How to Architect and Build Highly Observable Systems

Is your application easy to monitor in production? Many are, but sadly, some applications are designed with observability as an afterthought.

Observability is one of the most important factors of building and running services successfully at scale. It’s best to build it in from the start, just like
backups, security, auditability, and so on. In this way, you can make tradeoffs and plan proactively, instead of accidentally.

This eBook collects the experience of a variety of experienced architects and combines it with what customers have taught us about observability. I hope you’ll be able to apply the best practices in this book to avoid pitfalls later and create a highly observable application, so you can get excellent visibility and troubleshooting ability with minimal cost and effort.
