Swift distributed tracing tools

Registered by Edward on 2014-04-17

Provide a real time end to end performance tracing/tracking tool in Swift infrastructure for developers and users to facilitate their analysis in development and operation. For example:
1) For a particular client request X, what is the actual route when it is being served by different services? Is there any difference b/w actual route and expected route even we know the access patterns?
2) What is the performance behavior of the server components and third-party services? Which part is slower than expected?
3) How can we quickly diagnose the problem when it breaks at some points ?
