NodeJS application monitoring with OpenTelemetry

NodeJS application monitoring with OpenTelemetry

Aug 1, 2021

In this video, we show a step by step process to monitor your Node JS application with OpenTelemetry. We use SigNoz as the backend and visualisation UI.

SigNoz is an open source alternative to DataDog, NewRelic, etc. We natively support Opentelemetry based instrumentation. You can instrument any application written in a language/framework supported by OpenTelemetry and visualise metrics and traces in SigNoz.

In this video we take you through a hands on tutorial on how to monitor your NodeJS application with OpenTelemetry & SigNoz. We take a NodeJS sample app and instrument it with Opentelemetry. After that we visualise the metrics & traces in SigNoz.

As you can see you can get set up and running in less than 25 mins. For more details check out our NodeJS instrumentation docs at
