Log Analytics: Understanding Complex Systems at Scale

Kresten Krab Thorup at GOTOpia November 2020

In today’s complex deployment environment, our systems are increasingly more difficult to understand. When “the system” is a composite distributed system using cloud technologies and micro services, things happen everywhere and it’s difficult to get a feel for the system as a whole.
With this distributed deployment, fixing system issues is inherently problematic and a simple, scalable solution is critical. During this talk, Kresten will discuss the importance of having the capability to understand, monitor, and debug complex systems using log analytics in real-time and at a massive scale. Kresten will also cover how Humio is used to support and develop Humio — itself a distributed system at scale — and how the architecture is radically different ...
