Distributed tracing can help you quickly find what’s causing latency in a microservice architecture—and it can do a lot more, too.
Watch Jason Van Pelt, senior software engineer on New Relic's distributed tracing team, and learn how to unpack the contextually rich data in distributed tracing for more effective troubleshooting.
After an intro to the robust distributed tracing capabilities in New Relic, you’ll discover how to:
- Better understand the behaviour of your systems with distributed tracing
- Perceive the broader impact that an underlying issue may have on your systems
- Put distributed tracing data in context with the rest of your monitoring data, so you can quickly pinpoint the cause of problems and ensure better end-user experiences

Jason Van Pelt is a senior software engineer on New Relic's distributed tracing team, where he focuses on understanding and building the perspectives customers need to quickly troubleshoot their systems. Since his early days in tech as a sys-admin—building and maintaining services and thousands of end-user systems—Jason dreamed of a monitoring system that could show him how everything fits together and easily pinpoint the source of issues. Since joining New Relic in 2013, he's had the pleasure of helping to build that experience.
