Hands-on exercises get you comfortable with logs so you can efficiently and effectively “explore the rabbit hole.”

The author shares his proven methods for researching an issue based on what appears in the logs, with the understanding that often it is not as simple as asking a question, buthowyou ask it that leads to the right answer.
