Pattern: Distributed tracing

Problem

How to understand the behavior of an application and troubleshoot problems?

Solution

Instrument services with code that assigns each external request an unique identifier. The external request id is passed to all services that are involved in handling the request and included in application logging messages. Record information (e.g. start time, end time) about the work (e.g. service requests) performed when handling the external request in a centralized service.
