Observability is the current buzzword in tech, but, as always, there's a kernel of truth. What is observability, how does apply to modern engineering, and why is this relevant to the networking sector?

Key takeaways & learnings:

  • What is observability
  • Why are metrics, traces(not network traces), and logs the three golden types of data to monitor?
  • How should you define what you monitor? I.e. what is a "service" for you?
  • What should I monitor to run these services?
