Prometheus has become something of a de-facto standard for how to start monitoring Kubernetes. There are good reasons for this: It’s open source, freely available and embraced by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).

This has propelled Prometheus to a position as the obvious choice for anyone initially wanting to monitor Kubernetes.

Distributed tracing is a critical piece of application observability. But instrumenting your applications with traces is not always easy. Whether you are an SRE or a developer, you need application observability. But you might not prefer to instrument code. That is where the Wavefront Tracing Agent for Java comes in handy, as it provides application observability without needing any code change.

External linking helps engineering teams connect Wavefront to logging tools such as vRealize Log Insight, ELK, or Splunk. For example, when you have received alerts and see them in Wavefront, and then want to investigate them further by drilling down into logs, you can quickly do that using the Wavefront External Links feature.
