🎥 The Observability Guide to Platform Engineering, Part 2 - Observing & Analyzing Backstage, Argo, Git

Community Team
Community Team


Internal Development Platforms (IDPs) contain critical platform services that enable developer self-service (through tools like Backstage, Port, Cortex ...), version control & continuous integration (GitLab, GitHub, …) as well as GitOps-based continuous deployment (Argo, Flux, …).

Like any product, observability is needed to understand whether those components of your platform work as expected, are efficient, resilient, and provide the desired value to the end-users.

In this Observability Clinic, Andreas Grabner @andreas_grabner, CNCF Ambassador and Global DevRel Lead at Dynatrace, walks you through:

- End 2 End Self-Service IDP for onboarding new applications based on a new GitHub Tutorial
- How to observe (logs, metrics, traces …) platform tools such as Backstage, Argo, GitLab, and others
- How to analyze any issues with those components using Dynatrace Notebooks
- How to automate observability into your self-service platform use cases
