Use Lightstep to create data-driven hypotheses and resolve issues fast.
Use Lightstep to monitor service performance after a deployment to catch regressions quickly.
Learn how to find the cause of a latency increase using Lightstep's Service Health view.
Learn how to find the cause of an error rate increase using Lightstep's Service Health view.
In Lightstep, you can add deployment markers to the Service Health for Deployments view so that you can easily see when service versions change, and if the change affects performance in any way.
A standard method of identifying the root cause of a performance regression is to manually comb through traces and search for common system attributes associated with that regression or with errors. With Correlations, Lightstep helps you find attributes correlated with latency and errors automatically.
You use the Trace view to see a full trace from beginning to end of a request. The Trace view shows you a flame graph of the full trace (each service a different color) and below that, each span is shown in a hierarchy, allowing you to see the parent-child relationship of all the spans in the trace. Errors are shown in red.
