Observability for Serverless Workloads – Ara Pulido, Technical Evangelist, Datadog

Having a good observability strategy has become critical for companies running applications in production, particularly when in a microservices architecture. But what about serverless functions? What are the differences when it comes to monitoring, logging, and tracing for serverless workloads? How can we make sure we are getting the right data from our systems without compromising the size and performance of our functions?

In this session, Ara Pulido will introduce the topic of observability for a serverless architecture. She will explain the different tradeoffs that we should consider and the data points we should focus on to better understand our serverless applications.

Watch this session to learn:

  • How observability strategy is a bit different when it comes to serverless functions
  • Strategies when collecting logs, metrics and traces from your serverless functions
  • Frameworks to define useful metrics for your serverless architecture
