Add infrastructure Metrics to Your Instrumentation

Lightstep can ingest infrastructure metrics from your instrumentation to report on things like CPU and memory usage to help you resolve incidents fater.

Product Docs

Create Dashboards from Streams

Group multiple Lightstep Streams to create a dashboard.

Product Docs

Create Deployment Markers

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.

Find Correlated Areas of Latency and Errors

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.

Integrate with Grafana Using the Lightstep Plugin

Integrate and see Lightstep dashboards in Grafana. From the Grafana UI you can navigate directly to Lightstep where you can continue your investigation.

Product Docs

Investigate a Latency Regression

You can use Lightstep not only to monitor your services after a deploy, but also to compare performance over specific time periods and then dig into details to find the differences that caused the issue.

Product Docs

Investigate an Error Rate Increase

When you notice an increase in error rate on Lightstep's Service Health view, you can use the analytical tools to find the source of errors.

Product Docs

Monitor Deployments

Lightstep offers a way to see how your deployments (even partial deployments) affect your service performance.

Product Docs

Monitor Service Health and Performance Changes

See the health of the key operations on your services, including latency, error rate, operation rate, and infrastructure metrics.

Product Docs

Monitor a Service Level Indicator with Streams

Create Streams to view historical span and trace data and monitor your services.

Product Docs

Query Real-Time Span Data

Lightstep's Explorer view allows you to query all span data currently in the Satellites to see what's going on. You create Snapshots that are durably persisted, allowing you to view performance at a certain point in time and share that Snapshot with others. You can see real-time span data, filter and group that data, and drill down on common attributes that may be causing latency.

View Service Health

Lightstep offers a way to quickly see how all your services and their operations are performing in one place - the Service Directory view.

Product Docs

View Service Hierarchy and Performance

You can use Lightstep's Service diagram to get an aggregate view of trace data as a request travels through your system. The Service diagram provides a visual, interactive, and hierarchical representation of a system’s behavior for a given point in time.

Product Docs

View Traces

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.

View and Compare Deployed Versions

Lightstep offers a way to see how your deployments (even partial deployments) affect your service performance.
