Distributed Tracing: Understanding how your components work together - MicroCPH 2018

Distributed Tracing: Understanding how your components work together - MicroCPH 2018

Understanding failures or latencies in monoliths or small systems usually starts with looking at a single component in isolation. Microservices architecture invalidates this assumption because end user requests now traverse dozen of components and a single component simply does not give you enough information: each part is just one side of a bigger story.

In this talk we’ll look at distributed tracing which summarizes all sides of the story into a shared timeline and also distributed tracing tools like Zipkin, which highlights the relationship between components, from the very top of the stack to the deepest aspects of the system.
