Production Debugging Techniques

Speakers: Theo Schlossnagle
Topic(s): Science & Computing


Debugging applications in a development environment is one of the first skills software engineers every learn.  However, the real bugs happen in production under circumstances that are difficult, nay impossible, to reproduce.  When working on high-performance, highly scalable, and/or asynchronous systems it is important to have a different set of debugging and analysis tools: in-flight techniques.

In this session, attendees will under gain an understanding of how debugging under production conditions is different than debugging under typical development conditions and learns tips, tricks and techniques for making the most out of a bonafide production catastrophe.
