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.
