Distributed Tracing of Microservice Architectures

A session at ArchConf

Wednesday 6th April, 2016

1:30pm to 3:00pm (PST)

Embracing microservices also means embracing distributed systems. Distributed systems carry with them multiple challenges. One set of challenges includes problem of visibility into the behavior of the composite system, understanding that behavior, and being able to isolate the cause(s) of problematic behavior. These challenges can be addressed by applying the techniques known collectively as Distributed Tracing.

In this presentation, we’ll examine the theory of distributed tracing put forth in Google’s Dapper paper, and we’ll look at how this theory is put into practice in the design of Zipkin, an OSS distributed tracing platform.
