Detecting and diagnosing performance issues in microservices can be difficult due to the distributed and decoupled nature of microservice-based architecture. While it is important to have metrics on the individual components, it may be necessary to follow the progress of a request as it travels across multiple service boundaries in order to identify problems. In this session, we will explore how AWS provides native monitoring, logging, alarming, and dashboards with Amazon CloudWatch and tracing through AWS X-Ray and OpenTelemetry to provide the 3 pillars (Metric, Logs & Traces) of an overall observability solution.
