Course details

Skills you will learn
What are the course deliverables?
  • What you'll learn
  • Explain the importance of monitoring and describe concepts like Golden Signals
  • Demonstrate your knowledge of observability with Instana and explain the pillars of observability, cloud native observability, and types of sampling
  • Implement logging and demonstrate your knowledge of telemetry using OpenTelemetry and tracing using Kubernetes
  • Develop hands-on experience with a variety of tools such as Prometheus, Grafana, Mezmo (LogDNA), OpenTelemetry, and Instana
More about this course
  • Application developers and DevOps professionals must ensure their app works at its best. However, these app may need help with bugs, slow speed, or subpar performance
  • Professionals need to monitor and observe its performance continually
  • Application monitoring involves identifying, measuring, and evaluating the effectiveness of an application
  • On the other hand, Observability refers to how well an app can be monitored by the data obtained from monitoring
  • Both monitoring and observability are necessary to gain insights into the system and ensure its proper functioning
  • This course thoroughly introduces monitoring and observability, covering fundamental concepts and popular tools like Prometheus, Grafana, Mezmo (LogDNA), and Instana
  • You will also learn about the three pillars of observability and tracing for container applications and gain hands-on experience with the OpenTelemetry framework
  • Throughout the course, you will complete interactive hands-on labs to apply your knowledge, and gain experience with the tools and techniques used by software and DevOps professionals
  • By the end of this course, you will be able to demonstrate your knowledge of monitoring and observability, and you will gain the confidence to perform these tasks in a practical setting
