Logging considered harmful?
One thing that enterprise Java applications have in common, regardless of their framework, is that they produce logs — allegedly human-readable lines of strings that aim to help us to debug, trace, or otherwise inspect what’s going on. The question is, how useful are these logs and do they help us solve problems that actually happen, and whether there are better alternatives for the average developer.
OpenTelemetry for Java (Philipp Krenn, EN)
OpenTelemetry is the hot new standard for getting telemetry data from your Java applications (and others). This talk covers three areas:
- Standards: OpenTracing, W3C Trace-Context, and OpenTelemetry
- Signals: Both what (traces, metrics, logs) and how (instrumentation, OTLP)
- Demo: Making it work and where the boundary is between OpenTelemetry and vendors
