Abstract

In today’s complex deployment environment, our systems are increasingly more difficult to understand. When “the system” is a composite distributed system using cloud technologies and microservices, things happen everywhere and it’s difficult to get a feel for the system as a whole.

With this distributed deployment, fixing system issues is inherently problematic and a simple, scalable solution is critical. During this talk, Kresten will discuss the importance of having the capability to understand, monitor, and debug complex systems using log analytics in real-time and at a massive scale. Kresten will also cover how and why Humio uses Kafka internally as a straightforward event-sourcing model for distributed deployments.
