Making the Most Out of OpenTelemetry
OpenTelemetry is the observability solution supported by CNCF. It follows the same standards as OpenCensus and OpenTracing, meaning you can more easily prevent vendor lock-in since it decouples your application instrumentation and data export. With OpenTelemetry, you can achieve full application-level observability from its SDKs, agents, libraries, and standards.
For more information about OpenTelemetry, please refer to our posts “Introduction to OpenTelemetry,” and ”OpenTelemetry Best Practices.” Here in this post, we’ll guide you through setting it up, implementing traces with OpenTelemetry, and using Grafana, Prometheus, and Jaeger; we’ll then introduce you to AWS Distro.
