An Introduction to Distributed Tracing and Zipkin
Latency analysis is the act of blaming components for causing user perceptible delay. In today's world of microservices, this can be tricky as requests can fan out across polyglot components and even data-centers. In many cases, the root source of latency isn't a component, but rather a link between components.
This session will overview how to debug latency problems, using call graphs created by Zipkin. While we're at it, we'll discuss how the model works, and how to safely trace production. We'll demo with an example app you can download, using spring boot with spring cloud sleuth. Finally, we'll overview the ecosystem, including tools to trace other languages and frameworks.
When you leave, you'll at least know something about distributed tracing, and hopefully be on your way to blaming things for causing latency!
