This episode is sponsored by Datadog and this week they Datadog wants you to know about Trace Search & Analytics.
Trace Search & Analytics allows you to explore, graph, and correlate application performance data using high-cardinality attributes. You can search and filter request traces using key business and application attributes, such as user IDs, host names, or product SKUs, so you can quickly pinpoint where performance issues are originating and who's being affected. Tight integration with data from logs and infrastructure metrics also lets you correlate these specific trace events to the performance of the underlying infrastructure so you can resolve the problem quickly.
