Tracing HTTP request latency using Jaeger with Python

Vivek Sridhar (~vivek861)




Distributed tracing is a technique for monitoring & profiling systems built on microservices architecture. Distributed tracing is quickly becoming a must-have component in the tools that organisations use to monitor their complex, microservice-based architecture. Jaeger is an open source tool and part of CNCF project released and worked by Uber.


Introduction to Microservices Distributed Tracing & OpenTracing standards Using Jaeger to monitor microservices-based distributed systems covering:

 - Distributed context propagation
 - Distributed transaction monitoring
 - Root cases analysis
 - Service dependency analysis
 - Performance / Latency optimization

Implementing Tracing with python library live and transforming existing code to traceable code. Demo Jaeger with an (python code) example from a monitoring perspective (specific to solve latency issue). Demo of tracing to collect application metrics.

And more.
