About this Episode

With the continued evolution of distributed systems, enterprises can find themselves struggling to monitor their microservices and containerized infrastructures after making the shift over from monolithic infrastructure environments. This goes beyond being unable to trace a problem microservice or logging issue, but reflects deeply on the underlying issues at hand when monitoring and tracing at scale.

On today’s episode of The New Stack Makers, Lightstep Co-Founder and OpenTracing co-author Ben Sigelman sat down with TNS Founder Alex Williams during CloudNativeCon 2016 to break down the evolution of tracing beyond projects such as Dappler, and why ultimately it wasn’t the solution to tracing and monitoring issues for the community at large.
