycomb's Query History gives rich meaningful context
    * Honeycomb’ers dogfood and learn from each others' compound wisdom
    * Benefits span engineering cycles and use-cases when debugging and maintaining
    * To build a culture of observability and why you should do it now
  • BubbleUp: Ask Any New Question. Again & again. Recorded: May 27 2020 30 mins
    Michael Wilde, Kelly C. Gallamore
    When users of your services experience latency for specific features, why is finding the root cause so hard? You have many tools so why is finding the root cause so difficult? Too often, troubleshooting service latency just feels like guesswork and not progress.

    This shouldn’t be so hard. Honeycomb agrees.

    Running queries and getting results fast should be table stakes. Honeycomb’s unique BubbleUp feature visualizes outliers over baseline behavior, allowing you to investigate across services, ask novel questions, and drill down to the culprit of sub-optimal performance. Ask any question and get results fast, no matter how many fields, without writing new code.

    In this episode, we will show how BubbleUp helps surface anomalies to show unexpected behavior. Achieving observability like this has never been more accessible. Come join us live and ask us questions. It’s better with you there.
  • Honeycomb Learn Ep. 4: Bubble-Up to Spot Outliers in Production Recorded: May 14 2020 37 mins
    Danyel Fisher, Principal, Design Research, and Rachel "pie" Perkins, Wordsmith/Content
    The power of Honeycomb lies in the way you analyze production data using different interactive views. See what's happening across many dimensions (fields) in your system with BubbleUp. Pick the timeframe, breakdown by any field, such as customer name or ID, then filter by a specific dataset or where any errors occur. The query results are heatmap that highlight events over the baseline, over time.

    Use BubbleUp to select outliers on the heatmap and drill down to all related fields in that data. It will help you understand which part of the code is misbehaving.

    In this Episode of #HNYLearn, we will show:

    *how heatmaps illustrate added dimensionality
    *BubbleUp and Tracing views work side-by-side for even greater context
    *BubbleUp lets you drill down to see exactly where problems occur... blazing fast!

    See a Honeycomb product demo and learn the value of real-time analysis across system events to not only troubleshoot issues but also to understand how production is behaving right now.

  • Ep. 3 See The Trace? Discover Errors, Latency & More across Distributed Systems Recorded: May 7 2020 60 mins
    Molly Stamos, Customer Success Engineer and Ben Hartshorne, Senior Engineer
    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.

    We will dive into the importance of tracing when debugging, and show how Honeycomb Beelines fast-track instrumenting code. 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).

    Join this exciting session and discover the value of tracing. Spoiler: it's easier than you may think.

  • Tame Your Alerts! SLOs cut the noise & calm the team Recorded: Apr 29 2020 40 mins
    Kelly C. Gallamore, Michael Wilde
    How often are you woken up in the middle of the night for an issue that wasn't important? I bet you can tell stories on alerts that just weren't that critical.

    Honeycomb SLOs alert on what matters. You decide and configure specific SLOs for what is important to your users. See how Honeycomb uses SLOs to maintain a good user experience. We'll show you how to use Honeycomb's BubbleUp to find out exactly what is causing burn-down on a specific measure, e.g. latency & availability.

    Bring your coffee for this quick session with Wilde and Kelly to see a product demo on how we use SLOs at Honeycomb. Come ask questions! Useful for SRE’s, DevOps, Test Engineers, team leads, managers, and anyone on-call.

    Honeycomb Learn is a webcast series designed to educate DevOps teams about what observability is and how to get started. Observability-driven development is the ability to ask any question about your production systems so you better understand and debug when incidents occur. Teams ship code confidently, learn continuously, and spend more time innovating.

    Nathan LeClaire, Sales Engineer @honeycombio knows first-hand that the key to instrumenting code is to start with baby steps. With Honeycomb, a little instrumentation will give vast insights as soon as you ingest your data. With Honeycomb Beelines, we take the heavy lifting out of instrumenting.

    *why instrumentation helps you ship code faster and smarter
    *how to start small and get quick wins.
    *how to level-up your whole team with shared results

  • Honeycomb Presents: Framework for Observability Maturity Recorded: Jan 22 2020 60 mins
    Charity Majors, CTO & co-founder; Liz Fong-Jones, Developer Advocate
    Everyone is talking about "observability", but mapping out a game plan to get there has not yet been clearly defined. We have a great new starting point: Honeycomb’s observability experts, CTO and co-founder Charity Majors and developer advocate Liz Fong-Jones, recently combined their knowledge to create an initial framework that focuses on goals instead of tools for achieving observability. The framework asks orgs to honestly look at "how well are we doing?" in key areas that affect observability -- and ultimately customer and dev happiness.

    In this webinar, the authors of this framework will cover the importance of these 5 key areas for assessment, including:

    * Resilience in responding to system failures
    * Quality of code
    * Cadence of releasing code
    * Management of complexity and technical debt
    * Understanding user behavior


    The authors will also share their intent for the framework to be a living, evolving guidepost that incorporates input from the dev and engineering community over time. Attendees can learn how they can get involved and provide feedback too.
