THWACKcamp2018 Preview – “Observability”: Just a Fancy Word for “Monitoring”? A Journey from What to Why
Have you registered for THWACKcamp™ 2018? What are you waiting for? This year’s event offers multiple sessions from both industry experts and SolarWinds Head Geeks™ on topics important to you, including mapping, logging, security, and more.
I’m lucky to join SolarWinds director of engineering Dan Kuebrich in a session titled “‘Observability’: Just a Fancy Word for ‘Monitoring’? A Journey from What to Why.” With his years of experience and my wisdom, we’ll be parsing through the hype surrounding observability to bring you a useful set of approaches to combine your metrics, logs, and even traces to make your operations life easier. You’ll learn about metrics abstraction, how to use logs as evidence in root cause investigation, and ways to observe transactions end to end as they travel through all elements of your infrastructure.
We’re excited to make this our best THWACKcamp yet. Don’t miss this premier, two-day online IT learning event, where thousands of attendees network with each other on the hottest topics in IT today. It’s our seventh year, and we can’t wait to (virtually) see you October 17th and 18th!
