OpenTelemetry for the frontend¶
Read Ben Greenberg's Using OpenTelemetry to reduce the web development tooling tax, an interesting use case.
Adri Villela on Auto-Instrumentation Is Magic: Using OpenTelemetry Python with Lightstep, a detailed hands-on. Noice!
In Database Decision-Making for Observability, from Simple to Complex, Jonah Kowall hosts Pranay Prateek of SigNoz and they discuss o11y datastore challenges (ClickHouse is a thing ;)
Masato Naka provides a short but comprehensive Prometheus overview.
Monitoring, APM, and o11y¶
Application performance monitoring vs. application performance observability by Dave Andersonis discusses monitoring/APM/observability (via the CNCF blog).
A couple of new tools as well as tooling updates I stumbled upon and found noteworthy:
- Parseable is "Prometheus for logs" (so, like Grafana Loki?)
- flow-telemetry (by eBay) makes your CI pipeline speak OpenTelemetry
- Coguard adds configuration support for OpenTelemetry
- Spring Cloud Sleuth OpenTelemetry extension is GA
That was it for this edition of the o11y newsletter. Feel free to share news items with me via Twitter—DMs are open if you like to share something in private. Stay safe and hope to see you around next week!
