Why Distributed Tracing is Essential for Performance and Reliability

Speaker: Daniel "spoons" Spoonhower, CTO and Co-Founder at Lightstep

Many engineering organizations have now adopted microservices or other loosely coupled architectures, often alongside DevOps practices. Together these have enabled individual service teams to become more independent and, as a result, have boosted developer velocity. However, this increased velocity often comes at the cost of overall application performance or reliability. Worse, teams often don’t understand what’s affecting performance or reliability – or even who to ask to learn more. Distributed tracing was developed at organizations like Google and Twitter to address these problems and has also come a long way in the decade since then. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why distributed tracing is necessary and how it can bring performance and reliability back under control.

Information Risk: 3 Principles to Improve Your Board Presentations


As a result, chief information security officers (CISOs) are presenting to their Boards on a more frequent basis, for longer at a time, and for the entire board, rather than just a subcommittee. Well-run presentations can be the key to gaining the trust of the board and senior executives, which can pay dividends in terms of access to more funding, greater influence on executive-level decision making, and, perhaps equally importantly, job security if – or when – something goes wrong.
