About this book
Cloud observability is complex if you’re new to the cloud and even if you’re an experienced cloud practitioner. Thankfully, the world’s most popular cloud provider, AWS, provides multiple tools for identifying performance bottlenecks in modern distributed applications.
An Insider’s Guide to Observability on AWS will help you use these tools to provide the logging, monitoring, and tracing that your systems need to be as efficient as possible.
This comprehensive guide to observability on AWS covers all the bases, taking you from basic observability with CloudWatch, through automated and machine-learning-powered tools such as AWS DevOps Guru, to OpenTelemetry and AWS managed Prometheus and Grafana. You’ll learn how to implement observability in containers, in serverless applications, and for user experience monitoring. This is truly an all-encompassing guide that provides you the knowledge, skills, and practice to implement observability in your applications from end to end and visualize the results using the wide range of tools provided by AWS. You’ll also see some of the guidelines and best practices, such as how the Well-Architected Framework relates to observability.
By the end of the book, you will find it easy to implement observability in your applications using AWS’ native and managed open source tools.
