Abstract

The simple goal of observability is to make systems better. Gaining insights into the behavior of systems is critical to improve their overall health and resiliency and this is imperative for distributed systems, especially those with more cloud native architectures like microservices. But observing these complex software architectures can be a real pain. 
 
In this talk, Alex will share his insights on how logs can become the central signal for enabling observability for microservices architectures. Alex will also share his top tips on using observability best practices to gain a better understanding of the behavior of complex systems.
