Session + Live Q&A

Java Flight Recorder as an Observability Tool

JDK Flight Recorder (JFR) is one of the best sources of telemetry and monitoring data for the JVM. However, it has not achieved particularly widespread usage - many Java engineers do not use it regularly and those that do frequently only use it via the Mission Control (JMC) GUI tool.

In this talk, Ben Evans explains recent developments with JFR, and discusses how tooling based on JFR fits into the growing field known as Observability and some of the ongoing F/OSS work and standards in this space.
