Microservices (and now serverless) pose a lot of interesting challenges when it comes to monitoring. Decoupling of code down to the "function" level offers a *lot* of interesting opportunities in terms of efficiently architecting code, but many a time does so at a loss of context. The lose of context makes monitoring of apps and performing Root Cause analysis of issues harder than what it used to be in monolithic (and even SOA) architectures. This talk condenses some of the serverless monitoring research and practices into an experience rich talk full of actionable advice for those implementing serverless.
