Distributed Systems and Exception Monitoring with Brian Rue
Exception monitoring services and log management services are two sides of a gradient. Exception monitoring services capture and aggregate the problems that occur on your application. Log management services aggregate all of your logs, so that you can decide for yourself what constitutes a problem.
Brian Rue from Rollbar joins the show today to talk about Rollbar’s exception monitoring architecture, and the competitive landscape of these technology products. Every software engineer wants track the problems with an application, but some developers need more information than others–and that ends up changing how these error aggregation services are architected. This is an interesting conversation on the business of SaaS products for developers, and the architecture of a distributed system designed to monitor and aggregate errors.
