Tracing for Java Developers



You are already using logs and metrics to monitor your applications. Why should you be adding tracing or Application Performance Management (APM)? This talk gives a hands-on overview of:

* What you can (not) do with tracing.
* How you can easily add tracing to your Java applications.
* What OpenTracing (or soon OpenTelemetry) adds to the landscape.

The demo is using the open source Elastic APM agent with its OpenTracing bridge, so the general concepts widely apply.
