How to Collect .NET Application Logs with OpenTelemetry

In the realm of modern software development, achieving true observability is paramount for understanding application behavior and performance. This demonstration focuses on a.NET application that harnesses the capabilities of OpenTelemetry to seamlessly integrate logging and tracing functionalities. OpenTelemetry, a key player in the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, provides a unified framework for comprehensive observability.

Deploy a containerized .NET Core app to Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

Microsoft Azure provides an all-encompassing service that allows you to host Docker containers on the Azure Container Registry (ACR), deploy to a production-ready Kubernetes cluster via the Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), and more. Using CircleCI, you can automatically deploy updates to your application, providing a safer and more efficient CI/CD process for managing your software. This article shows you how to automate deployments for a.Net application to Azure Kubernetes.

The Grafana OpenTelemetry Distribution for .NET: Optimized for Application Observability

The OpenTelemetry project provides many different components and instrumentations that support different languages and telemetry signals. However, new users often find it hard to pick the right ones and configure them properly for their specific use cases. For this reason, OpenTelemetry defines the concept of a distribution, which is a tailored and customized version of OpenTelemetry components. Here at Grafana Labs, we are all-in on OpenTelemetry.

How to configure OpenTelemetry .NET Automatic Instrumentation with Grafana Cloud

For those who have limited experience with OpenTelemetry, it can be intimidating to instrument.NET applications. But the OpenTelemetry community created a welcome shortcut with the first stable release of.NET Automatic Instrumentation. It simplifies the process of collecting metrics, logs, and traces from your.NET applications, without applying any changes to the source code or adding any dependencies to the OSS project.

Auto-instrumentation of .NET applications with OpenTelemetry

In the fast-paced universe of software development, especially in the cloud-native realm, DevOps and SRE teams are increasingly emerging as essential partners in application stability and growth. DevOps engineers continuously optimize software delivery, while SRE teams act as the stewards of application reliability, scalability, and top-tier performance. The challenge?
