[Webinar]: The Difference Between Tracing, Tracing, and Tracing: Defining and Addressing the Challenges of Distributed Tracing


Distributed tracing, open tracing, transaction tracing. ”Tracing” is an incredibly complex subject and, depending on context, can refer to entirely different things—so what do we mean when we talk about “tracing”?

In this on-demand webinar, Erika Arnold, lead architect for New Relic’s distributed tracing project, will share how her team tackled these complexities while planning for the next generation of tracing at New Relic.

This webinar explores:

  • The three primary use cases for tracing: analyzing, describing and recording transactions—and how our distributed tracing has been designed to support each
  • The challenges of tracking complete end-to-end traces in a distributed environment—and why (and how) we partnered with standards groups to address them
  • How our distributed tracing is designed to make trace data meaningful by separating signal from noise
