Using Distributed Tracing in Microservices Architecture

With the rise of microservices based cloud applications & its corresponding complexities, the need for observability is greater than ever. This blog looks into the what-why of distributed tracing along with few best practices to adopt for the same in microservices architecture. Distributed tracing for Microservices architecture is an emerging concept that is gaining momentum across internet-based business organizations.

Adding free and open Elastic APM as part of your Elastic Observability deployment

In a recent post we showed you how to get started with the free and open tier of Elastic Observability. Today we'll walk through what you need to do to expand your deployment so you can start gathering metrics from application performance monitoring (APM), or "tracing" data in your observability cluster, for free.

From Distributed Tracing to APM: Taking OpenTelemetry & Jaeger Up a Level

It’s no secret that Jaeger and OpenTelemetry are known and loved by the open source community — and for good reason. As part of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), they offer one the most popular open source distributed tracing solutions out there as well as standardization for all telemetry data types.

Take your mobile monitoring to the next level

While there’s room for debate in what constitutes sufficient monitoring for a mobile app, it’s no question that if you wait long enough for users to report issues, then soon you will have no users. For most mobile development teams, you are not measured against how many features you deliver or bugs you fix, but by how successful your app is and how much value it delivers to users. As a result, you need to know where the app is providing a subpar experience and why.

Get started with distributed tracing and Grafana Tempo using foobar, a demo written in Python

Daniel is a Site Reliability Engineer at k6.io. He’s especially interested in observability, distributed systems, and open source. During his free time, he helps maintain Grafana Tempo, an easy-to-use, high-scale distributed tracing backend. Distributed tracing is a way to track the path of requests through the application. It’s especially useful when you’re working on a microservice architecture.

OpenTelemetry Trace 1.0 is now available

For decades, application development and operations teams have struggled with the best way to generate, collect, and analyze telemetry data from systems and apps. In 2010, we discussed our approach to telemetry and tracing in the Dapper papers, which eventually spawned the open-source OpenCensus project, which merged with OpenTracing to become OpenTelemetry.

Announcing support for the AWS managed Lambda Layer for OpenTelemetry

Datadog’s support of OpenTelemetry—a vendor-agnostic, open source set of APIs and libraries for collecting system and application telemetry data—has helped thousands of organizations implement monitoring strategies that complement their existing workflows. Many of our customers leverage OpenTelemetry for their server- and container-based deployments, but also need visibility into the health and performance of their serverless applications running on AWS Lambda.

Logz.io and the AWS Distro for OpenTelemetry

Amazon Web Services has announced enhanced support for the open-source distribution of the OpenTelemetry project for its users. AWS Distro for OpenTelemetry (ADOT) now includes support for AWS Lambda layers for the most popular languages and additional partners integrated into the ADOT collector. And one of those partners is Logz.io! Logz.io is happy to announce that our exporter is now included in the AWS Distro for OpenTelemetry.
