Instana is an Application Performance Monitoring solution that provides complete visibility into complex distributed systems, including ClickHouse servers. In this webinar, we welcome Marcel Birkner and Yoann Buch of Instana. They describe how the Instana team uses ClickHouse to power their solution, lessons they have learned, and how they integrated them back into Instana’s own ClickHouse monitoring features. 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.
Marcel Birkner is a site reliability engineer (SRE) at Instana. He is responsible for running and monitoring the SAAS platform across multiple cloud providers and multiple continents. He has been involved with the integration of ClickHouse from the start, not just for SAAS but also for on-premises customers.
Yoann Buch is a software engineer at Instana. He is part of the team responsible for the product area focused on distributed tracing where ClickHouse has been used at scale in production for the last 2 years.
Robert Hodges is CEO of Altinity with experience in databases dating back to 1983. ClickHouse is the 20th DBMS he has worked on. His previous database company exited successfully to VMware.
