Description

Having full visibility throughout the system you build is well
established best practice. Usually one knows which metrics to collect,
how and what to profile or instrument to understand why the system
exhibits this level of performance. All of this becomes more challenging
as soon as eBPF layer is included.

In this talk Dmitrii shed some light on those bits of your service that use
eBPF, step by step with topics such as:

  • How to collect execution metrics of eBPF programs?
  • How can we profile these eBPF programs?
  • What are the common pitfalls to avoid?

The talk will provide the attendees with an approach to analyze and
reason about eBPF programs performance.
