In highly distributed cloud native environments, application requests traverse many third-party APIs and managed services. Applying distributed tracing on your own code through instrumentation is relatively simple, but requires a lot of work. The challenge however, really lays with the API and managed service, and how to trace a full request across services like queues, streams, and databases.
In this session we will discuss:
- The technical challenges gaining observability with managed services.
- Methods to build the full trail of transactions across managed services.
- Ideas on how to obtain observability in a highly async distributed world.
- We’ll technically drill down to some managed services examples.
