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

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.

In this scenario we’ll walk you through using observability (via tracing) to diagnose reported API slowness from a handful of users. In 13 steps (~15 minutes) you’ll go from alert to the individual request that triggered the issue.
