Lesson 186 - Fallacy #11: Observability is Optional   
(May 6, 2024)

Most people are familiar with the famous “8 Fallacies of Distributed Computing”, which I talked about in Lesson 18. A fallacy is something we believe to be true, but is in fact not true. Neal Ford and I have been working hard to identify the next 8 fallacies. In Lesson 147 I published Fallacy #9 (versioning is easy), and in Lesson 148 I published Fallacy #10 (compensating updates always work). In this lesson I’ll introduce Fallacy #11 of distributed computing: observability is optional. In this lesson I’ll demonstrate what observability is in distributed architecture and why it is mandatory for most distributed architectures.
