In this webinar, we welcome Marcel Birkner and Yoann Buch of Instana.

Along the way, you’ll learn how to set up Instana on ClickHouse, what important metrics you should track, how ClickHouse is integrated in end-to-end distributed tracing, and what level of automation is available for root cause analysis and alerting.
