While APM transaction tracing is helpful for analysing calls in a single application, distributed tracing analyses the path a request takes across multiple applications and services–from start to finish. With this wider view, you can quickly troubleshoot performance bottlenecks and errors.

In this 90-minute workshop, you’ll learn how New Relic distributed tracing can extend your tracing capabilities and how you can configure it for your different environments. You’ll get hands-on experience in the different ways of working with the UI, combining it with APM and logs data, and use it to solve a range of problems.

You’ll also learn how to:

  • What distributed tracing is, and why it's important
  • How distributed tracing works
  • Common use cases for distributed tracing
  • How to configure distributed tracing for your New Relic environments

The lab sessions will cover:

  • Distributed tracing in the New Relic UI.
  • Understanding errors and latency with distributed tracing.
  • Resolving issues with:
    • Specific services
    • Time periods
    • Errors
    • Outliers
