this piece got me whooping and cheering; another brave soldier speaking deep truth about metrics and logs! i was all ready share the gospel about honeycomb -- but he was already there. ๐Ÿ lol god dammit @nickstenning ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿ˜‰  https://whiteink.com/2019/logs-vs-metrics-a-false-dichotomy/ โ€ฆ

wasn't i just saying what a damn good week it has been for logs, or the structured data blobs formerly referred to as logs?

# You need logs and metrics for any system
# You can derive arbitrary metrics from log streams
# Most metric re-aggregation is inaccurate or plain wrong

"This post is not a pitch, but if you want to see what putting these ideas into practice might look like, you should try out Honeycomb. Itโ€™s not an exaggeration to say that if you havenโ€™t actually used a product that does this, itโ€™s hard to imagine how powerful a tool it can be."

stop, stop ๐Ÿ˜ i'm blushing! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

(jk --do keep on for however long)

and at the end, a link that made my blood run cold. read it next time you are tempted to think nostalgically about the bad old days when we had to think about You-Know-What. (h***w***)  https://apenwarr.ca/log/20190216 

i may not miss hardware one byte, but i *have* missed the dark and sardonic humor stylings of the hardware engineer.
O you sweet cynical bastards.

...in this case @apenwarr, who i do not know but followed immediately upon reading "I am more scars than person".

YES, brother.
