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.
