Abstract

A popular approach to monitoring looks at the health of systems and infrastructure components first and then the things that run inside of it. I'd like to offer a different perspective that it is the health of every request that truly matters. In this session, we'll explore what that means, strategies around observability, tooling to that helps us find out request health, and the changing landscape of "external monitoring" to "internal observation".
