Beyond grep: Practical Logging and Metrics

Hynek Schlawack

Audience level:
Best Practices & Patterns


Your Python server applications are running but you’re wondering what they are doing? Your only clue about their current state is the server load? Let’s have stroll through the landscape of logging and metrics so you’ll find the perfect fit for your use cases!


Knowing that your application is up and running is great. However in order to make informed decisions about the future, you also need to know in what state your application currently is and how its state is developing over time. This talk combines two topics that are usually discussed separately. However I do believe that they have a lot of overlap and ultimately a similar goal: giving you vital insights about your system in production. We'll have a look at their commonalities, differences, popular tools, and how to apply everything in your own systems while avoiding some common pitfalls.
