The use of eBPF across the cloud native landscape is exploding, especially for observability. In projects like Hubble, Pixie, and Caretta eBPF promises complete visibility at low overhead - and without any code changes. Is eBPF finally the panacea to observability problems or will it just be another deluge of unhelpful data only bringing pain to already overloaded observability teams? This panel will dive into the pros and cons of using eBPF for observability in a cloud native world. It will draw on the speaker's experience collecting, filtering, and visualizing observability data across applications, networks, profiles, and security incidents. The audience will walk away with where eBPF can help them see better and where it can be difficult to see through the swarm of data.
