Observability is critical for engineering, managing, and improving complex business-critical systems. Through this process, any software engineering team can gain a deeper understanding of system performance, so you can perform ongoing maintenance and ship the features your customers need. This practical book explains the value of observable systems and shows you how to build an observability-driven development practice.
Authors Charity Majors and Liz Fong-Jones from Honeycomb explain what constitutes good observability, show you how to make improvements from what you’re doing today, and provide practical dos and don’ts for migrating from legacy tooling, such as metrics monitoring and log management. You’ll also learn the impact observability has on organization culture.
This is a preview of our upcoming O'Reilly book that includes introductory chapters focussed on how observability differs from traditional approaches to managing software in production. With your registration we promise to send you new chapters as they become available.
