Distributed traces are narratives, and they have myriad stories to tell us about the software systems we've created. But, it's not uncommon for these traces to be underutilized. And, in this case, the stories are left untold, and our investment is not only pointless but even wasteful. It's like joining a gym and never stepping foot into the place. This talk will catalog a selection of analysis techniques, explore how we can employ multiple techniques to maximize their value, and go over a couple of common use-cases to ground the discussion in familiar problems. The techniques covered will be human-centric; our objective is to gain insight into our software system and to facilitate decision-making. To finish, we'll discuss how deep we need to go with these techniques before we start realizing their value.
