April Meetup: Real-time Server Telemetry

Pointman LLC 403 Main Street, Ste 200 , Buffalo, NY (map)

Hello JavaScripters!

We're back again in April, and continuing our talks on modern devops in the JavaScript world.  This month Stephen Shary will be presenting! (- you may remember his excellent talk on Webpack last year -)

Real-time Server Telemetry: The downfall of logging and rise of data pipelines

Logging in modern applications is a feast or famine. Every scrap of information is needed when triaging production issues, but who can find relevant information among all the DEBUG and PERFORMANCE lines? Logging to files and STDOUT has become incompatible with cloud-native applications and distributed systems (and most other things). Modern telemetry and APM solutions need to tackle the issue of finding needles in haystacks as well as view the system from 50,000 feet with real-time data. Hear the story of our experiences at Kroger creating an open-source-based system including Elastic Search that handles over 1TB of data each day. See how we visualize our current production status and discover problematic applications, servers and systems.

We will be meeting at Pointman LLC again on Monday, April 24th at 6pm.  Food will be provided for attendees.

We look forward to seeing you there!
