NodeJs OpenTelemetry - Implementing Distributed Tracing in a NodeJS Application using OpenTelemetry

In this tutorial, we will implement distributed tracing for a nodejs application based on microservices architecture. To implement distributed tracing, we will be using open-source solutions - SigNoz and OpenTelemetry, so you can easily follow the tutorial. More about SigNoz: SigNoz - Monitor your applications and troubleshoot problems in your deployed applications, an open-source alternative to DataDog, New Relic, etc. Backed by Y Combinator.

Python Instrumentation - Monitor your Python application using OpenTelemetry and SigNoz

In this video, learn how to set up application monitoring for Python apps using an open-source solution, SigNoz and OpenTelemetry. Tracing your application can give the much-needed context required to troubleshoot performance issues. OpenTelemetry is an open-source project that can help you set up an observability framework for your cloud-native applications.

Flask OpenTelemetry - Monitoring your Flask application using OpenTelemetry

Tracing your application can give the much-needed context required to troubleshoot performance issues. OpenTelemetry is an open-source project that can help you set up an observability framework for your cloud-native applications. In this tutorial, we will use SigNoz as our backend analysis tool. SigNoz is a full-stack open-source APM tool that can store and visualize the telemetry data collected with OpenTelemetry. It is built natively on OpenTelemetry and works on the OTLP data formats.

Transaction Tracking vs Transaction Tracing - What's the Difference?

Transaction tracking and tracing are not the same thing. One of the top 10 banks in the world recently chose Nastel and this was their primary reason. They had a Priority 1 request processor incident on the mainframe where high value messages went missing and it took two weeks to find them. They began by looking at another vendor who said that they did transaction tracking. As the customer said, "They will try to tell you that they do transaction tracking, and that took us a while to drill down." So, let me explain the difference between these terms using an analogy.

gRPC - Monitor gRPC calls with OpenTelemetry | Explained with a Go example

OpenTelemetry can only help in generating the telemetry data. In order to store, and analyze that data, you need to choose a backend analysis tool. In this article, we will monitor collected data from gRPC calls with SigNoz. SigNoz is a full-stack open-source APM tool that provides metrics monitoring and distributed tracing. It is built to natively support OpenTelemetry data formats. Hence, it’s a great choice for a backend analysis tool to combine with OpenTelemetry. On a side note, OpenTelemetry provides you the freedom to select a backend analysis tool of your choice.

Getting started with OpenTelemetry visualization

OpenTelemetry is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation(CNCF) project aimed at standardizing the way we instrument applications for generating telemetry data(logs, metrics, and traces). However, OpenTelemetry does not provide storage and visualization for the collected telemetry data. An APM that can ingest telemetry data collected by OpenTelemetry can help you set up a robust observability stack.
