OpenTracing Isn't Just Tracing: Measure Twice, Instrument Once [B] - Ted Young, LightStep
Those building microservices at scale understand the role and importance of distributed tracing: it’s the most direct way to understand how and why a system is misbehaving. However, often this information has been hard to procure, given the challenges of explicit instrumentation, and once obtained, it is siloed from other relevant data such as logging and other monitoring.

The OpenTracing project provides a standard, portable API for distributed tracing instrumentation and changes that. In this talk, Priyanka and Ted will begin by describing OpenTracing and explaining why anyone who monitors microservices should care about it. Having laid that groundwork, the talk will step back to examine the historical role of operational logging and metrics in distributed system monitoring, then illustrate how the OpenTracing API maps to these tried-and-true abstractions. There will also be a demo involving donuts, distributed traces, and prometheus monitoring (all via OpenTracing).

OpenTracing and Containers: Depth, Breadth, and the Future of Tracing [I] - Priyanka Sharma & Ted Young, LightStep
Those building microservices at scale understand the role and importance of distributed tracing: it’s the most direct way to understand how and why a system is misbehaving. But distributed tracing has long harbored a dirty secret: the source code instrumentation can been complex, fragile, expensive, and difficult to maintain.

The OpenTracing project addresses that integration problem through standardization and collaborations with other open-source software systems. In this talk, Ted will begin by describing OpenTracing and explaining why you should care about it. He will then show how OpenTracing will be able to deliver zero-touch, black-box instrumentation of distributed applications via orchestration systems like Kubernetes, and why that could change the way we all reason about distributed computation.

Distributed Tracing Salon: Kubernetes, OpenTracing, Group Therapy, & Brainstorming
The distributed tracing "salon" is an unconference oasis in the midst of KubeCon. Think of it as a “donut salon” (yes, there will be donuts).

The session will be a 100% interactive discussion around distributed tracing. We’ll have tables for tracing beginners, tracing experts, and everything in between. This being KubeCon, several of the proposed topics relate specifically to containers and k8s. We have “group therapy” tables to compare notes about integration and deployment, “brainstorming” tables to talk about tracing across the user/kernel boundary, and “learning” tables to get started with tracing specifically. And of course there will be self-guided donut+coffee pairing.

You will be able to suggest topics of discussion.

The session will be facilitated by Priyanka Sharma, Ted Young and senior engineers from companies using OpenTracing in production to help create a free-flow conversation.

This is a first-come-first-served session and it is capped at 50 attendees (we want everyone to actually have a conversation!) so please sign up here in advance if you can.
