The three pillars of observability are metrics, logs, and traces. To get a complete view into your applications as well as the Kubernetes platform they run on, you need to be looking at all the different perspectives. In this session, we will look at each pillar to see how we can use the information collected to understand what is happening in our environment today and how to troubleshoot the problems we experience tomorrow. We will share how to do this using various open source tools as well as using the Datadog platform.

In this session of the Kubernetes Master Class, you'll learn:

  • How to think about observability on Kubernetes
  • How to use that to troubleshoot problems
  • How this applies to various tools including Datadog
