Imagine this: You wake up to find your Slack blowing up. Alerts are going off and users are complaining. You go straight to your Datadog (or New Relic, or Kibana, etc.) dashboard and you can see right away there's a problem. What's not clear is why the problem happened. Since you can't tell the root cause, you realize you have to go digging through traces and probably (you shudder) through logs. You sink into despair - it's going to be a long night.

Join us for this technical discussion where we'll cover:

  • A set of heuristics, gleaned from analysis of 1,000+ incidents, that mimic the process of an experienced troubleshooter to identify the best root cause indicators in the logs (the same ones a human expert would have eventually found)
  • How these heuristics can be automated to achieve > 95% accuracy
  • A demonstration showing the root cause automatically appearing on a Datadog dashboard shortly after running a chaos experiment that simulates a failure
