Looking at what’s happening inside a container and inside a process can be hard. Jorge Salamero explains how to use eBPF to leverage system calls, allowing you to know everything, from performance to (mis)behavior, errors and more at all levels (network, filesystem, process, etc.). Jorge explores the challenges of practical observability, from tracing and custom metrics with Prometheus to agent- and check-based metric collection down to the kernel for eBPF system analysis. He then compares state-of-the-art eBPF open source tools and their use cases.
Jorge Salamero is a technical marketing manager at Sysdig. Jorge enjoys monitoring all the things, from his Docker containers and Kubernetes clusters to writing sensors plugins and DIY IoT projects with Raspberry Pi and ESP8266. Previously, he was one of the promoters of HumanOps and a Debian developer. When he’s away from his computer, you can find him walking with his two dogs in the mountains or driving his car on a twisted road.
