Applications, and the teams that build them, have changed. In lieu of monolithic services and complex deployments, the software industry is moving towards smaller and more composable services that can be deployed more rapidly by independent teams. This paradigm shift in development style and strategy calls for new tools and techniques to understand our software.

Distributed Tracing has found some favour as an answer to the problems posed by modern development, but what is it really? How does it work, and where did it come from?

In this session, you will learn about the history of distributed tracing, why it’s become so popular, how it can replace traditional logging methods for monitoring application state, and how you can get started using it.

By the end of this talk, you will

  • Understand the current state of distributed tracing and its history.
  • Learn how distributed tracing helps alleviate common distributed systems problems.
  • Be able to evaluate distributed tracing analysis tools and differentiate between them.
