Tracing: A foundation of modern Observability?

Presented by

José Carlos Chavez

About this talk

Distributed Tracing, which is getting a lot of mindshare in the last few years, is now becoming the new foundation of DevOps. Unlike traditional Application Performance Monitoring (APM), Distributed Tracing is intended to address the observability challenges and use-cases in the new microservices world. It is particularly well-suited to debugging and monitoring modern distributed software architectures, such as microservices. It helps pinpoint or isolate where failures occur and what causes sub-optimal performance. In this discussion, Jose Carlos will talk about how distributed tracing provides the context which metrics and logs don’t and what are different interesting use-cases he came across and challenges he faced while working on tracing in the past few years. Speaker bio: José Carlos 'JC' Chávez (@jcchavezs) is a Sr. Software Engineer at where he works on Zipkin, Hypertrace & OpenTelemetry, and all things tracing! Prior to Traceable, JC worked at Expedia where he contributed to Zipkin and Haystack
