Play with Events

In May 2018, Honeycomb experienced a product outage which we documented in our post-mortem on our blog. We uploaded the (anonymized) production data from that outage into a sandbox environment of Honeycomb.

In this scenario we’ll walk you through using observability to diagnose this specific outage. In 16 steps (~15 minutes) you’ll go from “being paged” to breaking down the issue by high-cardinality events as you debug the outage.

Play with Tracing and BubbleUp

Honeycomb Tracing shows the time and resources taken to service any request, making it easy to diagnose bottlenecks, optimize performance, and understand how your system processes requests. BubbleUp makes it easy to figure out why some events are running more slowly than others.

In this scenario, we’ll walk you through using these tools to diagnose reported API slowness from a handful of users. In 10 steps (~15 minutes), you’ll go from an alert to finding the problem and identifying the users who are experiencing it.
