Handling Data


“In contrast to metrics, events are snapshots of what happened at a particular point-in-time.” from

Twitter thread (by me)

Still on this, you may literally emit an Event using a library or you can log a line at the end of the work (e.g. if it’s a webserver just before sending the response to the user) with all the information of the Event.

So if you are using Splunk to filter the logs you can search for that line (e.g. RequestAPIEvent) and you will find all the information you need. Splunk also has great features in its language that helps you to extract the information you need from that line 😃
