Tristan Penman, recently returned from a year working with Amazon in Seattle, will be presenting on "Distributed Traces using Zipkin and Akka-Tracing":
"It can be difficult to diagnose performance issues in micro-service architectures, where a single client request may depend upon many different services. This talk will introduce the concept of Distributed Tracing, a technique for understanding how a client request moves through a distributed architecture.
We’ll begin with a quick review of Google’s Dapper paper [https://research.google.com/pubs/pub36356.html
], before looking at Zipkin, a distributed tracing tool that is heavily inspired by Dapper. Finally, we’ll look at how you can use a library called akka-tracing to collect traces from an Akka-based application."
As always, newcomers most welcome. Hope to see you there,
