In the microservice era, working with tens of hundreds of services leads to difficulties getting a grasp of the application health such as error frequency, server resources, response times and throughput. It is said visualization tools can help us command a view of the whole system and detect problems in the early stages or prevent them from occurring, but the important thing is to choose proper tools and create dashboards the right way.
This session offers techniques for visualizing microservices built by Spring Boot applications using Elasticsearch, Kibana, and Spring Cloud Sleuth. Besides visualizing server resources and access logs, service dependencies and performance bottlenecks, and business statuses such as conversion rate are also visualized. Let’s have fun diving into visualizing your applications.
