Understanding Distributed Systems with Contextually Rich Trace Data


Distributed tracing can help you quickly find what’s causing latency in a microservice architecture—and it can do a lot more, too.

Join 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 behavior 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
