Distributed monitoring: How to understand the chaos

Modern software development is increasingly taking a “microservice” approach that has resulted in an explosion of complexity at the network level. We have more applications running distributed across different datacenters. Distributed tracing, events, and metrics are essential for observing and understanding modern microservice architectures.
This talk is a deep dive on how to monitor your distributed system. You will get tools, methodologies, and experiences that will help you to realize what your applications expose and how to get value out from all these information.
Gianluca Arbezzano, SRE at InfluxData, will share how to monitor a distributed system, how to switch from a more traditional monitoring approach to observability. Stay focused on the server’s role and not on the hostname because it’s not essential anymore, our servers or containers are fast
