Radical Realizations with Tracing & Metric Visualizations

Cloud Foundry

Sean & David will share insights about combining tracing data & metrics with animated traffic dashboards. After this presentation you will be able to better visualize the function of your applications in the clouds. As composite, multi-cloud deployments grow increasingly large & more complex we require more sophisticated ways of collecting and presenting information about the function of these systems. By creating the ability to drill down from a global view all the way into a single node or a single subroutine, we can identify noisy neighbors or potential functions for optimization more effortlessly. This representation enables us to convey a more comprehensive understanding of the variables in play. As a result of their experience untangling intricate distributed SNAFUs, David & Sean recognized the need to make solving this type problem more manageable through more incisive visuals.
