Vendor Agnostic Instrumentation With The OpenTelemetry Collector

Presented by

Paul Osman, Instrumentation Engineer

About this talk

Achieving the best possible observability involves instrumenting your code with events and traces. This can be costly, and it's common for a large system to have components instrumented with different formats specific to different standards or vendors. In this session, I'll walk through using the OpenTelemetry Collector to combine traces and metrics from services instrumented with different formats. Use cases covered: * Interoperability between OpenTracing, OpenCensus, and other formats. • Using processors to modify spans • Migrating from one tracing solution to another without rewriting code • Sending traces to two separate backends

Honeycomb Learn is a webcast series designed to educate DevOps teams about what observability is and how to get started. Observability-driven development is the ability to ask any question about your production systems so you better understand and debug when incidents occur. Teams ship code confidently, learn continuously, and spend more time innovating.
