Troubleshooting in Microservices using Distributed Tracing

Submitted Nov 26, 2019

In Microservicves Architecture, requests are often served by multiple services. Each service handles a portion of a request by performing one or more operations (e.g. database queries, publishes messages) and delegate to other services for fulfillment. This session is planned to address tracing the requests with the help of instrumentation tools

Target Audience: Microservices Adopters

Key Takeaways: Tools & Techniques of troubleshooting in Microservices


  • logging/ tracing and alerting
  • Distributed Systems (Microservices) in the cloud


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 every service would have been logging along the way to serve the request it’s not an easy task to find all the relevant log messages for a particular request amongst millions of log messages.
