What you'll learn

Applications running on the Kubernetes cluster often feature a lot of different microservices that communicate using network calls. With many dependencies and the sheer number of services to watch, it quickly becomes impractical to debug the application behavior or to find out what causes reduced performance. In this course, Managing Advanced Kubernetes Logging and Tracing, you'll gain the ability to introduce observability within your applications. First, you'll explore logging. Next, you'll delve into tracing. Finally, you'll learn how to introduce monitoring. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the skills and knowledge of different aspects of observability needed to build and manage reliable and scalable distributed systems.
