In this presentation, we explore how standard profiling and monitoring methods may fall short in identifying bottlenecks in low-latency data ingestion workflows. Instead, we showcase the power of simple yet clever methods that can uncover hidden performance limitations.
Attendees will discover unconventional techniques, including clever logging, targeted instrumentation, and specialized metrics, to pinpoint bottlenecks accurately. Real-world use cases will be presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of these methods. By the end of the session, attendees will be equipped with alternative approaches to identify bottlenecks and optimize their low-latency data ingestion workflows for high throughput.
