Debug your first issue with Honeycomb

In this scenario, you will use Honeycomb to examine API slowness that is being reported by a few users. You’ll diagnose the problem and identify exactly which users are experiencing errors.

Honeycomb helps you analyze the time and resources used in service of any individual request. In this demo, distributed tracing is used to show the individual steps taken by various services as they fulfill requests.

This scenario introduces basic Honeycomb UI concepts, the use of distributed tracing, and Honeycomb analysis features that help you quickly diagnose issues and identify performance optimizations. Start here to see how Honeycomb can help you understand how your system processes requests.

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.
