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 & 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
