Debugging applications in the cloud can be challenging. Microservice applications are designed to run independently with their own databases and logging, but this poses problems for developers when attempting to trace possible bugs in the cloud. To add to this, some bugs don't show up until the developer's code is up and running in the cloud and are caused by infrastructure and environmental—rather than logic—issues. This is where developers can benefit from utilizing third-party tools to better track and target bugs that occur.
In this guide, we will discuss how to effectively debug microservice applications in the cloud. This requires implementing a system or tool that allows development teams to set up non-breaking, non-intrusive options. Some of these solutions enable developers to observe and trace issues into code as well as monitor said systems. With the right tools and systems in place, developers can better manage complex microservice architecture.
