Observable Microservices make Monitoring simple

Submitted Mar 24, 2020

Microservices is not a buzz word anymore. Every other organisation builds and deliver scalable, cloud native HA microservices. As a result of the simplicity (broken down microservices), the deployments and environments get complicated.

The complication: In microservices architecture, each and every request is served by one or more services like authentication service, notification service, inventory service etc…The requests can either be initiated by user or initiated by one of the other microservices in the system. Say something went wrong while serving a request.

Though there are umpteen number of tools SREs (Site Reliability Engineers) use in the cloud to monitor the microservices, new issues are always ‘unknown’. Every service would have been logging along the way to serve the request but is not an easy task to find all the relevant log messages for a particular request amongst millions of log messages. So, observability plays a key role here.
How Observability need to be adopted by enterprises as a coding culture so that the debugging & monitoring get soimplified


This session is targeted to cover how to make the services observable so that the monitoring becomes a piece of cake.
Demo: Making Microservices observable leveraging instrumentation tool
Target Audience: Microservices Adopters, DevOps Practitioners

Key Takeaways:
1. What is observability in microservices world?
2. The Pillars of Observability
3. Tools & Techniques of Making Microservices Observable
