Tracing IBM Cloud Functions with Jaeger

San Francisco

September 12, 2019

Serverless functions can be a part of a larger distributed system, or individual functions for specific purposes. In some applications, serverless functions even depend on other serverless functions. The complexity of distributed systems increases very rapidly.

The ever increasing complexity increases the need to monitor both performance and reliability. Tracing microservices is very common, but what about serverless functions?

In this meetup, learn:
– Why you should be tracing serverless functions
– How serverless function requests can be traced
– Setting up tracing of IBM Cloud Functions with the open source tracing tool Jaeger
– Analyzing the data
