Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Ep. 5: Never Alone On Call

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

    On-call teams use Honeycomb’s analytics to discover exactly what is happening with code in production. While incident response is a key reason engineers rely on Honeycomb, observability also delivers unique value during the development process. Eaze takes observability a step further and uses Honeycomb to prioritize what’s needed to stabilize their existing service while informing how they build their new Go and Node.js microservices platform all at the same time.

  • The Tarot of Future Telemetry, Help Your Future Self Recorded: Sep 16 2020 31 mins
    Kelly Gallamore, Liz Fong-Jones
    Honeycomb can help you find the needles in your haystack. But it helps when you make the needles more findable! Beyond automatic instrumentation, adding custom telemetry to your events means thinking about how that data will be used when you and your team don’t even know what it is they’re looking for. How can you make the telemetry you’re adding today useful in an unpredictable future?

    In this episode, we chat about how Honeycomb approaches considerations when adding instrumentation as we develop new code. Our Principal Developer Advocate and contributing software engineer covers how telemetry for Honeycomb’s SLO feature was developed in preparation for its release to production. We’ll show real examples of the telemetry we use in production, look at how different bits of telemetry code are represented in the Honeycomb UI, and talk about what considerations you can use to decide which bits of context to capture in our events. Thanks, past self!

    Do you know exactly what your builds are doing at every step of the way to prod and after they’ve been deployed? How do you identify changes that impact your build time? How do you verify your build did everything you expected? Successful CI/CD asks demanding questions and with observability, you can answer them!

    In this episode, we chat about how Honeycomb uses Honeycomb to build better builds. We cover watching build pipelines with traces, using BubbleUp to find performance impacts/identify optimizations, and using markers with queries to verify deployment behavior.
  • Vendor Agnostic Instrumentation With The OpenTelemetry Collector Recorded: Jun 23 2020 27 mins
    Paul Osman, Instrumentation Engineer
    Achieving the best possible observability involves instrumenting your code with events and traces. This can be costly, and it's common for a large system to have components instrumented with different formats specific to different standards or vendors. In this session, I'll walk through using the OpenTelemetry Collector to combine traces and metrics from services instrumented with different formats. Use cases covered: * Interoperability between OpenTracing, OpenCensus, and other formats.
    • Using processors to modify spans
    • Migrating from one tracing solution to another without rewriting code
    • Sending traces to two separate backends
DevOps teams: what is observability and how do you get started
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.
