"With microservices every outage is like a murder mystery" is a common complaint. But it doesn't have to be! This talk gives an overview on how to monitor distributed applications. We dive into:

System metrics: Keep track of network traffic and system load.

Application logs: Collect structured logs in a central location.

Uptime monitoring: Ping services and actively monitor their availability and response time.

Application metrics: Get metrics and health via REST or JMX.

Request tracing: Trace requests through a distributed system and Zipkin to show how long each call takes. And we will do all of that live, since it is so easy and much more interactive that way.
