Logging in the age of Microservices and the Cloud

img

We’ll discuss battle-tested solutions to implement effective logging for microservices in an auto-scaling world.

The days of the statically partitioned datacenter are over. Welcome to the modern world of microservices and auto-scaling in the cloud. Requests flow through multiple services, individual services are auto-scaled and machines are short-lived.

This is a brave new world and it is time to change the way we design and architect our software to better deal with it. In this talk we’ll look at logging and we’ll take a deep dive into the challenges involved into moving from the old "SSH and tail -f" world to a world of centralized and structured logs, consumable both by humans and machines.

This session is for developers and architects looking for battle-tested solutions to implement effective logging for microservices in an auto-scaling world.
