How are they supposed to know whether their time is improving if their trainer doesn’t carefully write it down? Well, metrics aren’t just essential for professional sports—or business management, for that matter. The software industry also relies heavily on them. Find out more about metrics from Carlos Schults on Testim’s blog.

Monitoring Microservices: A 5-Step Guide

Why is monitoring microservices so important? It’s because we work in a time where systems are complex, distributed across multiple microservices. In software, we’ve practiced monitoring one system at a time. When we need to look at a different system, we switch to a different screen or tool. But microservices are like instruments in a symphony. We need a way of looking at them together, seeing the music that they produce in one spot.
