Distributed transaction tracing (DTT) is a way of following the progress of message requests as they permeate through distributed cloud environments. Tracing the transactions as they make their way through many different layers of the application stack, such as from Kafka to ActiveMQ to MQ or any similar platform, is achieved by tagging the message request with a unique identifier that allows it to be followed.

Most companies in today’s business landscape that deal with large amounts of data want to integrate their applications so that they can pass data between them seamlessly and easily. Being able to ensure that you can see exactly what is happening at every stage of the process is key, and this is where approaching the process with observability in mind can make a real difference.

When businesses look at how best to understand the performance levels of their platforms, some of the best incident management metrics to look at are Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) and Mean Time To Resolution (MTTR). These two measurements will give an excellent indication of the health and speed of the system, as well as the ability of the platform to take care of any anomalies that have been detected or to flag them up for others to take action to resolve them.

Integration is a fundamental part of any IT infrastructure. It allows organizations to connect different systems and applications together in order to share data and information. As organizations become more complex and interconnected, they need to ensure they have complete observability and monitoring of their integration architecture.

There’s a lot to consider when engineering and implementing software, whether as an update patch or a newly-introduced product. End users have certain expectations when introduced to new or updated software—at the top of the list are aesthetics, ease of use, stability, and response time—the last two of which can be significantly improved when you employ application performance management or APM.

Information Technology (IT) has always relied on monitoring to provide an understanding of how systems perform over time. The basics has always been to collect a series of metrics and to build an algorithm that shows how these metrics are related, and then to show when a system is either reaching the limits of its capacity or is likely to break.

What is observability? What is the difference between observability vs monitoring? - Since rejoining Nastel, after a long period away in the cloud, I’ve been wondering why people are now talking about ‘observability’ when they used to talk about ‘monitoring’.

The classic methods of monitoring computing platforms created a vast array of odometers and graphs that displayed the changes over time of critical system parameters.

The thinking has always been that if you can measure key system performance and capacity parameters, then you can build up a picture of performance from which you can then calculate and predict performance issues.
