eBook Description:

Modern Distributed Tracing in .NET: Instrument .NET apps using OpenTelemetry and explore logs and .NET diagnostic tools to debug, monitor, and analyze the performance of complex systems in the cloud

As distributed systems become more complex and dynamic, their observability needs to grow to aid the development of holistic solutions for performance or usage analysis and debugging. Distributed tracing brings structure, correlation, causation, and consistency to your telemetry, thus allowing you to answer arbitrary questions about your system and creating a foundation for observability vendors to build visualizations and analytics.

Modern Distributed Tracing in .NET is your comprehensive guide to observability that focuses on tracing and performance analysis using a combination of telemetry signals and diagnostic tools. You’ll begin by learning how to instrument your apps automatically as well as manually in a vendor-neutral way. Next, you’ll explore how to produce useful traces and metrics for typical cloud patterns and get insights into your system and investigate functional, configurational, and performance issues. The book is filled with instrumentation examples that help you grasp how to enrich auto-generated telemetry or produce your own to get the level of detail your system needs, along with controlling your costs with sampling, aggregation, and verbosity.

  • Understand the core concepts of distributed tracing and observability
  • Auto-instrument .NET applications with OpenTelemetry
  • Manually instrument common scenarios with traces and metrics
  • Systematically debug issues and analyze the performance
  • Keep performance overhead and telemetry volume under control
  • Adopt and evolve observability in your organization

By the end of this Modern Distributed Tracing in .NET book, you’ll be ready to adopt and leverage tracing and other observability signals and tools and tailor them to your needs as your system evolves.
