Transaction tracing is typically thought of something that only developers do when they need to troubleshoot a piece of their software. And lately, it’s also been used for tracing microservice-based transactions too.

These are really useful capabilities, but what if you could profile everything? Yes everything - software functions, microservice calls, file access, network requests, even bash scripts. How would this change your view on your systems? How would this enable you to better understand what your software is actually doing?

In this talk I’ll show you how to trace everything using open source sysdig. We’ll cover:
*How to trace everything from a method in your software, a service call, a network request, a shell command execution, a script, and more
*How to report on your traces to make the most sense of the data
*Use real-world examples of tracing that show its benefits
