Webinar: Logs. Traces, Metriken: Observability von .NET 7-Anwendungen

Die zunehmende Komplexität von Softwarelösungen macht ganzheitliches sammeln von Telemetriedaten unabdingbar. Technische und fachliche Telemetriedaten bieten nicht nur eine konkrete Sicht auf das Verhalten von Anwendungen und Nutzern, sie ermöglichen es uns auch, neue Funktionen oder Anpassungen zielgerichtet in den Entwicklungsprozess einfließen zu lassen um Produkte kontinuierlich besser werden zu lassen. In diesem Webinar zeigt Thorsten Hans wie Sie Ihre .NET Anwendungen mit OpenTelemetry instrumentieren um die notwendigen Insights zu bekommen.

  2. With Observability, we gain insights into complex systems by monitoring

    their states and behaviors. Introduction What is Observability?
  3. Addressing Observability means we must collect, store, and analyze data

    from different sources (e.g., individual apps, databases, caches, infrastructure, …) Introduction What is Observability?
  4. With Observability we can identify problems and potential defects before

    they happen, because we look at data over a period of time, which allows us to spot trends Introduction What is Observability?
  5. • Logs • Textual records of discrete events or actions

    within a system • Provides a chronological record that aids in root cause analysis and debugging • Metrics • Point in time measure of different sources • Enables monitoring and alerting based on predefined thresholds or anomalies • Traces • Collection of spans that outline a program’s flow and data progression • Enables end-to-end tracing and troubleshooting of distributed systems Introduction Observability data types
  6. • OpenTelemetry (OTel) is an open-source observability framework • OTel

    empowers devs with generating, collecting, and exporting telemetry data from distributed systems. • OTel provides a standardized set of APIs, libraries, and instrumentation tools that we can use to instrument our apps • OTel supports many programming languages and integrates with various observability systems OpenTelemetry https://opentelemetry.io/
  7. • Add Instrumentation packages to collect more insights • Exporter

    packages are used to send / expose data to integrate with well-known, battle-tested observability solutions (Jaeger, Zipkin, Prometheus, Elastic, ….) • Individual metrics and spans are captured using regular types from .NET BCL Instrumenting .NET Apps
  8. • Observability is mission-critical to • Maintain the reliability and

    performance of your app • Visualize the health of your app • Gain insights about how users use your app • Collect data and generate KPIs and group them into meaningful dashboards • Observability is more than just using ILogger<T> • Do not underrate the importance of custom metrics Conclusion
  9. • OpenTelemetry is the de-facto standard • Both manual and

    automatic instrumentation are super helpful to get insights of the entire application • Look for dedicated Instrumentation NuGet packages to gain more insights e.g, • OpenTelemetry.Instrumentation.SqlClient • OpenTelemetry.Instrumentation.GrpcNetClient • OpenTelemetry.Instrumentation.StackExchangeRedis • OpenTelemetry.Instrumentation.EntityFrameworkCore Conclusion
