A fully online recorded talk, sliding in at just 30 minutes, for JConf in the fall of 2020.

Metrics for the win!

Understanding application behavior is important in any environment. When thinking about metrics in the context of observable distributed systems, most associate application or service-level metrics with memory usage or throughput, but what else can you understand about your application using metrics? This session will explore data and insights gathered from domain-specific metrics using the Micrometer metrics library in both a Spring Boot and Quarkus application. It will also compare the capabilities of MicroProfile Metrics and the OpenTelemetry Java library.
