Logging in the age of microservices and the cloud
What are the challenges involved in moving from the old “SSH and tail -f” world to a world of centralized and structured logs? Axel Fontaine gives you a full tour in this DevOpsCon session.
The days of the statically partitioned datacenter are over. Welcome to the modern world of microservices and auto-scaling in the cloud. Requests flow through multiple services, individual services are auto-scaled and machines are short-lived. This is a brave new world and it is time to change the way we design and architect our software to better deal with it.
In this talk, Axel Fontaine looks at logging and takes a deep dive into the challenges involved in moving from the old “SSH and tail -f” world to a world of centralized and structured logs, consumable both by humans and machines. This session is for developers and architects looking for battle-tested solutions to implement effective logging for microservices in an auto-scaling world.
