The rise of microservice-based applications has had many knock-on effects, not least on the complexity of monitoring your application. 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.
