Today's complex microservice based distributed environments combined with ever more demanding users means performance management is a growing challenge.  In order to meet this challenge, it is imperative to measure and monitor system performance in the one true realistic load test: the production environment.  Doing this whilst delivering continual functional enhancements requires telemetry that is lightweight both in terms of resource overhead and developer burden.  In this talk I will explore the reasons why production is the new performance test, how APM technology can facilitate this and strategies for successful performance management in the wild.
