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 Observability helps you find attributes correlated with latency and errors automatically.

Query real-time span data

Lightstep Observability's Explorer view allows you to query all span data currently in the Microsatellites' retention window 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 hierarchy and performance

You can use Lightstep Observability'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.
