OpenTracing and Metrics: Measure Twice, Instrument Once

Ted Young (https://twitter.com/tedsuo), Director of Open Source Development, LightStep

As systems become highly distributed, mechanisms for correlating diagnostic information become a necessity. In this talk, we will discuss on how the need for correlation is beginning to blur the lines between the formerly separate domains of metrics, logging, and tracing. We will discuss how separating observation from aggregation - using a single, neutral instrumentation API that can push data into multiple types of monitoring systems - as one approach to this problem.

IRONdb - Solving the technical challenges of TSDBs at scale

Fred Moyer (https://twitter.com/phredmoyer), Developer Evangelist, Circonus (IRONdb)

Time series databases are optimized for handling sets of data indexed by time. Aspects of data storage, data safety, and the iops problem are challenges that all TSDBs face at scale. In this talk, we'll look at how IRONdb solves these technical problems, or avoids them entirely. IRONdb is a commercial time series database developed by Circonus, and is a Graphite compatible drop in replacement for Whisper.

Doors open at 6:30pm. Catch up with other quantifiers over food and drinks. Talks start at 7:00pm and end at 8pm. Space is limited, please RSVP.
