Analyze Your Distributed Tracing Data Faster
Simply put, Honeycomb gives you an easy-to-use distributed tracing solution for monitoring microservices. Features include a full-text search over trace spans and toggle to collapse and expand sections of trace waterfalls. With a waterfall view, quickly diagnose bottlenecks, optimize performance, and understand how your system is processing service requests. Easily switch views to see the time and resources taken to service any request visualized in different interactive charts, such as histograms and heatmaps.Play with Honeycomb Tracing - no signup
White Paper: Distributed Tracing - A Guide for Microservices and More
At Honeycomb, we believe that distributed tracing doesn’t have to be an exercise in frustration. That’s why we’ve made this guide for the rest of us to democratize tracing for microservices and more.Distributed Tracing Paper

What Exactly is Going On
Tracing is an understanding tool as much as a debugging tool; a way for code authors to communicate the structure of their code. With waterfall views you don’t have to be an expert to tell if fetching results was the bottleneck or persisting results.Trace the path
Go Deep Without Getting Lost
Comparing diagrams is a useful way to get a quick overview of a trace. At a glance, see if most traces are doing the same work, or if something is behaving differently.
No Switching Between Tools
Click on spans and take a look at the metadata. See the value of adding extra fields to spans and understand call requests and if any use 3rd party services. Switch between query result views and tracing to more deeply diagnose.
