Companies use software to run their business in today’s digital world. With the increased use of microservices, containers, and cloud-based technologies, traditional methods of monitoring and solving problems are no longer enough. That’s where observability comes in.
Observability and monitoring are often confusing. While monitoring refers to regular observation and recording of activities taking place within a project, observability watches and understands how a system performs and behaves in real time. Leveraging observability allows developers to better understand the system and quickly resolve any potential issues.
