  • 00:00:00 This 1-hour talk is intended for beginners and covers the basics of distributed tracing. The speaker covers the history of distributed tracing, how it works, and some of the benefits and challenges of using it.
  • 00:05:00 Distributed tracing is a technique used to understand the path of data as it propagates through components in an application.
  • 00:10:00 Distributed tracing is a feature of the Java programming language that allows data to be correlated across processes in order to figure out where something went wrong. Tags and logs can be used to capture information about specific events, and tracing infrastructure does not track causality between logged events.
  • 00:15:00 Distributed tracing can help identify where an error occurred in a system, and root out causes of problems. Open telemetry, a product developed in collaboration by multiple organizations, standardizes how distributed tracing should be done to make it easier for companies to adopt.
  • 00:20:00 Open source distributed tracing project Open Telemetry provides a tracing API and tracing features for both Interesting and Open Telemetry, which aim to create a single instrumentation standard. However, the project is still young, and feedback is encouraged to help improve it. A demo of how to instrument an application using Open Telemetry is shown.
  • 00:25:00 This video explains how Jaeger distributed tracing works, and how it can be used to monitor the performance of applications and services.
  • 00:30:00 This YouTube video demonstrates how to create a distributed tracing system using the Trece middleware and the Jaeger utility function. The video also explains how to deploy the tracing system and how to use it to analyze the behavior of a web application.
  • 00:35:00 This YouTube video explains how to use distributed tracing to instrument different parts of a system.
