The rise of microservice-based applications has had many knock-on effects, not least on the complexity of monitoring your applications. Order-of-magnitude increase in the number of moving parts and rate of change of the application require us to reassess traditional monitoring techniques.
In this talk we will discuss some different approaches to monitoring, visualising and tracing containerised, microservices-based applications. We’ll present different techniques to some of the emergent problems, and try not to rant too much." I'm aiming for a whistle-stop tour of some of my opinions on monitoring, some of the techniques we have for visualisation, and some cool prototypes we're working on for instrumentation free distributed tracing. It'll be pretty technical if we have enough time for the details, but should also be high level enough in places for any non-technical audience members to get involved.
