The True Cost of “Search-First” Problem-solving on Your Production Systems

The search-first problem-solving approach—meaning “open up the log search tool” (Splunk, ELK, Loggly, SumoLogic, Scalyr, etc)—is a costly and time-consuming operation during which the true source of a problem is rarely pinpointed in short…

Always Bee Tracing

Why I joined Honeycomb

At the end of last summer it was time to make some changes and so I reconnected with my network, old and new searching for the next great opportunity. I took on a few…

See Honeycomb in Action

Honeycomb is an event-driven observability platform for debugging systems, application code, and databases. Honeycomb ingests structured data and performs read-time query aggregation to support speedy analytics over ultra-rich datasets without indexes or schemas to maintain, and a fast, interactive interface.

CTO at Nylas

"I've spent my fair share of time drowning in metrics, dashboards & logs, and Honeycomb’s vision is like a glass of cold water in the desert."

Joe Beda

Founder and CTO, Heptio

"After spending 10 years at Google I thought I had a good handle on the different techniques to monitor what is going on with services. But Honeycomb changes the game by supporting fast exploration over high cardinality data. It has super powers over traditional monitoring."
