In this article we will look at the agent-like instrumentation tool T-Trace. The tool provides non-intrusive instrumentation capabilities for applications running on GraalVM. We will instrument a simple NodeJS application by using T-Trace and OpenTracing API with Jaeger NodeJS tracer.

I will get straight to the point, Jaeger at the moment only visualizes collected data from instrumented applications. It does not perform any post-processing (except service dependency diagram) or any calculations to derive other interesting metrics or features from traces it collects. This is a pity because traces contain the richest information from all telemetry signals combined!

In this article, we are going to look at deploying Jaeger on Kubernetes and OpenShift with Elasticsearch storage using operators. We will go through the configuration (custom resources) and also see what benefits OpenShift offers over vanilla Kubernetes.

As explained on the Eclipse Che website, “Che brings your Kubernetes application into your development environment and provides an in-browser IDE, allowing you to code, build, test and run applications exactly as they run on production from any machine”. However when deployed in your production environment, those same applications can be monitored using observability tools to understand their performance to help inform future improvements.
This talk comes from practical experience of running a cloud-based SAAS under Kubernetes for the last two years. Prometheus is good for the big picture view of how things are running, while Jaeger acts like a microscope on the internal workings of your system.

Shows how a microservices architecture can be instrumented to generate Opentracing events which are monitored and presented using Jaeger. The demo is based on one of our github projects - see estafet.com/github and download the source which runs on minishift.

Opentracing gives us a standard for recording interactions across a distributed microservice architecture, whilst Jaeger is a monitoring tool that shows us the flow of events. It gives huge insight to both devs and ops teams, and is also a potentially cheaper way of demonstrating compliance with MiFID and GDPR.

Learn the basics of OpenTracing and Jaeger and why they are so awesome. Jason Newman, Chief Architect at Weave, presents on how Weave uses OpenTracing and Jaeger to diagnose issues on their micro-service architecture.
