Past, Present, and Future of eBPF in Cloud Native Observability - Frederic Branczyk, Polar Signals & Natalie Serrino, New Relic

eBPF has long been promising in the cloud native ecosystem but has evolved significantly over the years. Frederic will start by first giving a brief history of the past and how eBPF has developed to be what it is today. This leads us to the current state of things in the present space of observability. Here Frederic will outline how eBPF is safely used in a variety of open source, apache2 licensed, projects from Cilium Hubble, Pixie, to Parca, and others. Here we will also take a look at a simple demo on eBPF and how this can be run on a Kubernetes cluster and what we can find about that cluster just by using eBPF data. The last portion of the talk will discuss the future of observability using eBPF and where Frederic thinks it will develop, which among other things will include how eBPF will enable correlation between different signals such as connecting distributed tracing with profiling data.
