The complexity of modern applications and shared nature of infrastructure creates new challenges for developers in troubleshooting production outages quickly and consistently. Knowing what to look for and where can be harder when you don’t have the right observability, and even more so when you are up against the clock in restoring your critical services.

By combining metrics, tracing, and logs, increase your observability and reduce mean time to detection and resolution of operational incidents.

With the help of hands-on labs, this workshop will take attendees from beginner to expert in building their observability with log data. Participants will walk through best practices for log collection, processing, and retention, and then dive into scenarios that will help them analyze data from multiple sources using Log Management’s powerful search and analytics capabilities.

Attendees will leave with hands-on experience with logging, plus proven strategies to build an organizational culture of efficient logging, optimizing for various use cases, and building richer insights into application behavior and user experiences.
