Debugging or troubleshooting large-scale distributed systems is difficult due to its complexity; a single request may trigger the execution of hundreds of components running in parallel on many different machines. To help developers or operators gain deeper knowledge about the behavior of their distributed systems, Yuichi Bando proposes a tracing method that can be applied to their applications simply by slightly modifying an existing RPC library. This tracing helps them know a flow of processing and find performance bottlenecks. He implemented it to Eventlet, RPC library widely used in OpenStack project, and also started to discuss with Eventlet community in order for this feature to be included in Eventlet.

In this talk, he will demonstrate the tracking of swift, OpenStack object storage, as an example. In addition, how to visualize the trace data and the overhead will be reported.
