Tracing and Monitoring Reactive Applications

About this Session

Understanding how reactive applications are executing in a highly distributed environment can be complicated. Looking at traditional log files only gives a snapshot of the whole story and looking at a single service in isolation simply does not give enough information. Each service is just one side of a bigger story. Distributed tracing has emerged as an invaluable technique that succeeds in summarizing all sides of the story into a shared timeline. During this session, we will take a look at patterns and means to implement Tracing for services written in Scala.
