Performance Monitoring with Andi Grabner

Software Engineering Daily,

Originally posted on Software Engineering Daily

Application performance monitoring helps an engineer understand what is going on with an application. An application on a single machine is often monitored by inserting bytecode instructions into the application after it has been interpreted. Distributed cloud applications with functionality broken up across multiple servers often use distributed tracing.

Andi Grabner from Dynatrace joins today’s show to explain how monitoring software is built, and how engineers use it to solve problems. Monitoring is core to every business, whether the goal is to understand top-level business processes of to dissect and debug a specific engineering problem. And because monitoring is important at every layer of the stack, there is a plethora of monitoring tools for sale.
