PHP - Monitoring a PHP application with OpenTelemetry and SigNoz

Jun 15, 2022

In this tutorial, we will use OpenTelemetry to instrument a PHP application for telemetry data.

It’s essential to monitor your PHP application for performance issues and bugs. Application owners need good telemetry data from their application in order to monitor it effectively. That’s where OpenTelemetry comes into the picture. OpenTelmetry provides client libraries for many programming languages, including PHP, which can be used to instrument applications.
