Tradeshow: Chronosphere at Kubernetes Community Days LA at SCALE 20x

Event Date: March 9-10th, 2023


Pasadena Convention Center

This year SCALE is also hosting the first-ever Kubernetes Community Day in the Los Angeles area.  We plan to have workshops, talks, and lightning talks covering everything Cloud Native.  This will include Kubernetes, Docker, serverless, CI/CD, container security, scaling clouds, operators, Istio, gRPC, Etcd, cgroups, Prometheus, ArgoCD, Kubevirt, WASM, serverless, containerized desktops and much more.

KCD-LA will consist of one day of workshops (including 2-3 workshops) followed by one single-track day of regular sessions.

Topics of Discussion

* Who/What/Where/When/Why of openTelemetry

* Demystifying observability terms (telemetry, instrumentation, cardinality, percentile, observability)

* Nuts and Bolts of Instrumentation

* Tour of the Sample App 

* Automatic instrumentation with openTelemetry

* Explore OOTB response time metric on charts 

* Manually add a label to the metric and review new facets to query by

* Explore an OOTB trace 

* Manually instrument and add a span and review new level of visibility

* Discussion – when do you think instrumenting with metrics is a good fit vs spans? How do you think each affects the monitoring components? (e.g. a metric with user_id will not scale well).
