You'll run it everywhere there's a production system. Some kind of Metrics collector like Statsd or InfluxDB. They work like magic, reporting on the health of your application. but how does it really happen?

We dive in on how these Application Performance Management tools work and how do they really "see into" your application. We demistify all this magic, and actually describe how to add "new" metrics and how to publish it!

If you ever worked in a production application, and were wondering how do these metrics get graphed and collected, well, wonder-no-more! We go deep into Micrometer (the SLF4J of Metrics) and how it all works!
