Whitepapers Observability Debugging

Getting Started With Honeycomb Client-Side Instrumentation for Browser Applications

Software engineering teams write code at varying layers of the stack, but the browser is often the least instrumented and the least well observed, even for teams that have adopted observability. 

Instrumenting browser applications can reveal user issues that can’t be observed or diagnosed any other way.

This whitepaper shows you how to apply core observability concepts and capabilities like distributed tracing to debugging performance issues with client-side applications. Learn how you can use Honeycomb to: 

  • Understand how responsive your browser apps feel to specific users
  • Use OpenTelemetry to instrument your frontend applications
  • Perform both synthetic monitoring and real user monitoring
  • Create client-side code with better reliability
