Correlate Datadog RUM events with traces from OTel-instrumented applications

OpenTelemetry (OTel) is an open source, vendor-neutral observability framework that supplies APIs, SDKs, and tools for the instrumentation of cloud-native applications and services. OTel enables you to collect metrics, logs, and traces from a variety of sources and route them to various backends. By itself, however, it can’t help you analyze this data or correlate telemetry from different parts of your stack.

Datadog's commitment to OpenTelemetry and the open source community

The OpenTelemetry (OTel) project is an open source initiative with the goal of providing vendor-neutral standards and tools that enable users to collect telemetry from any source in their environment and send it to any backend. A core tenet of Datadog is to provide a single, unified platform for customers to easily collect and monitor all of their observability data, regardless of where it comes from.

Use library injection to auto-instrument and trace your Kubernetes applications with Datadog APM

Many organizations rely on distributed tracing in Datadog APM to gain end-to-end visibility into the performance of their Kubernetes applications. But as teams grow, it can become impractical for them to manually configure each new application with the libraries and environment variables needed for tracing.

Best practices for continuous testing with Datadog

In Parts 1 and 2, we looked at how you can build and maintain effective test suites. These steps are a key part of ensuring that application workflows function as expected. But how you run your tests is another important point to consider, so in this post, we’ll walk through best practices for executing your tests across every stage of development. Along the way, we’ll also look at how Datadog supports these practices for the applications that you are already monitoring.

Use HiveMQ and OpenTelemetry to monitor IoT applications in Datadog

Large IoT environments are highly complex and comprise multiple layers of disparate devices that must move data between each other, across potentially unreliable connections. Having visibility into each layer of your IoT environment is critical for quickly identifying problems with your deployment that could negatively impact user experience.

Configure pipeline alerts with Datadog CI monitors

CI pipelines have become an integral part of the development workflow, helping teams automate the continuous building and testing of new updates to application code. The growing importance of CI pipelines has naturally led to a need for increased visibility into their performance. In 2021, Datadog introduced CI Visibility to deliver granular performance metrics for each individual pipeline, allowing you to monitor build duration and related telemetry across all recent commits.

Highlights from AWS re:Invent 2022

Just like shopping on Black Friday, AWS re:Invent has become a post-Thanksgiving tradition for some of us at Datadog. We were excited to join tens of thousands of fellow AWS users and partners for this annual gathering that features new product announcements, technical sessions, networking, and fun. This year, we saw three themes emerge from the conference announcements and sessions.
